Dodgers Vs. Braves Lineups: Chipper Jones Gets Day Off, Brian McCann Returns

The Braves' lineup against the Dodgers on Sunday has been announced by the team. Veteran Chipper Jones gets the day off in this one, while catcher Brian McCann returns to the lineup still suffering from his lingering shoulder injury. McCann was reportedly unhappy with being held from the lineup on Saturday, the second straight game he missed, but he'll definitely play Sunday.

This is the game that will decide the series between the two teams. Mike Minor will take the mound for the Braves.
