The Twins used Their 2012 4th round pick on RH reliever Zack Jones from San Jose State. Jones throws his fastball in the mid 90s and has a slider. Scouts project the 21 year old prospect as a major league reliever. Jones owned an impressive 3.5 to 1 K to BB ratio this season at SJSU. Jones will start the season at Elizabethton and he made his pro debut last night, giving up 1 hit and striking out two in the E'Twins win over Danville.

Jones is off to a great start to his pro career. He started the season at E-Town and pitched six scoreless innings, giving up 2 hits and 4 BBs while striking out 9. Jones was then promoted to Beloit. In 2 games for the Snappers, he has pitched three scoreless innings, giving up 2 hits and striking out 7 without a walk. Jones also picked up a save for the Snappers. This hard thrower is living up to the high draft picks the Twins spent on him.
