heyward sunglasses.JPGBraves phenom Jason Heyward was scratched from Sunday’s exhibition game against the Nationals due to shin splints in his left leg, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Dave O’Brien (via Twitter).

Shin splints aren’t serious and won’t hold him out of regular season action, but anyone who’s dealt with the ailment knows how annoying it can be.  That said, a little pain medication and a few days of rest should take care of the issue. 

Heyward, who’s 17-for-49 this spring with a home run, five RBI and nine walks, was awarded the Braves’ starting right field gig on Friday and is shooting up the ranks in Rotoworld’s Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide.

    Just call Craig. He’ll deposit some frankincense and myrrh (whatever the hell that is) in the Heyward Child’s cradle and the kid will feel fine in no time.

    Guess he needs a new shoe sponsor.
