Marcus Jones, OF, Washington Nationals
Jones went to North Carolina State, but went to high school in Bethesda, Maryland, making him a local guy for the Nationals. Drafted in the 11th round last year, he is quite toolsy and did OK in college but has some issues with contact. He hit .333/.403/.433 in the New York-Penn League, but with a weakish 5/17 BB/K mark in 60 at-bats. He is well-regarded defensively and has good tools, but is still working on the consistency of his swing and his plate discipline. He is an under-the-radar guy with some upside, but also needs refinement.
