As first reported by MLB.com’s Mark Bowman, the Braves have activated third baseman Chipper Jones from the disabled list and are batting him third in Sunday’s series finale against the Blue Jays.

Outfielder Jose Constanza was optioned back to Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding roster move.

Jones missed just under three weeks with a left calf injury — described as a bruise. He returns to a cool .307/.377/.485 slash line, five home runs and 24 RBI.

Atlanta enters play Sunday with a 34-25 record, good enough for second place in the National League East.

The Red Sox just got third baseman Rafael Devers back from the disabled list last week. Now he’s going back on, retroactive to yesterday, with a left hamstring strain.

It’s the same injury that put him on the shelf before, and he apparently aggravated it. In fact, it’s his third trip to the disabled list over the last five weeks. How much time he’ll miss this time around isn’t known. In the meantime, Eduardo Nunez should see the bulk of the starts at the hot corner.

Devers is hitting .242/.298/.422 with 16 homers and 55 RBI on the year.
