Former Braves player arrested on battery charge

Jail records show that former Atlanta Braves star center fielder Andruw Jones is free on bond after being arrested in suburban Atlanta on a battery charge. Gwinnett County Detention Center records say Jones was booked into the county jail around 3:45 a.m. Tuesday and had been released on $2,400 bond by 11 a.m. No one was available to give details about his Christmas Day arrest. Once one of the premier players in the big leagues, Jones broke into the majors with the Atlanta Braves in 1996 and won 10 consecutive Gold Gloves from 1998-07 as their center fielder. He has 434 career home runs over 17 seasons in the majors. – AP

Newsmakers

Tagged The New England Patriots have reportedly placed the franchise tag on All-Pro offensive lineman Logan Mankins, who held out the first seven games of the 2010 season in a contract fight. Mankins is the first NFL player hit with the franchise tag for the 2011 season. Mankins would earn about $10 million under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement that expires on March 4. It is not clear whether the franchise tag will be part of the new deal. The NFL players union has called the franchise tag “worthless.” Postponed Major league home run leader Jose Bautista and the Toronto Blue Jays have pushed back their salary arbitration in hopes of reaching an agreement. The sides had been set to argue their cases Monday, with Bautista asking for $10.5 million rather than the team’s offer of $7.6 million. Bautista hit .260 with 54 homers and 124 RBIs last season, when he made $2.4 million.
