Chipper Jones joins Braves broadcast this week

Three former Braves players will serve as guest analysts on Fox Sports Southeast before and after five game broadcasts, starting Tuesday.

Hall of Fame third baseman Chipper Jones — along with former slugger Ryan Klesko and pitcher Kris Medlen — will provide his view of the Braves when they face the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants. 

Jones retired from the Braves in 2012. He was inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame in 2018. Klesko, nicknamed “Thumper,” played in Atlanta from 1992-99. He was a regular on Braves broadcasts starting in 2013. Medlen was drafted by the Braves in 2006, pitching in Atlanta through 2014. He retired in 2018.

The Braves just concluded a 20-game stretch in 20 days. They went 10-10, an acceptable result given the slate and 6-4 finish.
