Andruw Jones signs with the Yankees

Everyone needs a lefty-masher off the bench. Andruw Jones was that for the Yankees last year. He will be again next year too: Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees just signed him.

The deal: one year, $2 million plus incentives that can rack him up an additional $1.4 million. Not bad for a guy who hit .247/.356/.495 with 13 homers and 33 RBI in 222 plate appearances last year. Jones may not be the future Hall of Famer some of us thought he’d be several years ago, but he’s a beyond solid bench bat.

Good signing.
