The New York Yankees and free-agent outfielder Andruw Jones have reached an agreement, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. The deal is pending a physical. Heyman reports it will be a one-year, $2 million deal with $1.4 million up for grabs through incentives.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said two days ago the club remained in contact with Jones' agent, Scott Boras, to bring him back to the Bronx.

After a rough start in 2011, Jones finished the season strong with the Yankees hitting .291/.416/.612 in the second half. Jones, 34, got most of his playing time against southpaws and proved his worth - hitting .263/.367/.553 against lefties. The 34-year-old will have the same role in 2012, coming off the bench and getting starts in the outfield almost exclusively against lefties.
