Jones was set to bat third Saturday night, but Brooks Conrad was inserted into the second spot in the lineup about a half-hour before gametime. Right fielder Jason Heyward moved from second to third in the order.
Jones is batting just .228 this season with three homers and 22 RBIs. He went 0 for 4 and struck out twice in Friday's game. The 38-year-old Jones missed five games last week with inflammation in his right ring finger.
The Braves didn't give a reason for the late switch at first, but manager Bobby Cox said after the game Jones was having trouble with the finger again. His status is day to day.
