Weekly Check In: Slade Heathcott

Slade Heathcott was not one of the original September call ups as he battles a nagging quad injury. Heathcott has played as recently as Sunday with the injury so this doesn't seem to be a season threatening injury thankfully it looks more like a move to have a warm body at Triple-A as the Scranton RailRiders head into the playoffs. When the Triple-A playoffs end Heathcott, again if healthy which is never a guarantee with him unfortunately, will likely be headed back up to the Bronx so we may as well check in on him while we still can.

Heathcott spent time on the disabled list again this season but finally reached the Major League level after tearing up the Triple-A level. Heathcott is a speed and defense first outfielder with limited power and batting average but he plays with his heart and leaves it all out on the field and sometimes that's enough.
