Per MLB Trade Rumors, Jones has been released by the Tigers. He'll be replaced on the active roster by minor leaguer Matt Joyce.
I can't help but feel bad for Jones. He was in the dog house with Cubs fans before he'd ever even picked up a bat. While it was a pretty bad signing at the time by Hendry, he seems like a good guy who didn't deserve the treatment he received.
I'm sure he'll get a job somewhere though - San Diego is the obvious choice; maybe a Dusty Baker reunion to replace the struggling Patterson.
