The Atlanta Braves said Wednesday that the MRI on Jones' right shoulder a day earlier showed acute tendinitis, but the overall structure is normal.

The Braves' orthopedist has prescribed therapy for the 36-year-old third baseman, followed by a strength program.

Jones won the NL batting title with a .364 average. He had 22 home runs and 75 RBIs but played in only 128 games and was limited to pinch-hitting in the final week of the season.
