Jones was asked how many calls he's received about his injury.
"Not as many from the Braves as I have from the Braves media," he said. "They rang my phone off the hook this morning."
Under tournament rules, only catchers can be replaced within a round. Other injured players can be replaced between rounds but are not available to return.
Johnson said Jones will sit and either David Wright or Mark DeRosa will play third base Wednesday when the U.S. faces Canada, Italy or Venezuela to decide the winner of Group C. Ted Lilly will start that game, with right-hander Jeremy Guthrie set to follow out of the bullpen.
