Updating a previous report, Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward (back) is not expected to return to the lineup until Friday, Aug. 1, against the San Diego Padres. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Wednesday, July 30, that he would probably give Heyward one more day of rest once Heyward says the back feels ready. "We talked about it today and he's still not feeling well," Gonzalez said. "If he comes in tomorrow and he's not feeling well, I'm not doing it, I'm not running him in there."
FANTASY TIP: Daily fantasy league players will want to play it safe and reserve Heyward Thursday and Friday. Wait to see him officially return and prove his health in one full game without setbacks before trusting him again.

Updating a previous report, the San Francisco Giants have not released 2B Dan Uggla. It was reported by multiple sources that Uggla had been released after a five-day stint with the club.
FANTASY TIP: The team might be hanging onto him in the event they cannot make a deal for an upgrade before the non-waiver trade deadline. There have been multiple reports that the team is interested in Cleveland Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera, who can also play second base. Stay tuned.
