Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward (jaw) will have surgery Thursday, Aug. 22, to fix two fractures in his jaw. He's expected to miss four to six weeks. Since June 9, he was hitting .291/.373/.495 and was .357/.426/.607 in his last 22 games. OFs B.J. Upton and Jordan Schafer or SS Andrelton Simmons are the candidates to move into the leadoff spot with Heyward out.
Fantasy Tip: As David Schoenfield notes, Schafer is probably the biggest beneficiary of PT with Heyward out. The Bravos could also mix in Evan Gattis in the outfield, too.

Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward (jaw) fractured his right jaw when he was hit by a pitch Wednesday, Aug. 21, and he's likely to miss four to six weeks.
Fantasy Tip: This is a rough blow for the Braves as they push toward the postseason. If they can hang onto the NL East division lead and make the postseason, Heyward should be ready to return. Until then, Jordan Schafer will be a regular in the outfield and should be owned in most deep mixed leagues.
