|Jason Heyward misses another start |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(9/22/14) Jason Heyward was not in the Braves' starting lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates, as Emilio Bonifacio got the start in right field. Heyward did not play at all during the Braves' three-game weekend series against the Mets due to a thumb injury. He remains day to day.
|Jason Heyward has swelling in the thumb |

(9/21/14) Braves outfielder Jason Heyward, who was out of the lineup for a third straight game Sunday against the Mets because of a thumb injury, hasn't been able to grip a bat yet because of swelling in the thumb, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He remains day to day.
|Braves duo remain out with injuries |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(9/21/14) On Sunday, for the third game in a row, both Evan Gattis (illness) and Jason Heyward (thumb) were out of the Braves' starting lineup. There is still no specific timetable for either's return, though the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Gattis took batting practice on Friday and may be available to pinch hit. They also reported that Heyward was not expected to play at all for Sunday's game against the Mets, but he could return for Monday's series opener against the Pirates.
|Evan Gattis, Jason Heyward out of lineup Saturday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/20/14) Braves catcher Evan Gattis and outfielder Jason Heyward are not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets.
Gattis hasn't played since Sept. 7 as he continues to deal with a kidney stone. Heyward injured his thumb Wednesday and hasn't played since.
|Jason Heyward out Friday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/19/14) Braves outfielder Jason Heyward was not in the team's starting lineup Friday.
Heyward injured his thumb Wednesday, and was sent for an MRI. He will not play Friday, and it's unclear how long the issue will keep him on the bench.
|If you look at Jason Heyward's final slash line from last season, you wouldn't think much of his 2013 campaign. He hit .254 with a .427 slugging percentage and .776 OPS. However, his numbers were affected by a slow start. He hit just .146 with a .243 slugging percentage and .533 OPS through the first two months (30 games) and even missed a few weeks in that span recovering from an appendectomy. But once June rolled around, Heyward started to heat up and finished the season performing well, despite missing about a month late in the season with a fractured jaw. Heyward hit .294 with a .373 on-base percentage, .495 slugging percentage, .867 OPS, 12 home runs, 18 doubles, 30 RBI and 50 runs in his final 74 games. After the sluggish start, Heyward started to produce like Fantasy owners expected. He falls into the category of being a high-risk, high-reward pick. You know he has the upside to be an elite Fantasy outfielder, but his struggles to stay consistent from start to finish plays a factor into drafting the 24-year-old slugger. He is more of an early-to-mid-round Fantasy pick depending on how much confidence you have in him.
