Atlanta Braves fans have nothing to worry about with Chipper Jones, Fredi Gonzalez insists, even though he was scratched from Monday's lineup with a sore leg.

Gonzalez said that Jones is just being eased into things during Spring Training, especially with the fact that he will turn 40 soon. The whole thing is just the territory that comes with being an aging baseball player.

Meanwhile, Freddie Freeman is on track for two at-bats in Tuesday's game against the Washington Nationals, just a week after dislocating his kneecap.

In batting practice, Freeman hit a monster home run to right that broke a car window at Champion Stadium. He's probably fine.
