I still think Granderson can put up solid numbers when he gets back, but he might start off slow due to all the time he's been out...
Heyward is the real deal, and he's constantly getting better. Here's a stat line that illustrates this fact perfectly:
April - 26 K's and 13 BB's in 75 AB's.
May - 1 K and 9 BB's in 30 AB's.
Heyward had a two week stretch in April that was absolutely terrible. Pitchers started testing him, and he failed miserably. He was striking out 2-3 times EVERY game. And then he learned, adjusted, and has defeated it.
He's also stolen 3 bases in the past few days, and he actually has stolen 4; he was called out on one attempt even though he was VERY clearly safe after all the replays.
I can see Heyward legitimately hitting 25-30 HR's this year, stealing 15+ bases, and hitting over .275, and that's as a rock bottom projection. Granderson probably won't compare to those overall numbers this year, let alone the numbers Heyward could potentially put up.
I'm a homer Braves fan, but Heyward is legit. I was really frustrated with him in April when he was swinging at everything, but it's amazing how much better he is now compared to a month ago.
