Chipper Jones had successful arthroscopic knee surgery Monday to repair the torn miniscus in his left knee. He hopes to return to the Atlanta Braves by their opener against the Milwaukee Brewers on April 13.
"Historically, Chipper has taken 16-18 days to get back from these injuries," general manager Frank Wren said on Saturday to mlb.com. "So the thought is that he could very well be ready for the home opener. That's kind of a best-case scenario. But it should be on or around the home opener."
Jones, who announced last week that he will retire after this season, had the operation performed by Dr. Marvin Royster in Atlanta.Tags: Atlanta, Atlanta Braves, Chipper Jones, MLB
