Cubs' Jason Heyward: Leading off for first time in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is leading off for the Cubs on Friday against the Cardinals, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

He's batting first for several reasons. Kris Bryant (finger) is not in the lineup, which forces the Cubs to shuffle things around. Also, as Muskat notes, the outfielder is 7-for-20 against Friday starter Carlos Martinez, and he's 12-for-36 with one home run and eight RBI to start July. Even if the hot bat can't make something of this tough matchup, fantasy players in relatively shallow leagues might have to start paying attention to him, at least as a rental.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Resting in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Braves.

Heyward will receive his first day off of the second half after recording four two-hit efforts in the Cubs' first five games of the second half. Jon Jay will earn a start in right field in Heyward's stead Wednesday, but the 27-year-old should continue to see regular at-bats against both right- and left-handers until his bat cools down.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Posts another two-hit game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 2-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Orioles. He also stole a base.

Heyward now has two hits in three straight games, and he's raised his batting average from .258 to .265 in the process. Heyward's strong defense alone should keep him in the lineup most days, and if he continues to hit, he could provide some fantasy value down the stretch.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Smashes seventh homer of season Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 2-for-4 with a double and a two-run homer Friday against the Orioles.

Heyward blasted his seventh bomb of the campaign to move the Cubs out to an eight-run lead in a game the team would have to come back to win. Although his .258/.316/.406 slash line is an improvement from his disappointing 2016 season, he's still been a shaky fantasy option through the first half of the season.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Sitting versus left-hander Wedneday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the Rays.

Heyward went 1-for-4 with a walk in his return from the disabled list Tuesday, as he was reinstated after missing nearly two weeks with a hand injury. Nonetheless, with southpaw Blake Snell toeing the rubber for Tampa Bay, the veteran outfielder will take a seat on the bench, giving way to Ben Zobrist in right field.
