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?

On Monday, the Pirates announced the club suspended reliever Keone Kela two games for an unspecified contract violation. Kela will begin serving the suspension tonight.

Kela, 26, went on the injured list in early May with a right shoulder injury. He was on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis for the last week and a half. Prior to the injury, Kela posted a 4.63 ERA with an 11/4 K/BB ratio in 11 2/3 innings.

After sitting out Monday and Tuesday, Kela can rejoin the Pirates on Wednesday in the middle of their four-game home series against the Cardinals.
