The news of Heywards injury was first reported by MLB’s Mark Bowman. It marks the second substantial injury for the Braves in a game against the Mets this year. Pitcher Tim Hudson had his ankle broken when Mets outfielder Eric Young landed on his foot on a play at first base on July 24. Watch Heyward being HBP below: Heyward had missed time earlier in the year after undergoing an appendectomy. The 24-year-old Heyward was hitting .253 with 13 home runs and 37 RBI on the season.
