MLB.com has reported the deal is official. Andruw Jones has now with the Texas Rangers. It is a minor league deal worth $500,000. He can make up to $1 million in bonus money for making 620 plate appearances.
Talk about falling from the wayside. Once a part of the most devastating one-two punch in the Atlanta Braves lineup that, more often than not, would devastate the New York Mets in games is now a minor leaguer.
Altogether now: Awwww!
It looks that way.
Yahoo! Sports is reporting the Texas Rangers have an interest in Andruw Jones. They are proposing a minor league contract in hopes he can come up to replace Josh Hamilton.
Ironically, the New York Yankees made the same offer. Funny how he declined.
The Rangers would like to move Hamilton from centerfield to right field.
