Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez has Heyward batting second and playing center field Monday night against the New York Mets.
Usually a right fielder, Heyward shifted to center for his first game since July 11 because B.J. Upton is on the DL with a muscle strain in his right leg. Upton ran for the first time since his injury.
Maholm initially injured the wrist while batting in his start at Miami on July 10. He walked off the mound Saturday after aggravating it in the fourth inning against the Chicago White Sox. Maholm flew back to Atlanta Sunday and had an MRI.
Gonzalez thinks Maholm would only miss two starts.
