Jones hit .214 with 17 homers and 43 RBIs in 82 games with Texas this year while making 53 starts as the designated hitter, 12 in left field, five in right field and four at first base.
A five-time All-Star who has slumped in recent years, Jones was released by the Los Angeles Dodgers in January and signed with the Rangers the following month.
He agreed to a $36.2 million, two-year contract with Los Angeles in December 2007. Now 32, he can make an additional $1 million in performance bonuses under his agreement with the White Sox.
“This is an opportunity to add a power bat to the roster while improving our outfield depth,” White Sox general manager Kenny Williams said. “With the addition of Andruw, Mark Kotsay and Omar Vizquel, we feel our bench is taking shape to be a strong asset heading into the 2010 season.”
CHICAGO (AP)—Andruw Jones(notes) agreed Wednesday to a $500,000, one-year contract with the Chicago White Sox.
Yep, this off-season is all about building up the bench. Oh, and really old infielders. Good thinking, Kenny!
