As we discussed a couple of days ago , things have been absolutely miserable for Braves legend Chipper Jones, who led baseball in batting two years ago but currently has a .228 average.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says Jones is meeting with team executives today and a meeting with reporters is scheduled to follow. Sources say Jones will announce that he's retiring at the end of the season.
The third baseman, a six-time All-Star and 1999 National League MVP, has 429 career home runs, 39th all-time. But he's hit just three this season and, at age 38, seems ready to acknowledge that time has caught up with him.
UPDATE: It looks like Jones has decided not to formally address the media and make an announcement.
