Braves put OF Anderson on DL, call up OF Jones

By  | 

CINCINNATI (AP) - 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.
