Outfielder Adam Jones and the Arizona Diamondbacks have finalized a $3 million, Antworten

SCOTTSDALE Josh Harrison Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — one-year contract.Jones is likely to start in center field between Steven Souza Jr. in right and David Peralta in left, pushing Ketel Marte into a utility infield and outfield role.Jones can earn $2 million in performance bonuses for plate appearances: $250,000 for 250 and each additional 50 through 600. He would get a $250,000 assignment bonus the first time he is traded.To clear a roster spot Monday, Arizona put right-hander Silvino Bracho on the 60-day injured list because of a torn elbow ligament that will require Tommy John surgery.A 33-year-old five-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove winner, Jones spent the last 11 big league seasons with the Baltimore Orioles after making his debut in 2006 with Seattle.Jones was an All-Star annually from 2012-15 and hit .265 with 29 homers and 83 RBIs in 2016. He batted .285 the following year but slipped to 26 homers and 73 RBIs, then dropped to .281 with 15 homers and 63 RBIs last year for an Orioles team that shed most veterans went a big league-worst 47-115. His streak of seven straight years of 20 or more homers ended last year.He used his contractual right to block a proposed trade to Philadelphia at the July 31 trade deadline, saying he did not want to be a corner outfielder for the Phillies.“It wasn’t the best move for Adam going into free agency, to platoon in a position I was not playing Gregory Polanco Jersey ,” he said in September.Arizona’s offseason additions include reliever Greg Holland and infielder Wilmer Flores, while the Diamondbacks traded first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and saw center fielder A.J. Pollock and left-hander Patrick Corbin leave as free agents. MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Marlins are in the midst of a rebranding campaign, and it’s unclear whether the effort will include keeping National League Most Valuable Players for a change.As of now, the Marlins are merely making cosmetic tweaks, unveiling a new logo and color scheme for Derek Jeter’s year-old ownership regime.The downtrodden franchise celebrated its new look at a red-carpet event Thursday night just as Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich was being named the NL MVP. That makes it two consecutive winners of the award traded by the Marlins last offseason, with Yelich joining 2017 MVP Giancarlo Stanton, now with the New York Yankees.The trades were part of a payroll purge and rebuilding effort under the ownership, and Jeter said he understands why the deals might make the franchise a target of derision.“I get it. It’s a complicated history,” he said. “I understand that sometimes we take the blame for what has happened here in the past. We have to prove that wrong.“We want to win. That’s the bottom line. It’s about 25 guys on our team; it’s not about one particular player. We have to take the time to build that organization.”With the focus on accumulating prospects, All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto could be the next to go Jung-ho Kang Jersey , and the Marlins are shopping him this offseason.While the payroll will likely be small again in 2019, the team can at least tout a new look. The old orange is out, and blue, black, red and gray are the new colors. The logo features a darting marlin above baseball seams and “Miami” in script.The Marlins said they chose colors found in the large variety of cultural flags flown in South Florida. They said the script was influenced by typography commonly found in Latin-American culture, with a font style and accent colors reminiscent of the 1950s Miami Marlins minor league team, as well as the Havana Sugar Kings of the same era.Jeter, the team’s CEO, had input on the designs.“We tried to capture the energy and diversity of Miami,” he said. “We listened to our fans. We took a lot of time looking around Miami. We’ve done Miami’s colors.”With the changes Francisco Cervelli Jersey , the franchise further distances itself from the unpopular former owner, Jeffrey Loria. He changed the colors and logo when the Marlins moved into a new ballpark in 2012.“We want to put our own mark on the organization,” Jeter said. “It differentiates the past with the present and the future. It was important for us to do this.”Changes at Marlins Park are also being made. The kitschy home run sculpture has been dismantled and will be replaced by a tiered standing room-only area for spectators. In another section, fans will be invited to bring musical instruments, bells, whistles and flags as a way to show pride in their native countries.“We’re hopeful when they walk into the park next year, it’s an entirely different experience for them,” Jeter said.
