A. Jones looking to return to Majors

Ten-time Gold Glove winner Andruw Jones is looking to return to Major League Baseball, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, after spending the past two seasons playing in Japan.

Jones, who will turn 38 in April, is reportedly drawing interest from “at least two teams” that are interested in using the five-time All-Star as either a designated hitter or a right-handed platoon player. He last played in the Majors in 2012 when he struggled to a .197/.294/.408 batting line with the Yankees, though he still racked up 14 homers over 94 games. He would return to the Majors with 434 career home runs over parts of 17 seasons.

Over the last two years in Japan, Jones compiled a .232/.392/.441 line with 50 combined homers.

He is represented by Scott Boras…..so I wouldn’t count on any team signing him to a Major League contract. It would be a Minors deal, with a spring invite….and completely incentive laden. Boras claiming that two teams are interested….I highly doubt it…and if they are it’s probably Oakland seeing how they have re-tooled the team…but remember back to Jones LA days….as short lived as they were…he is a ME player, represented by less than savory agent!

jones has had it, roflmao
