Braves | Jason Heyward to return and play CF
Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward (hamstring) is expected to return Monday, July 22, against the New York Mets, and the team let him know they want him to play center field until OF B.J. Upton (adductor) is ready to return from the 15-day disabled list. "(Manager Fredi Gonzalez) let me know he'd like me to play center until B.J. gets back, which is A-OK with me," Heyward said Sunday, July 21. "I just wanted to make sure that my legs were 100 percent before I go out there and attempt to do that. So, having this extra day is great for me."
Fantasy Tip: Heyward was apparently ready to return Sunday, but he was given another day just to be on the safe side. Normally it's a risky proposition to start a guy in a new scoring period before seeing him make it through a full game first, but Heyward appears to be a safe option heading into the new week.
