ATLANTA (AP) -- Chipper Jones has been activated from the 15-day disabled list and is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Braves optioned outfielder Jose Constanza to Triple-A Gwinnett.

As expected, the Braves also called up right-hander Julio Teheran from Gwinnett to start Sunday's game and optioned backup catcher J.C. Boscan to Gwinnett.

Jones missed 14 games after he was placed on the disabled list on May 26 with a left calf contusion. He played two games with Class A Rome in a brief injury rehabilitation stint before returning to Atlanta.

Constanza hit .250 in 12 games with Atlanta, including seven starts in left field.
