Braves | Jason Heyward won't be out long

Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward (appendix) is expected to be healed in two weeks when he's eligible to return from the disabled list. Recovery time from appendix surgery is typically two to three weeks, but other players have returned recently from the same procedure in roughly one week.

Fantasy Tip: This might be a blessing in disguise for Heyward and his owners, since he was off to such a poor start. The Braves can be cautious with him and give him some time to rest as a result. It looks as though Evan Gattis won't be playing the outfield to keep his bat in the lineup, though, so he'll continue to split playing time with Gerald Laird behind the dish.
