 CHICAGO (AP) -Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones is going on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised right hand.
Manager Bobby Cox said the team will place Jones on the disabled list on Saturday. He has been experiencing pain in both hands since a baserunning collision on May 11 and had missed seven straight games before the Braves opened a weekend series against the Chicago Cubs on Friday. Jones received a cortisone shot following the game on May 23 but noticed no improvement.
``I don't think it's gotten any better at all,'' he said. ``It was getting worse when I was playing. It hasn't gotten much better since.''
Jones, who is batting .300 with 12 homers and 27 RBIs, said the pain has spread from the base of his thumbs into both palms and wrists.
``The central part of the pain is in the base of the thumb,'' he said. ``When I swing, my wrists hurt, my thumbs hurt. It's just impossible to use my hands at all.''
With the pain spreading, Jones thinks the injury might be more severe than he first thought.
``I think there's something else. I don't know what,'' he said. ``I've got pain in both hamate bones in the outside of the palms. I've got pain radiating into my wrists.''
Jones believes he might have damaged a ligament in his wrist, making it ``very uncomfortable to swing the bat,'' he said.
Jones will be inactive for the next week and refused to give a timetable for his return.
``I'm not going to make any predictions,'' he said. ``I would have certainly thought that I'd be past this and pain free.''
The Braves will purchase the contract of infielder Yunel Escobar from Triple-A Richmond on Saturday.
