  • Jared Jones Fans Seven In No-Decision Tuesday

    Headshot for Jared Jones

    Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Jared Jones turned in another strong start in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Mets. Jones pitched five scoreless innings, allowing one hit and no walks with seven strikeouts. The 22-year-old rookie has been stellar through his first four big-league starts, compiling a 3.13 ERA and 12.52 K/9 rate with just two walks in 23 IP. He will look to keep his hot streak going in his next scheduled start against the Red Sox.

  • Jared Jones Fans Eight More In Quality Start

    Headshot for Jared Jones

    Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Jared Jones logged a quality start on Thursday, taking the loss in the 5-1 defeat to the Philadelphia Phillies after giving up three runs on six hits and striking out eight over 6 1/3 innings. Jones put together another great performance overall, with an Alec Bohm solo home run in the fourth inning and a Brandon Marsh two-run homer serving as the brunt of the damage to his line. The hard-throwing 22-year-old right-hander is exhibiting plenty of strikeout upside for fantasy managers thus far, fanning 25 over the first 18 major-league innings of his career to go with a 4.00 ERA and an outstanding 0.94 WHIP. If he cuts down on the loud contact (four HRs through three starts), Jones could keep his rotation spot when the Bucs inevitably call up 2023 No. 1 overall pick Paul Skenes later this year. On Tuesday, he's slated to face a New York Mets offense that's suddenly awakening from their early-season swoon.

  • Jared Jones Strikes Out 10 In Major League Debut

    Headshot for Jared Jones

    Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Jared Jones had a phenomenal major league debut, recording a win and striking out 10 batters in the team's 9-3 win against the Miami Marlins on Saturday. The rookie walked two batters and gave up three earned runs, but it was a spectacular debut overall for the 22-year-old righty. He was dominant in spring training, tossing 16 1/3 scoreless innings. With his impressive performance, fantasy managers should add Jones in all league formats. His next start will be a tougher test, though, as he is slated to face the Baltimore Orioles on Friday in the Pirates' home opener.

  • Jared Jones Makes Opening Day Roster

    Headshot for Jared Jones

    Pittsburgh Pirates right-handed pitching prospect Jared Jones has made the team's Opening Day roster. The team's No. 3 prospect, per MLB Pipeline, didn't all an earned run over 16 1/3 Grapefruit League innings this spring. The 22-year-old is in line to start the third game of the season this Saturday against the Marlins in Miami, according to general manager Ben Cherington. In addition to not allowing an earned run in spring training, Jones walked eight and struck out 15. There's clear strikeout upside here for fantasy managers in deep-mixed and NL-only leagues, but control could be the problem as he gets a taste of big-league hitters for the first time. Obviously, Jones should be rostered in all dynasty/keeper leagues as well.

  • Offseason In Review: Pittsburgh Pirates

    The Pirates’ ongoing rebuild showed some encouraging signs last year but it didn’t prompt the front office to go out and win the offseason. They made some modest additions as their focus remains clearly on the future, but did sign another core member of their club to a sizable extension. Major League Signings LHP Aroldis…

  • Jared Jones In Competition For Rotation Spot

    Headshot for Jared Jones

    Pittsburgh Pirates pitching prospect Jared Jones is in a competition for a rotation spot, according to skipper Derek Shelton. The 22-year-old was the club's second-round pick in the 2020 draft and turned a corner in the 2023 season. The right-hander worked to a tidy 2.23 ERA across 10 starts at Double-A before posting a 4.72 ERA across 16 outings (15 starts) at the Triple-A level. However, he also posted a 3.98 FIP at the minors' highest level alongside a strong 18.6% K-BB%. Jones has shown a strong ability to miss bats in the minors while putting forth improved control. His value in redraft leagues is low in 2024 but his strikeout stuff combined with a quick ascent through the minors makes him a strong dynasty league target moving forward.
