Boras says Andruw Jones, as expected, has undergone a knee procedure. Has spoken with the Yankees about a return. Was a good fit.
That about sums it up. An Andruw Jones/New York Yankees reunion would make all the sense in the world. The Yankees always need a lefty-mashing extra bat and Jones fits that to a t. He crushes southpaws and won’t embarrass himself in the field. Usually with deals like this, I’m tempted to say that it’s better to let the player go a year early than a year late, but Jones’s role was just limited enough that the risk isn’t huge.
There was another OF note coming from Jerry Crasnick of ESPN via MLBTR.The Yankees are, according to Crasnick, one of eight teams interested in Grady Sizemore. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but, I don’t want that. At all. Despite all the talent, Sizemore just has no spot on the Yankees. If he hit right handed, maybe he could give Jones a run for his money, but the fact that he’s lefty and can’t seem to stay healthy tells me that he’s not a fit for the Yankees. The only way Sizemore makes sense for the Yankees is if they trade a corner outfielder and use Jones (or another lefty masher) and Sizemore as a platoon. There’s a non-zero chance for that, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on it.
