Chipper out of lineup against Toronto

Chipper Jones was out of lineup for Friday night's series opener against Toronto after injuring his right big toe during Thursday night's loss against Colorado.

The third baseman said he hurt the toe when he "short-stepped" first base while running out a sixth-inning groundout. He left the game after the pain worsened in the seventh inning.

The oft-injured 37-year-old said late Thursday that he'd be "day-to-day" and that some swelling had already formed in the joint within an hour of the incident. He got his 1,000th hit at Turner Field earlier in the game.

Martin Prado was inserted in the lineup at third base for tonight's game against the Blue Jays, which would be the eighth start that Jones has missed this season, including seven for injuries including a bruised hand and a sore elbow.

Also on Friday, the Braves made a bullpen swap by sending right-hander James Parr to Class AAA Gwinnett and recalled right-hander Manny Acosta from Gwinnett. Parr gave up a grand slam to Todd Helton on Thursday after inheriting a bases-loaded situation from rookie starter Kris Medlen.

Acosta, 28, was 1-3 with a 2.86 ERA in 15 appearances for Gwinnett, with 18 strikeouts and a .220 opponents' average in 22 innings.

Parr pitched 12 scoreless innings in his first two starts for the Braves in 2008. In 11 games (three starts) since then, he has a 7.77 ERA and .355 opponents' average, with 39 hits (five homers), 21 earned runs and 11 walks allowed in 24-1/3 innings.
