Does anyone know any rumors that he's placed on waivers and some team picked him up ????

This is all I've found

From ESPN:
ESPN's Buster Olney says Andruw Jones has been claimed on waivers, though he doesn't know by which team.

This whole thing isn't much of a story. Jones can be traded to whichever team claimed him, but the only players the Braves could get in return are prospects not on the 40-man roster or players who fall to them on waivers. There's almost no way that they'd get the kind of talent they want in return for Jones in a waiver deal.

They are just making drama out of something that is not there.

Jones placed on waivers, like the rest of the league. A team wins claiming him. ESPN thinks Jones' current contract position makes him likely to be talked about trading to the team instead of withdrawn from waivers. But it's just a bunch of speculation.

If the Braves were serious about trading Andruw Jones it would have been before July 31st. They could re-explore that option in the off-season but I think there is little to no chance that Jones will be moved prior to Aug 31st.
