Yankees’ Spencer Jones embraces Aaron Judge comparisons

Comparisons are inevitable throughout any draft process, but in most cases they are unfair to the player getting picked because of the lofty expectations they create. 

Spencer Jones doesn’t mind. 

The Yankees’ first-round pick last month, who has been followed by Aaron Judge comparisons that only grew louder when he was drafted by the same organization as Judge, isn’t shying away from them.

“I think it’s cool more than anything else,” Jones said Thursday on a conference call. “It doesn’t concern me at all or add anything. I just feel like it’s cool that people like to make comparisons like that. I’m excited to get to work and show people what I can do.”
