Heyward went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Thursday's win over San Francisco. The outfielder has recorded a hit and scored a run in each of his five games since returning from the disabled list, and Heyward pulled a would-be home run foul by a foot Wednesday. His fantasy stock is continuing to trend up after a disastrous first season with the Cubs. Heyward offers five-category upside, and his defense will keep him in the lineup most nights.
Heyward went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Giants. Heyward was activated from the 10-day disabled list Sunday after missing some time with a finger injury, and he has hits in all three games since returning. The emergence of Ian Happ could complicate things in the Chicago outfield, but it looks like Jon Jay and Albert Almora are more at risk of losing playing time than Heyward.
Heyward (finger) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Sunday. He'll bat sixth and man right field. The Cubs had planned to have Heyward back in the lineup Saturday, but that game ended up getting postponed. He'll return to the fold for the series finale and will presumably take on the brunt of the starts in right field, with recent call-up Ian Happ seemingly displacing Jon Jay and Albert Almora as manager Joe Maddon's preferred option in center field.
Heyward (finger) was activated from the 10-day DL and is starting in right field and hitting sixth Saturday against the Brewers. He will resume his typical role in right field after missing 13 games with the finger injury. Ian Happ, who was up from Triple-A largely as a replacement for Heyward, is also in the lineup, playing center field and hitting fifth. The weather is pretty poor in Chicago, so there is a chance this game gets postponed.
Heyward (finger) took batting practice Friday and will likely be activated Saturday, Jeff Arnold of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Heyward, out since May 6 with a sprained finger, said his rehab appearance at South Bend went better than expected and he's certain he'll be able to return to the lineup as expected. It's great news for both parties as it allows manager Joe Maddon to reinsert a left-handed hitter into the lineup. Heyward is slashing .253/.333/.364 with 17 RBI this season and should be in line to return to his everyday role in right field, despite the emergence of phenom Ian Happ.
