Braves | Jason Heyward lands on DL

The Atlanta Braves placed OF Jason Heyward (appendix) on the 15-day disabled list after he underwent an appendectomy Monday, April 22, and recalled SS Tyler Pastornicky from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move. The team has no timetable on when Heyward might return.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward was struggling with the bat, hitting only .121 to start the year, so this gives Atlanta a perfect time to rest him up. He probably won't miss more than the two weeks, though, since appendectomy procedures have become less invasive in recent years.
