Jones is coming

General manager Jon Daniels confirmed a New York Post report that says the Rangers will announce this week that they have signed free-agent center fielder Andruw Jones to a minor-league contract. The value of the contract would be $500,000 if Jones makes the big-league roster with incentives that could play Jones $1 million if he plays regularly. Jones can opt out of his contract with the Rangers on March 20.

A deal with reliever Brendan Donnelly should be completed in the next few days, Daniels said. Donnelly, who had Tommy John surgery in 2007, would make $950,000 if he makes the team and has two dates (March 27 and April 27) he can ask for his release if not on the big-league roster.

Jason Jennings, who agreed to terms late Thursday, would make $800,000 plus incentives.

Nuts to this insanity!

Another terrible roster move... Unless Jones can pitch, and we don't know it...

If Jones does not make it here and now his next gig will be Jenny Craig.

Why is this insane? If he doesn't do anything we pay him nothing, if he contributes we pay him practically nothing.

That's not insane, that's genious!

I just hope that he's used more as a DH because Cruz and Murphy have earned more time in the OF.
