Rumors: Yankees Considering Andruw Jones

Via Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated:

Andruw Jones in on the Yankees list of righty hitting OFs to consider.

I wanted to bring this one up to kind of debunk it a little. I’m not saying that the Yankees aren’t considering Jones, it’s very possible that they are, but Jones just happens to be a Scott Boras client and Heyman has a reputation of passing along anything Boras says. In this case Boras would want Heyman to pass this along because it could cause other teams who might be interested in Jones to up their offer if they think the Yankees are involved.

If the Yankees are considering Jones that would be a very good thing though. Jones can play all three outfield positions adequately, shows patience at the plate, and still has some pop in his bat. He’s also a right handed bat who would compliment the lefties in their lineup. So it does make sense that the Yankees would be interested.

  1. Well he's earned $0.5 million each of the past two years. He wasn't bad last year though so maybe he'll be looking for a raise.

    As I said in response to the initial Jan. 3 post, I like the idea. Still curious as to what it might cost.
