Atlanta Braves right fielder Jason Heyward says he hopes to return to the lineup at the end of May after undergoing successful appendectomy surgery last week, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The team placed Heyward on the 15-day disabled list and he has not resumed any baseball activities, so there was no timetable for his return. The Braves are 15-9 this season, but are only 3-7 in their last 10 contests.

Heyward was hitting just .121 (7-for-58) with two home runs and five runs batted in through his first 17 games. Reed Johnson and Jordan Schafer are expected to continue to share playing time in right field during his absence.
