Jones in, LoMo soon out in Miami?
Ken Rosenthal has reported the Marlins are close to signing first baseman/outfielder Garrett Jones to a deal in Miami, possibly setting off a domino effect of other moves. Rosenthal says it likely means Mike Napoli won’t be coming to Miami, and there could be a deal imminent involving Logan Morrison.
Jones lost his job in Pittsburgh down the stretch last season to Justin Morneau (who is reportedly about to settle down in Denver), and then was let go this winter by the Pirates.
