Atlanta's offense struggled mightily in the opening series against the New York Mets and badly need Chipper's bat back in the lineup. Once Chipper is activated all signs point to outfielder Jose Constanza being sent down to Triple A Gwinnett.
Jones has been out of action since the middle of March after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee to repair a torn meniscus.
