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.
