Braves | Jason Heyward out until at least Friday

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 21:14:57 -0700

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.

Braves | Tommy La Stella at leadoff

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 08:50:03 -0700

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he may give La Stella a long look in the top spot. La Stella is hitting .364 on the season. OF B.J. Upton and SS Andrelton Simmons are taking the day off.
