Heyward to start season in right field

MLB: Braves vs Astros MAR 06Jason Heyward has made the Atlanta Braves. Despite some, including myself, who said he may benefit from some at-bats Triple-A there wasn’t much the 20-year-old did this spring that made those notions true.

Heyward was 15-for-41 (.366) with a home run and five RBI in his spring audition and it became increasingly clear that whatever Heyward lacked in experience when compared to Matt Diaz and Melky Cabrera he more then made up for in raw talent.

While Heyward will be played in right field the duo of Diaz and Cabrera figure to share time in left.
