Padres To Sign Duanel Jones

The Padres have agreed to sign Dominican third base prospect Duanel Jones for $900K, now that the commissioner's office has cleared the prospect's paperwork. Jones will serve a 50-game suspension for violating baseball's minor league drug policy. He had reportedly signed with the Giants in December for $1.3MM, but they voided the contract a month later over the failed drug test. 

MLB.com's Corey Brock reported that the signing had become official today, over a month after SI's Melissa Segura first reported the agreement (Twitter link).

Honest question: What can he bring to the table for the Padres? I don’t know much about this guy.
