Thumbs Down! Jason Heyward to the DL: Fantasy Pickup Options

As we get one All-Star back from thumb injury another falls. Jason Heyward, the rookie phenom, who has taken Hotlanta by storm, landed on the DL today with an left thumb injury.

The good news was the MRI showed no structural damage so two weeks of resting the thumb should do the trick and he will hopefully be back by the All-Star break. Playing through the pain certainly didn't work and since the initial injury 39 games ago, Heyward has seen his average drop from .299 to .251.

He's also only amassed 3 HR and 17 RBIs in the injured span while in the previous 31 games prior he was a man possessed hitting 8 HR and 28 RBIs.

Clearly a little rest is needed for the big boy, but the real question is – who do you pick up off the wire in the meanwhile? Here is a list of players who are probably out there to help fill the void for the next two weeks.
