by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Gattis hasn't played since Sept. 7 as he continues to deal with a kidney stone. Heyward injured his thumb Wednesday and hasn't played since.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielder Jason Heyward was not in the team's starting lineup Friday.

Heyward injured his thumb Wednesday, and was sent for an MRI. He will not play Friday, and it's unclear how long the issue will keep him on the bench.

Fantasy Analysis | 1410815731
Jason Heyward still lacking thump
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Just before the All-Star break, Jason Heyward started to pick up his batting average, and he hasn't really cooled off since. Over his last 54 games, Heyward is batting .329 with a .387 on-base percentage. Sadly for his Fantasy owners, it's come with very little power.

While Heyward has hit 12 doubles and a triple over that span, he has launched only three home runs. Given that the Braves' outfielder has been an inconsistent power hitter over his five years in the majors, it's reasonable for owners to start wondering if that consistency is ever going to materialize.

In my latest blog post, I have taken a look at Heyward's offensive trends this season to get an early read on what sort of value he will have next season. His ability to make contact (32 strikeouts over his last 207 at-bats) and steal make him a must-start option right now, but given his lack of power, Heyward will be something less than an early-round option in 2015.

Jason Heyward slugs 11th home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielder Jason Heyward went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 3-2 win over the Mets Wednesday.

Heyward led off the game with a home run, getting right back on the board after his six-game hitting streak ended Tuesday. He has hit .270/.351/.391 with 11 home runs, 53 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 486 at-bats.
