RALEIGH, North Carolina (Reuters) - Atlanta Braves key player Chipper Jones has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a foot injury and may face surgery that would sideline him for weeks, the team said.
Additional tests were scheduled for Tuesday to determine the extent of the injury to his left foot.
"We'll see what that turns up and what we need to do to fix whatever is wrong," Jones, 33, told MLB.com.
The Braves's third baseman injured the foot on April 24 and aggravated the problem in Sunday's game at Pittsburgh.
A meeting with team doctor Joe Chandler on Monday showed Jones appeared to have some ligament damage between the second and third toes.
