By the time this season ends, Hunter Jones' highlight reel may turn into a box set. 

For the third time this month, the White Sox prospect made a jaw-dropping catch in center field for the Double-A Barons. On Thursday, he took away a hit from rehabbing Major Leaguer Colby Rasmus in the sixth inning of Birmingham's 5-3 win over Montgomery.

It was the second eye-popping catch of the week for the Seattle native, who attracted national attention with his web gem against Isaac Galloway in Monday's 8-3 victory over Jacksonville.

Jackson's Jamie Westbrook also numbers among Jones' victims this season. On April 8, the 25-year-old laid out to take a hit away from the Arizona prospect in the 10th inning of the Barons' 8-7 win.
