In the Middle of an “Overrated” Chant, Top Draft Prospect Druw Jones Demonstrated That He Is Not

Chicago Cubs

It’s very unlikely that high school outfielder Druw Jones, one of the top prep bats in the draft (and son of former stud big leaguer Andruw Jones), will last to the Chicago Cubs’ pick at number seven overall. It’s a really great draft group at the top, but Jones is likely to go within the first five picks. Maybe even first overall.

That said, it’s still fun to follow his season, like those of the other top draft prospects this year. And Jones just gave us an incredible highlight: right in the middle of hostile road chants of “overrated” – an absolutely ridiculous thing to do to a high school kid, by the way – Jones sent one WAAAAAY out to center.

Absolutely perfect moment:

Bonus props for the stare down walk, the bat toss, and then the shush as he approached home plate. He earned every bit of that.
