One thought on “Yankees’ Spencer Jones makes headlines with 470-ft home run in first spring training game

  1. A gifted left-handed hitter with the speed to play CF in YS? What’s not to like? Now, Jones won’t get the run in major league. smo that Dominguez got last year, but if he takes advantage his opportunities, and gets off to a very good start at AA, could be beat Dominguez to the active roster at Triple-A?

    Also, if he does all this, anybody going to wonder why everyone was asking for him in trade talks and why they said NO?
