It's not exactly a shocking turn of events, but Atlanta Braves right fielder Jason Heyward will have surgery on his broken jaw on Thursday, Grant McAuley tweets.


Heyward took a 1-2 fastball from Jon Niese off his jaw in the Braves' win over the New York Mets on Wednesday, though he never lost consciousness and walked off the field under his own power.

The surgical procedure in Atlanta will require Heyward to go on a temporary soft food diet and all but guarantees that he will miss the rest of the regular season.
