Tuesday February 3rd, 2015

Former Major League outfielder Andruw Jones is seeking a return to the big leagues after spending the past two years in Japan, his agent, Scott Boras, told ESPN.com.

Jones last played in 2012 with the New York Yankees, hitting 14 home runs and driving in 34 runs. He has spent the two season with the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles.
