The surgical procedure removed 120 ccs of fluid from Jones left leg. Jones was told by doctors that the leg would continue to be an issue into September if he chose not to undergo the procedure. Afterward, Jones said he is feeling much better, via Chirs Vivlamore:
"I feel so much better now," Jones said. "It was throbbing. It let me know with everything that I did. Now, we've relieved a lot of the pressure down there and I can't feel my heartbeat [in the ankle] anymore.
Jones initially suffered the injury on May 18, when he was hit in the leg by a ball during a game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Prior to the injury, Jones was hitting .307 with five home runs and 24 RBI in 29 games.
