Braves place Chipper Jones on DL with bruised leg


ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Braves have placed Chipper Jones on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised left leg and recalled catcher J.C. Boscan from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Boscan is starting Saturday's game against the Washington Nationals.

Jones has missed seven straight starts. He still isn't ready to play after hurting his leg May 18.

The Braves have a pressing need at catcher after backup David Ross left Friday night's game with a right groin strain. Brian McCann took over for Ross after missing the previous three games with an illness.

The 40-year-old Jones, in his final season, is hitting .307 with five homers and 24 RBIs.

The 32-year-old Boscan was hitting .192 with two homers at Gwinnett. He made brief appearances with Atlanta in 2010 and 2011.
