SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Andruw Jones will remain with the Texas
Rangers at least through the weekend.
Jones and the team agreed Friday to extend by three days a deadline in his minor league contract that would allow the 10-time Gold Glove center fielder and five-time All-Star to become a free agent if the Rangers don't put him on the big league roster. The new deadline is Monday.
Most of the Rangers regulars were already gone for a game at Tucson on Friday morning when Jones dressed in the clubhouse to prepare for workouts at the spring training complex.
Jones hadn't played in a Cactus League game in a week but expected to play for the Rangers on Saturday. He is a former player for the Atlanta Braves.
