Jason HeywardGood news for the Braves: A second MRI on outfielder Jason Heyward's right shoulder showed no structural damage.

"Just normal wear and tear of a normal major leaguer shoulder, some inflammation," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez told reporters, including the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien.

Heyward went on the disabled list Sunday with rotator cuff inflammation, and Gonzalez said Heyward should be able to return soon after he is eligible. He has been bothered by his shoulder since spring training, missing three games in May before finally being put on the DL.

After finishing second in Rookie of the Year voting last season, Heyward has felt the sophomore slump, hitting .214/.317/.407 with seven home runs in 161 plate appearances this season.

No structural damage in Heyward's shoulder

This kid is killing me? Grabbed him a little too early during my fantasy draft because I really wanted him and there is a Braves fan in my league I thought would get him. Sophomore slump plus this injury, it's very disappointing. I think this kid will be Ken Griffey Jr. Jr. He can be that good and I hope we see some bit of that this year.
