Jason Heyward To DL After Surgery
The team said late Monday that Heyward had surgery at Rose Medical Center in Denver.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez said before the opener of Tuesday’s day-night doubleheader against Colorado that there was no set timetable for Heyward’s return. The Braves recalled infielder Tyler Pastornicky from Triple A Gwinnett to fill Heyward’s roster spot.
Heyward was off to a slow start, batting .121 with two homers and five RBIs. Still, the Braves began the day with a 13-5 record.
