    • Cubs' Jason Heyward: Out of Monday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Heyward is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets. Heyward will get the day off for what could be a mental break after going 0-for-9 in the first series back from the All-Star break against the Rangers, but he will most likely return to the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Mets. Matt Szczur will get the start in right field in his place.

    • It was Heyward's idea to move down in the batting order, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. Heyward's thinking was to provide an experienced bat among all of the rookies near the bottom of the lineup, but he may be trying to get his own bat going as well. He went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in a blowout win Monday, so the experiment worked at least in the first game. Heyward is slashing just .235/.325/.326 this season and has been the biggest disappointment on the Cubs in 2016.

    • Cubs' Jason Heyward: Batting sixth Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Heyward will be bumped down to sixth in the order for Monday's matchup against the Reds. Heyward has hit out of the two-spot in three straight games, and 66 total games this year. The outfielder has even dabbled in the leadoff role, but he'll move all the way down to sixth Monday afternoon. After a dreadfully slow start, Heyward has been a bit better at the plate of late, but still owns just a .697 OPS since June 1. It's unclear at this time if this shuffle can be attributed to one of manager Joe Maddon's unique lineups, or if the Cubs are beginning to test out a longer-term idea for their batting order.

    • Cubs' Jason Heyward: Returns to lineup Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Heyward (side) is back in the lineup Friday, batting second and starting in right field. After missing the last two games due to some lingering soreness in his side, Heyward will reclaim his usual post in right field Friday. He'll face Mets righty Jacob deGrom, a pitcher he's gone 3-for-9 with two strikeouts against in his career.

    • Heyward is out of the lineup Thursday with a sore left side, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. Heyward will now miss a second game after he experienced a little muscle tightness his last time out, but he doesn't believe the injury is overly serious and expects to be ready to go Friday. Ben Zobrist will draw the start in right field Thursday, while Matt Szczur and Albert Almora will round out the Cubs' outfield against Steven Matz.
