Garrett Jones re-signs with the Yankees


Just a few days ago, the Yankees designated Garrett Jones for assignment after they traded for his replacement in Dustin Ackley. However, Ackley strained his lumbar muscle (without playing a full game with the team) and that prompted the Yankees to reunite with Jones, almost as if he had never left the fold.

According to Jack Curry of the YES Network, the Yankees have re-signed Jones to a contract worth $1.8 Million. The $1.8 Million was part of Jones’s original $5 Million deal he signed prior to joining the Yankees at the start of the 2015 season.

Jones was hitting .215/.257/.361 in 57 games with the Yankees as a bench player.

    Burawa is DFAed to make a spot on 40 man roster for Severino. Cotham goes down? Why? Cotham can pitch a multiple innings as Mitchell is unavailable. Just in case if Severino gets rocked early.

    Jones is a waste. Why not rely on Pirela hitting 333 at Triple A or Rob Ref (RF/2B)? Time wasted.

    Maybe Hotdog has a point, but I'm all in with Tom's idea to use the "kids."

  5. Michael R says:

    Sorry Tom, that was Balt Yank's idea. My bad.
