The Braves have agreed to terms with outfielder Jason Heyward on a two-year contract, avoiding salary arbitration.
Heyward has elite skills, but he's soft and he's been beset by continual injuries leading to roller coaster like efforts from month to month for his career. Reports suggest he'll be paid over $13 million over the next two seasons, so the Braves are banking on Heyward becoming the player that we all know he can be - if he can stay on the field.

Derrick Rose will not play against the Bucks Wednesday.
Rose was doing full-contact drills Monday and participating in 5-on-5 work Tuesday. He's building up his conditioning and it shouldn't be much longer before he's back on the court. How many minutes he logs per game once he does return might be in question as the Bulls are looking more towards the playoffs than anything else. Analysis: Howard Bender
Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) wil play Wednesday.
Jones has missed the last six games with a collapsed lung, so to see him get back on the court Wednesday is great news just from a humanistic standpoint. If he can continue to shine glass as he's done throughout the season (7.3 boards per game), then he'll be a nice asset down the stretch. Analysis: Howard Bender
