The greatest third baseman in Atlanta Braves history is considering his options.

According to a report on, Jones met with team management and he is reportedly leaning towards retirement at the conclusion of the season.

The veteran third baseman has decided to wait a few more days before making a public announcement. According to the report Jones said he will have something to announce, but he was not prepared to do so today and hopes to have something by the end of the homestand. 


Jones said last year that if his production did not improve, he might walk away from the rest of his contract.

According to, Jones' agent B.B. Abbott confirmed that the six-time All-Star third baseman is indeed considering retirment, but will not leave during the middle of the season.
