Jason HeywardBraves outfielder Jason Heyward is headed to the disabled list with a sore right shoulder, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution tweets.

Heyward had a cortisone shot last week after he was diagnosed with rotator-cuff inflammation. Heyward missed five games last week, returned to play three and then aggravated the shoulder before batting practice on Friday. He did enter Saturday's game as a defensive replacement.

"Going into the National League games, you don't what to be short," Gonzalez told the AJC earlier in the day.

Heyward has struggled in his sophomore season, hitting .214/.317/.407 with seven home runs.

Wilkin Ramirez was recalled to take Heyward's spot on the roster. 

The Braves will also have outfielder Nate McLouth's oblique re-examined on Monday, an off-day as the Braves travel from Anaheim to Pittsburgh.

Heyward to DL

Just when we need everyone to make the run on the Fillies. Let's hope this is very short term since we need every bat working for us, especially Dan Uggla.
