Default Jason Heyward out 4-6 weeks

After taking a fastball to the face and breaking his jaw in 2 places

Probably the scariest sight I've seen on a baseball field since that horrific Mike Cameron-Carols Beltran collision a few years back



A 4-6 week recovery jeopardizes his ability to play in the postseason, as they start in about 6 weeks.

i'm assuming his cheek is fractured? god, there is no worse sight in baseball than a HBP to the head or a comebacker.
