Top stories from last week:
- Andruw Jones will be back in 2012, agreeing to a one-year contract worth $2M with another $1.4M available in incentives. The Yankees also signed Hideki Okajima to a minor league deal, but they’re still far apart in contract talks with Hiroyuki Nakajima.
- Alex Rodriguez underwent an experimental procedure on his right knee and left shoulder in Germany with blessings from the team and the commissioner’s office. Brian Cashman said it was more about “maintaining health going forward” than rehabbing past injuries.
