Mar. 30 - 7:59 pm et

Andruw Jones went 2-for-5 and homered off the Giants' Matt Cain on Monday.

A homer off a quality right-hander will have to improve Jones' chances of making the Rangers. He's hitting .288/.327/.500 with two homers in 52 at-bats. It's still a very mediocre line for an Arizona player, but it represents steady improvement.

He was 2/2 with a double and homerun today.

He has made the rangers roster, though as the 5th outfielder and perhaps righty DH. Not enough playing time to take him at the end of a draft imo unless someone gets traded in the next couple days.

just scrolled across on the bottom of the screen on the MLB netword (diamondbacks/brewers game) that the Rangers optioned Catalanotto to make room for Andruw Jones... hmmm so what does this mean now?... as the rangers are still obligated to pay Catalanotto's $4 mill + $2 mill for i believe an option for 2010... interesting...

Now we've got a real sighting...

First start of the year he was 3 for 5 with a double... second start he is 2 for 3 with a homerun and a walk.... his first 10 PAs in Texas are better than any group of 10 he had in LA.

Never really understood why Byrd got the obvious nod over him...

Byrd was legitimately a good player the last 2 years and is doing well to start this year, he deserves playing time. Murphy's PT could be toast though.

He's an average player at best, why you keep that in the line up instead of seeing what someone w/ Jones talent will give you is silly IMO.

as much as i hate how the guy performed in LA and want to make fun about his allergy acting up, i'm glad he's doing well. you never want to see a career collapse like the one he was having.
