Jones back in the lineup after missing two starts with shoulder soreness
Garrett Jones was back in the lineup on Tuesday’s game against the Cardinals.
Jones missed two starts with right shoulder soreness he sustained from a diving attempt at first-base.
“He said he feels pretty normal,” reported manager John Russell. “We’re lucky that it probably was just a bruise more than anything. We don’t have to worry about him diving awkwardly.”
Russell said he would scatter a few days off for Garrett the remainder of the season to keep his shoulder healthy. Jones is batting just .181 in his past 46 games.
“I want to get back in there and help the team finish strong,” Jones said.
