Update on the injury to the Braves' Jason Heyward

Atlanta Braves and baseball's top prospect Jason Heyward has not played in an Arizona Fall League game since Saturday. From Keith Law's chat wrap here is what he said about the injury:

Minor leg injury - hamstring, I think.

The little nagging injuries are creeping up every now and then with Heyward. I don't know whether to think this is a chronic thing or just the byproduct of playing the game all-out. Let's hope Heyward can get back in the saddle. This makes me think back to the injury that cut short Jordan Schafer's stint in the Mexican Winter League last winter. I know Schafer's injury during the regular season was what may have caused much of his bad play, but he also missed half of the games in the Mexican League that he could have played in to get tuned up for the season because of the injury.
