Braves activate Chipper Jones

The Atlanta Braves have activated third baseman Chipper Jones from the 15-day disabled list.

Jones hadn't appeared in a game since May 23 due to a leg injury. The veteran heads into Sunday's action hitting .307 with five homers and 24 RBI in 29 games this season.

To make room for Jones, the Braves optioned outfielder Jose Constanza to Triple-A Gwinnett. He batted .250 in 12 contests for Atlanta.

The Braves also optioned catcher J.C. Boscan to Gwinnett and recalled pitcher Julio Teheran, who will start Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.
