Braves activate Chipper Jones

Postby WebHamster » Sat May 08, 2004 7:00 pm

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Atlanta Braves leftfielder Chipper Jones was activated from the 15-day disabled list prior to Saturday's game against the Houston Astros at Turner Field.

Jones, who has been sidelined since April 19, missed 16 games because of a strained right hamstring. It was Jones' first trip to the DL since 1996.

The 31-year-old Jones suffered the injury in a 3-2 win against the Florida Marlins on April 18 while chasing down a fly ball in left-center field.

A former National League MVP, Jones is batting .314 with three homers and six RBI this season.

To make room for Jones on the 25-man roster, the Braves designated outfielder Damon Hollins for assignment. Hollins batted .364 with five RBI in seven games for Atlanta.

The Braves also recalled infielder Wilson Betemit from Triple-A Richmond. The one-time hot prospect in the Braves' organization was batting just .224 in 23 games at Richmond.

Because of the addition of Betemit to the roster, the Braves will need to make another roster move before Saturday's game.
