Jason Heyward is presumably returning to lineup tonight

Jason Heyward sounds like his return from a fractured ego sore right shoulder will happen tonight at Turner Field, and to really make everything smoothed over; it’s his bobblehead night!

Heyward told a person close to him this morning that he’s feeling good and ready to return to the lineup. After two minor league rehab games with Triple-A Gwinnett up in Indianapolis, Heyward traveled back to Atlanta today. Heyward will likely take batting practice before the Braves make a final decision on activating him but he told this person his shoulder is feeling as good as it’s felt in a long time and he’s “ready to get back to the office.”

Yea, whatever. Let’s just hope he hits .260 or better with some pop so that he doesn’t need to go back on the DL for some type of imaginary injury that multiple MRI’s cannot detect. We knew we never should have sponsored his B-R page.

UPDATE (3:40 PM): David O’ Brien reports that Heyward is in the lineup, hitting 7th.
