Chipper JonesThe small meniscus tear in the right knee of Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones is “bugging” him, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, but he’s hoping to avoid surgery or a stint on the disabled list.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez sat him Wednesday so that he would have two days off in a row, the paper notes, since Atlanta isn’t playing Thursday.

“If you’ve got torn meniscus, you’ve got torn meniscus,” Jones said, the paper reports. “There’s not a lot you can do about it. Just have to stay on top of it [with treatment]. If I have to go on the DL for it, I’ll probably get the surgery. But if I can avoid it, I’d rather not.”

Surgery would cause the 39-year-old to miss three weeks. He is batting .252 with seven homers.
