OF Jason Heyward, Atlanta Braves: The numbers are ugly: .165 batting average, three homers, 10 RBI. The track record is not. And after this historically slow starter was placed on the DL with an appendectomy early this season, it stands to reason Heyward will need even longer than usual to get into gear. With all of the protection in the Braves lineup, Heyward should get plenty of chances to find his groove. Just give him the time before you give him up for some other team to make a second-half run.
