KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Jason Heyward is facing some tough questions this spring.
Is the Atlanta Braves outfielder the too-good-to-be-true phenom who hit a homer in his very first at-bat and Hank Aaron predicted could change the face of the game? Or is he the guy who looked totally overmatched in his sophomore season that he had to share outfield time with a career backup and a career minor leaguer?
From all appearances, Heyward is heading into a crucial season at the ripe ol' age of 22. Just don't tell him that.
He says all he needs is to do is be healthy. If that happens, he's confident of recapturing the form that made him such a sensation in 2010.
