This guy has been quite good.

Had he previously been regarded as a nice prospect?

No. Other than Addison Reed, I don't think any Sox farmhand was regarded as a nice prospect.

Jones has always been thought of as a big arm, but a project. Specifically, he has had trouble throwing strikes and repeating his delivery. They have simplified him some and he added a cutter. He has looked good basically since the second half of last year.

His stuff is pretty eye catching. He looks nasty.

Seems like he hides the ball really well. It might be tough for hitters who haven't seen him before to pick up his release point.

Very similar motion to Masterson.

Potential of this young pen even w.o Thornton is encouraging.
