Latest Update Jason Heyward is not in the Braves starting lineup Sunday. Sun Sep, 28, 10:33 AM
A unique mix of size, power, speed and skill, he's also very mature and has a great approach to the game--including good plate patience. Is also excellent defensively and does the little things well.
Flaws: : Needs to keep refining his game in all areas to maximize his significant potential. Must also be able to handle the pressure of being a much-ballyhooed prospect. Also, can he hit left-handed pitching as well as righties?
The struggling outfielder frustrated his fantasy owners more than he helped them this season. Will stay clear of owning him in fantasy leagues in 2015.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Heyward has missed the last four games due to a thumb injury, but appears ready to get back into action.He might need a day or two to get his swing back, but he's back in the lineup Tuesday and batting fifth.Analyst: Howard Bender
He's been out since Wednesday with this thumb issue. Emilio Bonifacio has been getting a bulk of the playing time in his absence.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
The two seem to be on different pages and will want to get this resolved immediately. Heyward is an integral piece of the Braves' success, but with a minimal amount of games left, it is hard to say whether Heyward will play again in 2014.Analyst: Colby Conway
