Throughout the 2016-17 offseason, Fish Stripes is counting down the top 100 Marlins of all-time. For comparison’s sake, we are using the Wins Above Replacement (WAR) metric as a measuring device. The top 100 WAR ratings are being featured. Today’s Marlin, Todd Jones, earned 3.0 while with Florida.
Jones, born on April 24th, 1968, was a 6’3”, 200 lb. right-handed throwing left-handed hitting pitcher from Marietta, Georgia. The Houston Astros chose him in the first round of the 1989 amateur draft with the 27th overall selection. Also chosen in that round were Ben McDonald, Frank Thomas, Cal Eldred, Mo Vaughn, Chuck Knoblauch, and future Marlin Charles Johnson.
