Braves put G. Anderson on DL; Call up B. Jones

Finally!

The Atlanta Braves placed outfielder Garret Anderson on the 15-day disabled list Friday because of a strained left thigh.

Anderson had to leave an 11-1 win over Pittsburgh last Sunday with tightness in his thigh. He missed the next three games.

The move was retroactive to April 20. Anderson was batting .200 without an RBI in 10 games.

The Braves called up outfielder Brandon Jones from Triple-A Gwinnett, where he was batting .308 in 14 games. He played in 41 games for the Braves last season, batting .267 with one home run and 17 RBIs.

Now, let's hope that (A) Bobby gets Jones in the lineup somehow, and (B) the kid hits like he deserves to stay.
