Jacques Jones released by Tigers

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.
