Braves | Jason Heyward making progress

Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward (jaw) had the restrictive braces and bands removed from his mouth Monday, Sept. 9, and will take batting practice Friday, Sept. 13. Heyward will wear a mouth guard during baseball activities, and he's been taking swings off a tee and doing conditioning drills in the past week. "I think we were cautiously optimistic that he would get back to baseball activity sometime in September," general manager Frank Wren said. "It's progressing as we hoped, and I know progressing as he hoped, because I think everybody has the goal for him - and I know he does - to try to get back for October. So we'll just continue to see how it progresses."
