Andruw Jones Is Hoping For A Comeback

Instead of rattling off all the things that have happened in baseball since Andruw Jones’ last big league at bat in October 2012…it would be easier to just cut to the chase.

An Old (But Topical) Conversation with Andruw Jones

This interview was conducted in September 2012, but that doesn’t matter. The topic was his career, and Andruw Jones was weeks away from his final game.

An MLB comeback could be in the cards for Andruw Jones

Could Andruw Jones finally be making his way back to Major League Baseball after two seasons in Japan? According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, there’s reason to believe that Jones will be at least going to Spring Training with an MLB club.
