The New York Yankees have benefitted greatly from a few of their young stars that were previously in the farm system.
However, there are more stars down in the minor league system who may soon be ready to make an impact on the team, just as Jake Bauers and Anthony Volpe have.
Down in the minors at the moment is outfielder and first baseman Spencer Jones.
Jones hits from the left side of the plate and is putting up some solid numbers down in the minors.
He is hitting .291 with a .330 on-base percentage, five home runs, and a wRC+ of 136 in just 20 games.
On Twitter, a Yankees fan page posted a graphic featuring Jones’ stats.

At the minor league level, Jones is producing quite well.
The 21-year-old was drafted by the Yankees in the first round last season.
Prior to the draft, he put up some solid numbers with Vanderbilt University, hitting for a .370 average with 12 home runs, 60 RBI, and an OPS of 1.103.
His college numbers are nothing short of impressive and he has continued to stay the course in the Yankees minor league system.
This is certainly a reason to be excited for Yankees fans, who are hoping that their young players can ignite hope for the future and keep them in contention for years to come.
The Yankees are 17-15, but sit in last place in the ever-competitive American League East division.
They were leapfrogged by the Boston Red Sox earlier in the week.
But Jones’ minor league production has to have Yankees fans feeling good about the future.NEXT: Yankees GM Expresses Optimism Despite Rough Start
