Jason Heyward Out Of Atlanta Braves Lineup Vs. Phillies

Jason Heyward won't be in the lineup for the Atlanta Braves Tuesday night against Philadelphia, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien:

Heyward sat out Monday's loss to the Pirates with soreness in his right oblique muscle, an ailment he told the media Monday was "minor," just a few days after Atlanta dodged a huge bullet with Brian McCann's rib injury that only cost the All-Star catcher one day.

Eric Hinske started in place of Heyward Monday night against Pittsburgh, and is still expected to return to the lineup on Wednesday. Heyward suffered an oblique injury in the minors in 2009 that kept him out of the lineup for three weeks.
