The Rakuten Eagles plan to go forward with their one-year, $3.5 million agreement with Andruw Jones.
Jones was arrested early Christmas morning at his home near Atlanta, Georgia for allegedly dragging his wife down a staircase, grabbing her by the neck and threatening to kill her. But the Eagles aren't going to rip up the deal they've struck with him. "We received a report it was a domestic fight which escalated," Rakuten Eagles president Yozo Tachibana told Japanese media on Thursday. "Unless there is any more big surprises, we intend to go ahead as planned with his contract."
