ATLANTA (AP) - Braves third baseman Chipper Jones is being held out of the lineup against Milwaukee after he sustained a mild left hamstring strain the previous night.
Jones says the injury is not serious. His status for Sunday’s game is uncertain.
The Braves also are without All-Star catcher Brian McCann and right fielder Jason Heyward, who were rested against Brewers left-hander Chris Narveson. Heyward crashed into the right-field wall on Thursday night but remained in the game and started Friday.
Omar Infante is starting in right field and David Ross is behind the plate for Atlanta.
