Rumors: Yankees Could Close In On Andruw Jones Wed

Via Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports:

Yankees’ could close in on A. Jones tmrw. Boras will be in NY for R. Soriano press conf. Sides not far apart.

Makes sense. The Yankees seem to have been interested in Andruw Jones for sometime now. An alternative option, Scott Hairston, just signed with the Mets. So that leaves the Yankees with only Johnny Damon as an obviously outfielder if they don’t land Jones. So with his agent around tomorrow both sides will try to get a deal done.

One problem holding up this deal seems to be money. Bill Madden of the NY Daily News reported that a source said the two sides were still “pretty far apart” when it comes to money so they’ll have to figure that part out. We’ll see what happens tomorrow.
