Scouting Report
Dylan Jones, RHP, Averill Park HS, NY (2016)

Jones stands 5-foot-10, 175-pounds and built very solidly.
From the mound he uses a high knee lift, hands stay high, fast tempo, hands separate over rubber. Drops and drives hard towards home, hip opens up early, shoulders stay level. Arm action is down, back and quick with signs for above average velocity. He uses a long stride, throws from a mid-3/4 slot, long finish. He broke off a few curveballs that showed next-level spin, and bite. He finishes well over his front side.

Analysis
Jones is a hard working player with next-level goals. He's built very solidly, broad shoulders big hands - long fingers. Reports from a prior winter camp had him up to 86 mph, however we did not gun at our Jan. 3rd combine trying to protect the player. We did see him back in Oct. up to 84mph so there's no question he has velocity projection. There's no doubt come Feb. 15 at our Preseason All-State MEGA event Jones will be locked and loaded. He's going to be a fun player to watch over the next few years.
