Chipper, Escobar out of the lineup against Blue Jays

Chipper Jones and Yunel Escobar are out of the Braves lineup again.

Neither will start Sunday?s game against Toronto.

Jones is still suffering from an injured right toe that will cost him his third straight game.

"I'm still a day or two away," Jones said before the game. "I can hit, but it's still too painful to move on defense."

Martin Prado will replace Jones at third base and bat fifth.

Escobar will miss his second straight game with a strained hip flexor. When asked if could play prior to the game, Escobar shook his head no.

Diory Hernandez will start at shortstop for Escobar and bat seventh. He made his first major league start Saturday and recorded nine assists. It was just the fourth time in Atlanta Braves history that a rookie had that many assists in game. The last major leaguer to have nine or more assists in his first start was Houston?s Chris Burke in 2004.
