    Player Outlook

    Over his five-year Braves career, Fantasy owners had a hard time trying to set expectations for Jason Heyward. At various times, he showed power, a high on-base percentage and the ability to steal bases, but not all at once. In his first and only season with the Cardinals, Heyward continued to confound, setting career highs for batting average (.293) and steals (23), but blasting only 13 home runs. This version of Heyward was still good enough to be a top-25 outfielder, and now with the Cubs, that appears to be his floor for the coming Fantasy season.

    • Cubs' Jason Heyward: To sign with Cubs
      By RotoWire Staff

      Heyward has reportedly agreed to sign with the Cubs, according to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times. Several teams, including the Nationals and Cardinals, had been vying to sign the Heyward during the Winter Meetings, but the Cubs appear to have landed the talented outfielder. Though the Cubs have not officially announced the signing, Mark Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune reports that Heyward agreed to sign a multi-year deal with the Cubs. Heyward will provide Gold Glove caliber defense in the Chicago outfield in addition to an excellent ability to get on base (.359 OBP in 2015). He is a career .311/.376/.522 hitter at Wrigley Field.

    • Jason Heyward: Declines qualifying offer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Heyward declined his qualifying offer from the Cardinals on Friday and will remain a free agent, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. It was simply a formality for Heyward to turn the deal down, as he's in line for a multi-year and more lucrative deal. The 26-year-old had an impressive season in his lone year in St. Louis, slashing .293/.359/.439 with 13 homers and 23 steals. The Cardinals will still try to retain him but will now get a draft pick as compensation if Heyward signs elsewhere.

    • Jason Heyward: Receives Qualifying Offer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Heyward received a qualifying offer from the Cardinals Friday. This move was considered a formality, as the 26-year-old is on the cusp of a mega-deal heading into the offseason. St. Louis has repeatedly stressed they would like to bring their outfielder back, but Heyward's age and terrific 2015 season may have priced him out of the Cardinals budget. He could receive a contract worth nearly $200 million this offseason, but it remains to be seen which clubs may be in the running for his services.

    • Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup due to a rain delay. A handful of Cardinals were removed from the lineup due to the rain delay, so it doesn't appear as if Heyward's exit was due to injury. Randal Grichuck will get the start in right field with Jon Jay manning center field against the Braves.

    • Only a triple eluded Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward in his quest for a cycle Tuesday. He went 3 for 4 and scored twice while driving in two, stealing a base, and drawing a walk in the win over Milwaukee. Talk about filling up the box score, you can't ask for much more than what Heyward delivered against the Brewers. That's four straight multi-hit games for Heyward, who is scorching right now.
