First, the Mets’ Eric Young Jr. destroys the ankle of Tim Hudson, and now the Mets’ Jon Niese has drilled Jason Heyward in the face with a fastball and the young phenom will be out for 4 to 6 weeks after having two plates placed over fractures in his jaw. If you are a Braves fan looking for good news, they didn’t have to wire his jaw shut which should help him keep up his strength. With any luck, he’ll be back to the Braves in time for the playoffs.
Like with Hudson, I will be posting a Jason Heyward card every day until he either returns to the Braves lineup, or the Braves season comes to an end.
Jason Heyward is my favorite player in the game right now. He has endured a streak of bad luck this season. I’m confident he’ll be back.
