The SportsXchange

Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward returned to the lineup Friday for the first time since breaking his jaw when he was hit by a pitch on Aug. 21.

Heyward is leading off and playing center field against the Chicago Cubs.

Heyward was placed on the disabled list after having to leave the Aug. 21 game when a pitch from the New York Mets' Jonathan Niese accidentally hit him in the face.

Heyward is batting .253 with 13 home runs and 37 RBI in 95 games this year.
