Rangers Sign Andruw Jones

New, 39 comments

From the NY Post:

The Rangers New York Rangers will announce in the next few days that they have signed center fielder Andruw Jones to a minor league contract that will pay him a base salary of $500,000 if he makes the majors, the Post has learned.

Jones will also have an opportunity to make $1 million more in bonuses, but to earn that total, he would have to be close to a full-time player, which is dubious at best.

At least we can stop worrying about whether he will come back to Atlanta. I'm glad we didn't give him a contract. Andruw needs to prove himself and find himself and the Braves don't have the patience for that. This also makes me think that the Braves have other options they believe will play out and fill their left field vacancy.
