Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones says he expects to come off the disabled list when he’s eligible on Tuesday.
Jones and a number of Braves took early batting practice Monday before the start of their three-game series against the Houston Astros. Jones took more than 100 swings and also took ground balls in the almost one-hour workout.
Jones, who turns 40 later this month, opened the season on the DL following surgery March 26 to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.
