News: Heyward went 2-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and a pair of runs in Thursday's 8-0 win at Cincinnati. Impact: Heyward was recently mired in a 1-for-12 slump, but he's gone 8-for-17 with six runs and six RBI in his last four games. He's been hitting leadoff for over a week now, so it looks like he'll stick there, meaning fewer RBI opportunities, but more chances to score runs.(RotoWire, )

News: Heyward went 3-for-4 with one home run and two RBI Monday against the Pirates. Impact: Heyward was 1-for-12 in his last three games entering Monday, so this outburst was a welcome sight for his fantasy owners. He hasn't provided much power this season as he only has two home runs since June 16th and 10 on the season overall.(RotoWire, )

News: Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez has moved Heyward back into the leadoff spot in hopes of jump-starting the team's struggling offense. Impact: Heyward is hitting .274 with 14 homers, 43 RBIs, 65 runs scored in 99 career games at the top of Atlanta's batting order. (STATS, 7:05pm)

News: Heyward will return to the leadoff spot Wednesday and manager Fredi Gonzalez said he intends to use him there for a while, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: Gonzalez has mercifully pulled the plug on B.J. Upton in the leadoff spot, allowing Heyward to return to the top spot after two months or so in the five-hole. Tommy La Stella is out of the lineup Wednesday but Gonzalez said he will likely be moved down in the order starting Thursday, so as to not have three lefty bats in a row atop the order. Heyward has hit .254/.334/.384 with eight homers from the leadoff spot this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Hayward went 3 for 4, including a triple and a double, in Sunday's 4-3 loss at San Diego. Impact: Heyward is 5 for 9 in his last two games and has hit .396 with nine RBIs in his last 15.(STATS, 6:39pm)
