Chipper Jones to Undergo Knee Surgery

Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, who is set to retire after the 2012 season, will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery. The 39-year-old tore his meniscus on Thursday during a team stretch, according to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

He will begin the year on the 15-day DL, though O'Brien tweets that Atlanta "can use up to 9 days" of the stint during Spring Training.
