Naquin will be in Cleveland for spring training, if Bauers is on the 40 man for spring, then he will get a legit shot to make the team. Johnson is older plus is a legit RF candidate at the end of the day. All of them bat left handed so they are ahead of Jones at this current moment. Bauers, Johnson etc have all the tools needed to make it into the pros, they just need to put it together. I'm not saying Jones cannot outplay them and earn a spot, but those guys are ahead right now of him in the pecking order to make the 25 man roster, not in potential. We dont know how any of them have progressed so we shall see in spring.Again though, if you're going to trade Lindor and let Santana and Hernandez walk, you're going to need offense from somewhere. Naquin may not be back as well. You really want to see Bauers get another shot or Daniel Johnson?
I don't expect Jones to break camp with the club because of the position change and so they can manipulate service time, but I absolutely expect him to be in Cleveland by May at the latest.
