The Atlanta Braves experienced quite a scare during their late-August matinee against the New York Mets at Citi Field as star outfielder Jason Heyward was hit by a Jonathon Niese pitch in the top of the sixth inning. It appears he has made a speedy recovery, as the Braves have indicated he will start in the team's Sept. 20 game against the Chicago Cubs.
