covered two pretty big injury topics in today's blog over at AJC.Dave O'Brien
- Andruw Jones had x-rays on his left elbow before the game today that came back negative. So those of you hoping to see Brandon Jones get a call-up are out of luck at least until September. Andruw has just been toying with us this season. Every time he gets going, he sinks right back into a slump. Big numbers from him down the home-stretch would go a long way.
- Willy Aybar had surgery today to repair his hamate bone in his right hand. Aybar will be out 6-8 weeks and the team does still expect to bring him back next year. This is a very similar injury to the one that kept him out of spring training. Aybar went through some very tough personal issues this season but hopefully he can come back healthy next year and earn a job with the team.
