Jason Heyward: Lands on DL

Rotowire.com
Update: Heyward (appendectomy) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, retroactive to April 21.

Recommendation: The Braves indeed put Heyward on the DL after the 23-year-old underwent an appendectomy Monday night, and called up infielder Tyler Pastornicky to take his place on the active roster. Heyward will be eligible to return May 5, but in the meantime, Reed Johnson and Jordan Schafer may both see time in right field, though Justin Upton could move to right to make room for a guy like Evan Gattis in left.
