Hamstring injury shelves Chipper again
Jones was in manager Bobby Cox's original lineup for Sunday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Jones was replaced in the lineup by Omar Infante after he tested the hamstring by running in the outfield during batting practice.
The Braves have an off day Monday, giving Jones another day to heal. He originally hurt the hamstring Thursday.
Jones says the hamstring is more sore than it was Saturday, when he didn't start but lined out to left field as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning.
Jones says he is available to pinch hit again on Sunday.
