Braves fans concerned after Jason Heyward left Sunday's game in the fourth inning can breathe a little easier. It was apparently just cramping in his upper left leg. Manager Fredi Gonzalez replaced Heyward immediately and said he wouldn't be in the lineup Monday when the Braves play their final Grapefruit League game against the New York Mets. "Why take a chance this late in spring training with any of that kind of stuff?" said Gonzalez, who replaced Heyward in the bottom of the fourth inning of a 7-7 tie against Philadelphia, as soon as the right fielder said his leg cramped when he chased a ball in the outfield. "He's made so much progress and you don't want a setback now."
Just a cramp for Jason Heyward
