Braves | No plans to move Jason Heyward up in lineup

Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez has no plans to move OF Jason Heyward up in the lineup from the seventh spot. "He's been fine (where he is), and you kind of want to split up the left-handers," Gonzalez said. "But he's done fine there. Hitting sixth, seventh, fifth the other day against a right-hander." Heyward was 10-for-25 (.400) with six extra-base hits during a seven-game hitting streak entering Friday, June 22. Gonzalez has been impressed with Heyward's aggressiveness when he gets in favorable hitting counts.
