The AJC’s David O’Brien reports that Chipper Jones will begin playing in games with low Single-A Rome on Thursday in anticipation of a Monday return to Atlanta’s lineup.

Jones, who underwent knee surgery to repair a cartilage tear just nine days ago, is likely to DH on Thursday and Friday before playing some third base over the weekend.  He’s eligible to come off the DL on Sunday, but the Braves will likely wait until they begin a homestand Monday to activate him.

In the meantime, the recently activated Martin Prado will continue to start at third base for the Braves.  He’ll move back to left field after Chipper returns.
