I've sat Andruw the last 2 days due to his injury (have been playing Matos in his absence). Is he still slated to return on Tuesday? Anyone hear anything different?

Aug. 4:
Andruw Jones and his strained rib-cage muscle was out of the lineup again yesterday, the Braves are hoping that he will be ready for tomorrow's game. Bobby Cox said that he will wait and see how Jones feels after today's off day. Jones is still day-to-day.

Braves: Jones may return Tuesday

Braves outfielder Andruw Jones, who aggravated a rib-cage muscle strain in Friday’s game, is expected to remain out of the linup until Tuesday. “I could play [today], but I don’t know if Bobby [Cox] will let me,” Jones told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “It’s not going to heal completely until after the season.”

Despite the ongoing injury, Jones has been hitting the ball well of late. Still, Cox has no need to rush Andruw back into the lineup. Expect him to get an extra off day or two the rest of the way as the Braves try to keep Jones healthy for the postseason.

This is what I've found. ;-)
