Former Yankees Update: Garrett Jones

The New York Yankees had high hopes for their bench in 2015 when they showcased Brendan Ryan, John Ryan Murphy, Chris Young and Garrett Jones. Ryan was expected to play all over the infield, Murphy was the backup catcher, Young was the 4th outfielder and Jones was expected to play right field and back up Mark Teixeira at first base. Ryan is gone, he was traded along with Adam Warren to the Cubs for Starlin Castro, and so is Murphy after being traded to the Minnesota Twins for Aaron Hicks. Chris Young is gone and replaced by Hicks and now calls the Boston Red Sox his home team for the next two seasons and this week we learned the fate of Garrett Jones. He’s going west…. Real west.

Garrett Jones, who was designated for assignment twice by the New York Yankees last season, is signing to play baseball in Japan next season with the Yomiuri Giants. Jones will earn $2.8 million next season in the Nippon professional Baseball League and can earn more via incentives, although those have not been released at this time.

I’m glad to hear that Garrett found a job and I hope Cassie enjoys Japan. Be well Jones’s!
