Braves Activate Jason Heyward

Braves_Jason_Heyward_2The Atlanta Braves activated Jason Heyward from the disabled list and placed him in the starting lineup for Friday afternoon’s game against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Heyward will return to the leadoff spot and play center field against the Cubs. This will be his first game since his jaw was fractured by Mets left-handed pitcher Jon Niese’s fastball on Aug. 21 at Citi Field.
