JAPAN– A former Baltimore Orioles star will look to continue his career overseas.

OF Adam Jones has signed with the Orix Buffaloes in Japan.

Jones, 34, received a two-year deal worth $8 million, according to reports.

The deal also reportedly comes with a club option for 2022.

Last season, Jones suited up for the Arizona Diamondbacks, after struggling to find a home in free agency at the conclusion of his 11-year run with the Orioles.

In 137 games, Jones hit .260 with 16 HR’s and 67 RBI’s while playing right field for the D-Backs.

Now, he will look to maximize his value in Japan.
