Damon Jones had not anticipated an April following his outstanding minor-league season in 2019.
If the outbreak of COVID-19 hadn’t put baseball and much of the world on hold, the hard-throwing left-hander would have likely finished the first month of the Triple-A season.
His fiancée and daughter are visiting his parents in Idaho. Despite the adversity, the 25-year-old is well aware that he is in a better position than others when it comes to the epidemic.
Jones told Phillies Nation over the phone last weekend, “I think Idaho is one of the nicer states to be in, just because it’s not as populated.” “I think it’s a blessing that there aren’t as many people in relatively small regions.”
Jones is practicing as best he can from home in order to be ready for the 2020 season, whenever that may be. When baseball returns, he’ll be aiming to build on his strong season from last year and establish himself as a major league pitcher.
Jones had his greatest season since being picked in the 18th round of the 2017 MLB Draft by the Phillies.
During the 2018 All-Star Break, he added a slider to his repertoire, which he learnt from watching a video of current Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer gripping his pitches.
Jones added another pitch to his arsenal that may miss bats, particularly those of left-handed batters.
