Jason Heyward connected on his eighth home run of the season in the Braves 7-3 victory over the Angels on Sunday.
After missing Friday's game with a hand injury, Heyward has managed to bounce back nicely from the ailment, having logged three hits and three RBI over his last two games. He is now slashing .255/.336/.386 with eight home runs and 26 RBI batting in the leadoff spot for the Braves, which should continue to result in a boost in stolen bases (9) along the way if he can stay off the trainer's table.

Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
