MIAMI (AP) - Chipper Jones was scratched from the U.S. lineup when he aggravated a strain in his right side.

Jones, who is 0-for-10 with six strikeouts in the World Baseball Classic, was replaced as the designated hitter by Derek Jeter for Sunday’s game against the Netherlands.

Jones left last Sunday’s game against Venezuela after five innings because of the injury. He missed a game Wednesday and went 0-for-3 Saturday in an 11-1 seven-inning loss to Puerto Rico that left the Americans one defeat from elimination.
