Andruw Rudolf Jones (born April 23, 1977) is a Major League Baseball right fielder for the New York Yankees.

During his first two years with the Atlanta Braves, Jones most often appeared as a right fielder. However, from 1998 until 2009, he played almost exclusively in center field. Aside from 1996, when he appeared in just 32 games after being called up from the minors, Jones appeared in 150 or more games in each year of his career up to 2008, when he appeared in only 75 games.

Jones has been a noted defensive specialist, and won the Rawlings Gold Glove Award for outfielders every year from 1998 through 2007.

Jones has appeared in the All-Star Game five times, and he won both the Hank Aaron Award and a Silver Slugger Award for outfielders in 2005. In 2002, he was the inaugural National League All-Star Final Vote winner.
