Bits: Chipper returns to Braves lineup

Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones came off the disabled list Sunday and went hitless in three at-bats. Jones, seemingly recovered from a calf injury and back hitting third in the lineup, saw his batting average slip below .300, but he's a reasonable option for mixed leagues considering he brings modest power and batting average. Just be prepared for the next malady.
The Braves called up right-hander Julio Teheran to replace Tim Hudson (ankle) as Sunday's starter, and for four innings things went well. Then, the Toronto Blue Jays scored six times in the fifth inning. Teheran was charged with four runs, and he's back at Triple-A Gwinnett, where his ERA is 3.15. Teheran, 21, is a decent stash for NL-only and dynasty formats, and will be heard from. Meanwhile, Hudson is expected to start Wednesday.
