Injured Heyward Plans To Skip All-Star Game

Braves rookie outfielder Jason Heyward is having a pretty good season for a 20-year-old, but landed on the DL Monday with a deep bone bruise in his left thumb. Heyward has ridden his hype to the second most votes among National League outfielders, so even though the voting is still going on, he’s already taken it upon himself to say he’ll go but won’t play in the game.

“I believe I’ll still be able to go,” said the presumptuous rookie, either pontificating on Major League rules or the possibility that his painful finger injury might prevent him from flying to idyllic Anaheim.

“I actually don’t plan on playing in the All-Star Game if I’m selected,” he said before pausing for gasps from the assembled media. “If I can’t play for this team [the Braves], right here, right now, I don’t want to go play in that game and jeopardize the second half.”

“That’s too bad,” said Braves manager Bobby Cox, choking back tears. “Being a rookie and making it to the All-Star Game is pretty special.”
