Rookie sensation Jason Heyward will open the season as Atlanta's regular right fielder.
Bet 2010 World Series Odds
The 20-year-old Heyward went into Friday's game against Detroit batting .366 with a homer and five RBIs in 41 at-bats this spring. The left-handed hitter had a .500 on-base percentage and .537 slugging average.
Braves manager Bobby Cox said ``he's done everything this spring.''
The spring training invitee was added to the 40-man roster after pitcher Todd Redmond was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Heyward was the Braves' first-round draft pick in 2007 and was named minor league player of the year last season by Baseball America after hitting .323 with 17 homers over three minor league stops. He started in Class-A and ended in Triple-A.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Braves a 20/1 long shot to win the 2010 World Series and 9/1 to win the American League Pennant.
