…and you should too.

The rookie outfielder will be starting out in right field for the Atlanta Braves on Opening Day 2010, and rightfully so.  The 20-year-old badass went into Friday’s game against the Detroit Tigers batting .366 with one home run and five RBIs in 41 spring at-bats, touting a .500 on-base percentage and .537 slugging average.  Hot.

Even Braves manager Bobby Cox thinks so, flattering Heyward by saying he makes the team that much better.

“How could we keep him off the team?” the skipper said. “He’s done everything this spring. He’ll be in there every day… With him, it doesn’t matter if a lefty or a righty is pitching.”

Old school third baseman (and the first boy I ever had a crush on) Chipper Jones is dazzled too, saying that he “couldn’t be more impressed” by the right fielder.  Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson, who is still a youngster himself after finishing third in last season’s Rookie of the Year voting, went so far as to call Heyward a “stud.”

Absolutely.

Heyward celebrated the announcement by going 2-for-4 against the Tigers today.
