The Yankees still haven't landed the pitcher they need to round out their rotation, but they have picked up another bat for the 2011 season.

The Bronx Bombers came to terms on Thursday with White Sox outfielder Andruw Jones on a one-year, $2 million deal, reports ESPN.

Jones could pick up another $1.2 million in the deal in incentives that are pegged to plate appearances.

Jones, 34, has lost a step or two over his 15 seasons, but he was once one of the best all-around outfielders in the game. During his time playing for the Atlanta Braves, he once belted 51 homers in a season and won ten consecutive Gold Gloves.

Yankees fans may also remember Jones for blasting tho home runs in Game One of the 1996 World Series, making him the second visiting player to hit two homers in an October Classic game at Yankee Stadium.
