TOKYO -- Japan's Rakuten Eagles have said that Andruw Jones will return for another season after helping the Pacific League team win the Japan Series last year.

The 36-year-old former major leaguer has agreed to a one-year deal worth $3.8 million, Japanese media reported Wednesday.

Jones batted .243 while hitting 26 home runs and a team-high 94 RBIs as the Eagles won their first Japan Series championship.

Jones, a native of Curacao, hit 434 homers over 17 MLB seasons with the Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Dodgers, Texas Rangers, Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees. The Eagles paid him $3.5 million on a one-year deal for the 2013 season.
