Andruw Wants To Return To Atlanta

Jennifer Brett of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution talked to Dodgers outfielder Andruw Jones, who says he’d like to come back and play for the Braves again.  It’s unclear from his quote whether Jones is campaigning to return to the Braves in 2009 or after that.  It takes two to tango, however, and the Braves are probably looking for an outfielder who is not coming off a historically bad season.  The Braves didn’t even offer Jones arbitration last year.

A few weeks ago, Jones said, "I’m an everyday guy or I need to move out."  However, he hasn’t formally requested a trade from the Dodgers.  The 31 year-old is set to earn a $15MM salary next year.  He’ll also receive $2.1MM of his signing bonus in ’09 and another $5MM in ’10.
