Jason Heyward to play though neck spasms


Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward will play though neck spasms and a headache in Sunday’s game against the Washington Nationals.

Heyward began feeling neck spasms after fouling off a pitch on Saturday. He stayed in the game that resulted in a 6-2 Braves win.

Last season Heyward dealt with a similar issue but did not miss any time.

Though his first five games Heyward is hitting .167/.318/.333 with a home run and two runs scored.
