Braves OF Heyward still wearing helmet guard

Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward will keep wearing the same protective guard on his helmet that he wore last season after he returned from a broken jaw, according to MLB.com.

Heyward, 24, broke his right jaw when he was hit in the face by a pitch from New York Mets left-hander Jon Niese last Aug. 21. Heyward returned in August.

Heyward had a batting line of .254/.349/.427 with 14 home runs and 38 RBI in 104 games in 2013. He is expected to bat in the leadoff spot this year.
