Chop Chatter for 8/4

on .

  • Andruw Jones will miss tonight's game against the Rockies and possibly be held out of Sunday's game as well due to Soreness in his elbow. Jones has shown noticeable discomfort at the plate lately, especially reaching for pitches that are away. Jones doesn't know when he hurt the elbow but said it has been in pain for a couple days now. Last night he had the elbow wrapped and after the game, got a cortisone shot. Willie Harris will play center in his absence. With both Willie Harris and Yunel Escobar in the lineup, that leaves the team with a total of one player batting under .299 in the lineup which is Brian McCann.
  • The Diamondbacks claimed former A's starter Joe Kennedy off waivers today. You might be wondering why this is Braves news. Well, the Diamondbacks are 3.5 games better than the Braves right now in the standings, so why on earth did the Braves not claim him? He isn't all that good a starter, he has more walks, than strikeouts, and has been miserable lately. But do we have a better option for the fifth spot? He keeps the team in games, can go five innings, gets a lot of ground balls, and limits home runs. We only have four starters that can do even the first thing. He costs a whopping $880,000 for the rest of the season with no commitment beyond this season. This just doesn't add up for me.
  • Alex Rodriguez hit his 500th home run today. Yet again, this seems like an odd thing to have in a post about the Braves. The starter who he hit it off in the first inning however was Kyle Davies who, was pitching in his Royals debut. Davies lasted three innings, allowing five runs on six hits, three walks, and the one home run. There is a good start to your Royals career.
