MIAMI -- Team USA has lost its second player in two days.

Chipper Jones was scratched from the lineup for tonight's game with the Netherlands, after aggravating an oblique muscle he originally strained during the first round of the World Baseball Classic in Toronto. Officials said Jones will leave the U.S. team and return to the Braves.

Jones said he doesn't believe the injury is serious.

"It's just a strain of the oblique," he said. "If you can take care of it now, I certainly don't see there being any problems in going forward [for opening day]. But it's something that's really bugging me and progressively getting worse."

Under the rules of the WBC, Team USA can't replace Jones on the roster during this round. Derek Jeter replaced Jones as the Team USA DH.

Saturday, Team USA lost Dustin Pedroia, also to an oblique strain.
