Injured Braves third baseman Chipper Jones completed his rehab stint with the Rome Braves and could be activated before Sunday's game. Braves beat writer David O'Brien reports that Jones is in the clubhouse back in Atlanta as the Braves prepare for Sunday's series finale with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Jones has been sidelined with a leg contusion after taking a line drive right above the ankle during Atlanta's series in Tampa Bay at the end of May. Atlanta made a roster move on Saturday demoting back up catcher J.C. Boscan to Triple A Gwinnett and promoting top prospect Julio Teheran for a spot start in place of Tim Hudson.
Atlanta could put off Jones' activation for another day and return Teheran to the minors to make room on the roster.
