The Twins were interested in signing Jones to a one-year deal, but his Agent Dan Lozano said he has many multi-year offers on the table. The front-runner seems to be the Kansas City Royals, who offered the slugger a three-year, 15 million dollar deal, although Jones has said he would prefer to play for a contender. If Jones does latch on with another team, the Twins should receive a draft pick from that team.
Jones has been with the Twins since breaking into the Major League in 1999. The 30-year old was on pace to put up career-highs in power numbers in 2005, but an injury cut his season short. He was one of the main reasons why the Twins' won back-to-back-to-back American League Central Titles from 2002-2004.
