Breaking: Pirates Set to Promote Jared Jones to Triple-A

A baseball source has confirmed to me that the Pittsburgh Pirates have indeed promoted RHP Jared Jones to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Jones has been on a tear in Double-A Altoona, continuously pumping high-90s fastballs and even developing an average to above-average changeup.

Jones’ biggest issue since being drafted by the Pirates has been his control, and since coming to Altoona, Jones has dialed down on the walks, albeit a small portion.

Jones should be due up within the next couple of starts for Indianapolis to make his Triple-A debut.

Jones, who won’t turn 22 until August of 2023, will be one of the youngest players on the Triple-A roster. It seems as though the Pirates have placed Jones on the fast track and have high hopes for the California native.

The 2020 second-round pick’s final numbers in Double-A read 1-4 record, 2.23 ERA, 44.1 innings pitched, 32 hits, 16 walks, and 47 strikeouts.
