The Atlanta Braves and fantasy owners will be without outfielder Jason Heyward for the next two weeks after successful appendectomy surgery. Braves fans and fantasy owners probably feel like he has been missing the entire season, as he has managed just 7 hits in the Braves first 17 games. It looks like Jordan Schafer and Reed Johnson will split the outfield duties for Atlanta.
If you are looking to replace Heyward for the time being, Carlos Quentin has served his suspension and will be back in the San Diego Padres lineup. Other guys to look at are Nate Schierholtz, Cody Ross, Justin Ruggiano, Gerardo Parra, Alfonso Soriano, Brandon Moss, Daniel Nava, Ryan Doumit and Peter Bourjos.
