OK, so Chipper won't announce anything today after all

7 Comments

Mark Bowman of MLB.com just tweeted that, contrary to earlier reports, Chipper Jones has changed his mind about making any announcements today.  Guess that was some meeting with Cox and Wren.

So to recap: Chipper is thinking about maybe retiring this season but thinks it may be premature to announce what he likely just discussed with the team and could change his mind. Or not. Or the reverse.

What?

Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Giants pitcher Dereck Rodriguez has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a Grade 1 strain of his hamstring. Rodriguez apparently suffered the injury during Tuesday’s altercation with the Dodgers which featured Yasiel Puig and Nick Hundley.

Rodriguez, 22, has been having an outstanding rookie season, posting a 2.25 ERA with a 65/19 K/BB ratio in 80 innings across 12 starts and two relief appearances.

Casey Kelly will start in Rodriguez’s place against the Reds on Friday.
