NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Dodgers reached a tentative agreement late Wednesday night with free-agent center fielder Andruw Jones, a source with knowledge of the situation said on the condition of anonymity. Jones, a 10-time Gold Glove winner who was once one of the game’s most feared hitters, will receive a two-year, $36 million contract if he passes a physical and agrees to change the spelling of his first name so that the staff doesn’t have to keep clicking on the “Ignore Once” button every time they type his name into a document or have to explain to someone, “No, I didn’t accidentally write it wrong, that’s the way that he spells it and no, I don’t know why.”
