Michael Bourn said his left thumb was still quite sore when he awoke on Sunday. The Braves do not believe there is anything structurally wrong. But they will send Bourn to see hand specialist Dr. Gary Lourie on Monday.
After getting a chance to rest on Sunday and again during Monday's off-day, Bourn hopes to return to the Braves' lineup on Tuesday. The All-Star center fielder jammed his thumb with a headfirst slide into second base during the fourth inning of Saturday's win over the Phillies.
Jones was out of the lineup for the last scheduled game of his career in Philadelphia on Sunday. Jones' two-hit performance in Saturday's win over the Phillies moved him past Lou Gehrig and into 57th place on the all-time hits list. He needs one hit to tie Roberto Alomar for fifth place on the all-time list for switch-hitters.
