Brian Costello of the NY Daily News, reported this morning that the Yankees finally came to an agreement with Andruw Jones for a 1-year deal worth $2 million. Jones is expected to be the back-up, 4th outfielder and will most likely get ABs at DH.
The Yankees had been chasing Jones for weeks, but the two sides were reported recently as having not been able to come to terms on money. For the past two seasons, playing with the Rangers and White Sox, Jones made only $500,000 with each team. His player value dropped tremendously after an unsuccessful season in 2008 with the Dodgers.
