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.
