Andruw mulling return to Yankees

The Yankees would like Andruw Jones back as a reserve outfielder who can mash left-handed pitching, and agent Scott Boras says his client is aware of Brian Cashman’s interest.

“I know they liked him,” Boras said. “Cash told me that he thought he filled the role that he had very well. He was very well respected in the clubhouse, so I’m sure they want him back.”

Jones hit 13 homers in 190 at-bats, and while the part-time role wasn’t his first choice, Boras said Jones knows that playing every day is unlikely.

“I think he wanted to play more than what he played in New York,” Boras said. “Certainly, hitting 13 home runs in a couple hundred at bats, he’s probably deserving. He understands he’s not going to be a full time player.”
