Charles Jones | OF, 21 yo, 6-3, 235, BR, TR | 2010 Draft – 7 | (A) 128 G, 472 PA, .236/.321/.371, .692 OPS, 10 HR, 51 RBI, 12 SB, 8 CS, 47 BB, 140 K
Chuckie had an encouraging year after disappointing some in his first two seasons as a pro. He hit at a much-improved .269/.348/.431 clip with 7 HR in the second half for Augusta. The Giants drafted him in the 7th round out of high school in 2010 as a high risk/reward pick. He’s a tremendous athlete who’s built like a linebacker, but he needs to keep working on his approach at the plate if he wants to climb the latter. Still a very raw player, but we’re starting to see the tools come out a bit.
They said it: “He has tools, flashing above-average raw and run, and that’s a pretty nice combination to have. The problem is putting the rest of his game together.” ~ David Lee, Augusta Chronicle
