After winning what would be his final Gold Glove in 2007, one of the best defensive outfielders of all-time didn't have a team to call his own after being released by Atlanta.

The Braves made the difficult decision to not bring back Andruw Jones following after what was one of his worst offensive seasons of his career, hitting .222 that year. He signed a two-year, $36 million a few months later, hoping to extend what was already a strong career.

Jones then showed up to 2008 Spring Training overweight, and his offensive regression continued throughout the season, hitting .158. He would miss time with a knee injury, was later benched, and then put on the 60-day disabled list to end his short tenure with the Dodgers.

He would bounce around between the Rangers, White Sox, and Yankees to end his MLB career, before playing two seasons in the Nippon Professional Baseball League in Japan. Jones was a part of the 2013 Rakuten Eagles that won the Japan Series.
