Adam Jones considering contract to play in Japan for Orix Buffaloes

Adam Jones

Adam Jones may be taking his game international.

The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reported this week that Jones is talking with the Orix Buffaloes about signing a multi-year deal to play in Japan. The agreement could come this week.

Jones is 34 and batted just .260 with 16 home runs and a .727 OPS last season with Arizona. That came after spending the previous 11 seasons with the Baltimore Orioles, for whom he was a 5-time All-Star.

Jones had a hard time finding a job but received $3 million from Arizona last season. The market may be even harder on him this offseason, which is probably why he is considering Japan.
