Braves | Jason Heyward to stick in leadoff spot

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 14:20:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward will stay in the team's leadoff spot for a while, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez. The Braves are hoping that Heyward will provide a spark for the offense like he did last summer.

Fantasy Tip: Atlanta is desperately trying to jumpstart their offense as they chase the Washington Nationals in the National League East. Heyward's move to the leadoff spot could help his runs scored go up, but it'll likely also limit his RBI chances, especially if the club continues to struggle with the sticks.
