From Ken Davidoff (Newsday):
Spoke with Brian Cashman a few minutes ago, and he confirmed Jon Heyman’s story that the Yankees had offered Andruw Jones a minor-league contract to compete with Melky Cabrera and Brett Gardner _ or GarBrera, as a guy named Chip on my Live Chat today called the pair _ for the starting centerfield job. Jones’ agent Scott Boras turned down the offer, Cashman said.
If Jones and Boras can’t find a major-league contract _ and certainly, that seems like a longshot _ then the Yankees could get back into the mix for Andruw.
It’s a longshot, but Jones could still end up with the team. If it’s to battle with Melky and Brett Gardner for the starting CF job, I have no problem with that. As long as there is no guaranteed deal…
