Monday Night's Braves Lineup, And No Heyward

Here is tonight’s lineup for the Braves against Strasburg:

1. Martin Prado, 2B
2. Melky Cabrera, RF
3. Chipper Jones, 3B
4. Brian McCann, C
5. Troy Glaus, 1B
6. Eric Hinske, LF
7. Yunel Escobar, SS
8. Gregor Blanco, CF
9. Tim Hudson, P

Heyward will sit with a strained ligament in his left thumb, an injury which won't require surgery but could land him on the disabled list. The rookie outfielder had an MRI this morning and we should know the severity of the injury soon.
