The #2 overall selection in the 2022 MLB draft injures shoulder on Monday during batting practice
PHOENIX, Ariz. ( KYMA, KECY-TV ) - Is there a curse surrounding the Arizona Diamondbacks and their top picks? Perhaps it's a spell of bad luck or unfortunate coincidences. After being introduced to Diamondback fans at Chase Field over the weekend and after signing a MLB record deal for a high school player, the #2 overall selection in the 2022 MLB draft, Druw Jones, injured his shoulder during his first practice on Monday.
Jones was in his last round of batting practice during his first practice and on his second the last swing when he felt something in his shoulder.
Jones will see team physician Gary Waslewski on Wednesday to determine the extent of the injury and what the next steps will be.
It's possible that Jones will need surgery, but that won't be known for sure until he's seen by Waslewski. Regardless, it appears that Jones will not play again this year.
