News: The Atlanta Braves have dealt Heyward and reliever Jordan Walden to the St. Louis Cardinals for pitcher Shelby Miller and a minor-leaguer. Impact: The 25-year-old outfielder never lived up to expectations after a brilliant rookie season, when he homered in his first at-bat and was voted to the All-Star Game. This past season, he hit .271 with 11 homers, 58 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. He also won his second Golden Glove. (STATS, 12:37pm)

News: Heyward was traded to the Cardinals on Monday along with Jordan Walden in exchange for Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins. Impact: He is under contract through the 2015 season, but the Cardinals could make a deal to keep him in St. Louis. The 25-year-old outfielder hit .271/.351/.384 with 11 home runs and 58 RBI last season with the Braves, and could see an increase in production with a move into a better offensive lineup from a club that scored the second-fewest runs in 2014.(RotoWire, )
