Chipper Back Against the Mets

NEW YORK (AP) - Atlanta Braves infielder Chipper Jones is back
in the lineup after sitting out Friday's game against the New York
Mets because of back spasms.

Jones says the spasms were caused by an uncomfortable bed at the team's hotel.

Braves manager Bobby Cox says Jones is expected to be better
Sunday in their final game against the Mets before the All-Star
game.

Cox says he's hopeful rookie outfielder Jason Heyward will be
back with the team after the All-Star break.

Heyward is taking batting practice with Triple-A Gwinnett. He's
on the 15-day disabled list because of a deep bone bruise in his
left thumb.
