Heyward continues his stint. The G-Braves return to Coolray on May 18.
When the Gwinnett Braves return to Coolray Field on May 18, yet another high-profile Atlanta Braves player is likely to join them. Pitcher Brandon Beachy, who is recovering from off-season arm surgery, could start the G-Braves' Sunday (May 19) game on a rehab assignment, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Beachy, 26, had so-called "Tommy John" elbow surgery in the off-season, and he could have several starts with Gwinnett before being activated again by Atlanta.

Also, outfielder Jason Heyward continues his stint with Gwinnett, with no word yet on when he'll return to Atlanta. ~ Suwanee Patch
