In case you didn’t notice the autocorrect-hating name, Druw Jones is indeed the son of Andruw Jones. The young man, a high school senior, plays…centerfield. He has committed to play in college for Vanderbilt. However, don’t expect him ever to suit up for the Commodores. Why? It is because he just might be the #1 pick in this year’s draft.
He’s reputed to run well and to have a good glove. His response to hearing ”over rated” chants during an at bat in a recent high school game? Home run.
The site grades him as an elite prospect in every measure they use. The apple indeed does not fall far from the tree.

For some reason, the video only embedded a still photo. Oh, well, trust me, it was a home run off a fastball.
if no CBA is arrived at will there be a draft this year?
I’m going to guess yes—nobody drafted will be immediate major leaguers, and the minor leagues aren’t locked out
