Braves, Heyward agree on new 2-year contract
February 4, 2014
ATLANTA (AP) - The Braves have reached an agreement on a two-year, $13.3 million contract with outfielder Jason Heyward, avoiding arbitration.
The 24-year-old Heyward had an injury-plagued 2013 season. General manager Frank Wren said Tuesday those problems complicated the arbitration process and helped make the two-year contract possible.
Heyward hit .254 with 14 home runs and 38 RBIs in his fourth season with the Braves.
His season was shortened by two stints on the disabled list. Heyward had an appendectomy in late April and suffered a fractured jaw in August when he was hit in the face by a pitch.
