Chipper Jones, 3B ATL
News: 3B Chipper Jones wasn't in the lineup for the second consecutive game Monday night, still bothered by a strained muscle in his left side. Jones doesn't want to re-aggravate the injury, as he did last weekend in Boston, especially since the Braves are scheduled to face left-handers in the first two games of this series. The switch-hitter feels more pain when he bats from the right side.
Analysis: Jones might be able to play Wednesday, when the Mets send RHP Victor Zambrano to the mound for the final game of the series. "We'll see on getaway day if he can play or not," manager Bobby Cox said. "He might be able to pinch-hit. We'll wait and see."
