Jason Heyward went 3-for-4 with one RBI and two stolen bases against the Mets on Tuesday.
Heyward has certainly been hit or miss this season, owning a .247 average with eight home runs and 33 RBI, but has recently been moved down in the batting order which will hopefully improve his fantasy production. He does hold the five tool skills to make for a great fantasy asset if he is ever able to put it all together, which is worth the investment regardless if he ever reaches his full potential.

The Red Sox are looking for an opportunity to give Brian Johnson his major league debut.
Johnson has a 2.92 ERA and 8.76 K/9 over 49 1/3 innings here in his first go-around with Triple-A Pawtucket. While the Red Sox would like to give him a taste of the majors, they'd obviously prefer to have a stronger rotation and not need to dip into their farm system as much as they have already. Steven Wright and Eduardo Rodriguez are getting a look right now. Should they fail and the struggles at the back end of the rotation continue, then perhaps we'll see Johnson at some point.
