Jonas continues to show a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, he displays smooth / fluid actions. Range is a plus as reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. He works to get behind balls but needs to play through more with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent hard contact with power showing best to the pull side. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great personality, is very coachable, and plays the game hard.
