Bucs Dugout Community Prospect #17

JaCoby Jones is the Bucs' #16 prospect, collecting 31% of the vote in really close round. Honestly, I probably could have let this one go on a little longer and the results could have switched but it has taken a long time to get through the last few spots and I have to call it at some point (sorry Barrett Barnes fans). Either way, Jones is certainly deserving of the spot. He had a really strong debut for the Bucs in short season ball after being a 3rd round pick in 2013. He also surprised some people by seeing some action at shortstop. If Jones can stick at short long term, it would really help to bump him up these lists (well, that and continuing to play well, of course).

As requested I will be adding Michael De La Cruz (who was born July 10, 199-freakin'-6...I dare you to read that and not feel like you're a hundred years old) to the poll this round but if you want to vote for somebody else, you can do so in the comments. As always, there will be a section in the comments where you can still do +1 for "write ins." I'll count up the votes for any omitted player just to make sure we get the winners in the right spots. I'm thinking that I'll start off with 5 guys per poll but as we get deeper into the list we can expand it if there are lots of guys getting votes.

In the comment section, I'll put up a spot for other votes, testers and (most importantly) community discussion. I'd like to get at least 20 guys on the list. This is a change from the original goal of 30. I might still go to 30 but I'm also considering stopping the list at 20 unless somebody else wants to keep it going. Feel free to talk about it in the discussion section. So far we have:

1. Gregory Polanco

2. Jameson Taillon

3. Tyler Glasnow

4. Austin Meadows

5. Alen Hanson

6. Nick Kingham

7. Josh Bell

8. Reese McGuire

9. Tony Sanchez

10. Luis Heredia

11. Harold Ramirez

12. Andrew Lambo

13. Stolmy Pimentel

14. Clay Holmes

15. Joely Rodriguez (this seems like the most common spelling but SB Nation has it Joley)

16. JaCoby Jones
