Braves Lose Chipper Jones and Tim Hudson to Injuries

Posted by Ace Staff on July 22nd, 2008 in Sports

Wednesday night was not so lucky for the Atlanta Braves. Former .400 average hopeful Chipper Jones strained his left hamstring trying to run out a grounder in the 4th inning. Just two innings later, Tim Hudson left with right elbow tightness after 6 shutout innings.  Hudson has tossed only 68 total pitches.  Hudson said the large number of splitters he threw may have led to the tightness.

“I don’t foresee it being that big of a deal,” Hudson said. “It doesn’t feel too bad. It just feels like tight muscles.”

Jones will miss a few games, but will most likely not be going on the DL. The Braves will miss Chipper’s offensive production as they open up a series against the NL East co-leading Philadelphia Phillies.
