In his Triple-A debut tonight, Jones went five innings, allowed just one hit and one walk, and struck out seven.
JJ is one of the good guys, so to see him not only get this opportunity after spending nearly two calendar years in Trenton, but for him to excel in it…you just couldn’t be happier for the guy.
Unfortunately, it seems very likely that it may be the only opportunity he gets at that level for a little while. Jones will likely be returned to Trenton’s roster after the game, and make his scheduled start against Portland on the 3rd.
