JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Jason Heyward can provide both a veteran presence and youth to the St. Louis Cardinals.
Going into the Cardinals' first Grapefruit League game, manager Mike Matheny had already made up his mind on what Heyward brings to the team.
"I see him as a veteran player," Matheny said. "He's accomplished quite a bit in a short amount of time. He's still a young guy but I see him with leadership qualities."
