Chipper Jones‘ final season isn’t getting off to the most promising start.
According to Mark Bowman of MLB.com, Jones will undergo arthroscopic surgery Monday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. Interestingly, Bowman hears that the 39-year-old third baseman suffered the injury running in the outfield Thursday just before he announced his intention to retire following the 2012 season.
Jones had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee last year and only missed around three weeks, so the hope is that he’ll be ready for the home opener against the Brewers on April 13.
