"It's pretty sore this morning," Jones said on Sunday. "We'll see when it gets better." He's obviously a risky play for the upcoming week. The Braves will have the benefit of the DH over the weekend and for three games the week after in Texas, so Jones owners might have caught a break here.
...the injury to his quadriceps is the bigger concern. He missed Sunday's game and will likely be an injury risk the rest of the way. At his age, the risk of missing 2-4 weeks with an injury seems pretty high.
.News: Jones (quad) walked as a pinch hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs. Jones took batting practice before the game and hopes to return Wednesday, the team's official web site reports. [-]
Impact: We still think the Braves keep him out of the lineup the next two days and use him as the DH on Friday, but he's showing progress from a small tear in his right quadriceps
Chipper comes in to pinch hit: With Chipper Jones, batting .420, missing his second straight start with a small tear in his right quadriceps, the Braves put Omar Infante into the lineup at third against the Cubs Tuesday. He had a leadoff triple in the second but was stranded and later added an RBI single.
Quadriceps - Questionable for June 11-12 at Chicago Cubs
(Updated - 6/10/08)
Jones did pinch-hit in the seventh and drew a two-out walk to finish Lilly. Jones is obviously an injury risk start in all formats, but he might well only miss a few starts. If you have another, healthier option at 3B, you should probably start them this week and let Jones heal up.
