It’s Heyward’s job to lose
Bobby doesn’t usually make news in his columns for Chop Talk, but this excerpt caught my eye:
Even though he was injured and was unable to play during the Arizona Fall League, Jason Heyward is the top player in our Minor League system, and he’ll be given every chance to compete for a job at Spring Training.
The Braves have shown they aren’t afraid of promoting prospects with very little seasoning (see Fukey and Andruw). Expect to see Heyward in RF when the Braves open the season at home vs. the Little Bears. Perhaps he’ll take Carlos Zambrano deep.
