MLB News: The Atlanta Braves have placed outfielder Jason Heyward on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to the 21st of April due to having to have an emergency appendectomy performed. The struggling, young outfielder is expected to miss only a few weeks.
Fantasy Ramifications: First and foremost, here is to a speedy recovery! With that being said, Heyward is still though of as a solid outfield option in fantasy baseball this year. His value won’t get any lower than it is right now though, so if you are in need of an outfielder and can get him on the cheap, he is a great option to take a flyer on.
