Getting the feeling that maybe Jones is not a huge part of the Yankees’ future. And that, with this DFA being his second in two weeks, maybe he’s not gonna accept a minor league assignment assuming he clears waivers.
In other news, when Jones signed with the Yankees, many took it as a sign that A-Rod would not get as many looks at DH. Then again, no battle plan ever survives engagement with the enemy.
