Scouting Report

8/19/21 - The son of Andruw Jones, Druw has a tall, lean and live frame with room to fill out. He’s a very athletic outfielder with plus instincts and good routes. He has excellent range to go with good closing speed. His throws are accurate with good carry. At the plate, he has an advanced approach with a quick, compact swing. He catches up to high velocity and keeps the barrel in the hitting zone with the ball jumping off his bat. He has the ability to drive the ball to all fields. He has the speed to steal bags and projects to be a plus defender in the outfield.

Area Code Games
2022 OF Druw Jones (GA, Vanderbilt recruit) didn’t enjoy the statline filling that he normally shows, but the upside is even more impressive. Wiry long and thin with elite athleticism, the 6-foot-2, 175-pounder might hold the highest upside in the class, and showcased an innate ability to slow the game down at the plate. His flat plane produces louder contact, and he had no issue covering the plate and utilizing the entire field. What stood out most about his upside came in batting practice where he showcased some big power to the left centerfield gap, and effortlessly cleared the fence on multiple occasions.

PBR Showdown
Vanderbilt commit. 6-foot-3, 175-pound right-handed hitting outfielder, elite athlete, lean, lanky frame, one of the top bats in nationally in the 2022 class. Projectable frame that has not even begun to fill out. Tall setup at the plate, reverse toe-tap stride, hands drop and load back smoothly. An advanced bat, high level feel for the barrel and the zone, showed an innate ability to barrel the ball routinely. Athletic hands coupled with bat speed allow for Jones to drive the ball with force to all fields, with added strength to his frame, will be able to impact the game for both average and power.

 

8/21/19 - His quick-twitch tools are very loud across the board and he’s able to punish baseballs best by lagging his bat through the zone, generating regular hard-hit contact. Jones is a high-follow prospect for this mix of premium tools and athleticism. His bloodlines only bolster confidence of Jones’ ability to continue maturing at this rapid pace, as the son of the five-time MLB All-Star and Atlanta Braves legend of the same name.
