J-Hey should be ready to go soon.
"He’s passed every test. I talked to him. He was available to pinch-hit,” Ross said. “I didn’t know if that was going to be the case going into the game. But, talking to him, he came into my office, it was nice to see a smile on his face. He’s been through a lot of tests the last couple of days and he felt good. Talked to him after the game. He feels good and feels like he’ll be ready to go tomorrow."
Heyward left Sunday's game versus the St. Louis Cardinals because he was feeling under the weather with a shortness of breath and light-headed. He was sent to the hospital that night for precautionary measures.
He has had an impressive season batting .300 with five homers, 17 RBI, and an .955 OPS.
In the last 12 games, he has hit .400 with three homers and five RBI.
