Braves Vs. Padres Starting Lineups: Chipper Jones Returns

The Atlanta Braves open up a three-game series in San Diego against the Padres on Monday night, as Fredi Gonzalez' club looks to gain ground on the idle Washington Nationals in the National League East race.

Both Gonzalez and Bud Black have released the starting lineups for Monday night's game.

Atlanta Braves

CF Michael Bourn
LF Martin Prado
RF Jason Heyward
3B Chipper Jones
1B Freddie Freeman

2B Dan Uggla

San Diego Padres

Notably, Chipper Jones returns to the starting lineup for the first time since Friday night, as his farewell tour continues across the league.

Casey Kelly, meanwhile, will be making his debut with the Padres on Monday night. Kelly was the jewel of the Adrian Gonzalez trade, which sent Gonzalez from San Diego to Boston.
