Jason Heyward showed up to spring training with some added muscle, and the outfielder said that he will wear a protective guard on his batting helmet this season, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

At 24, it would be a good time to bet on Heyward taking a step forward in his development. The Braves recently locked him up through 2015, and if he could approach his 2012 numbers this season and next, he can expect a big payday in 2016. Improved performance at the plate would also bode well for the Braves' pennant hopes.
