Cubs' Jason Heyward: To sign with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Heyward has 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 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 is also reporting 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 | RotoWire

Jason 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 | RotoWire

Jason 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.

Rain delay causes Cardinals to scratch Jason Heyward from lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

St. Louis 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 Atlanta Braves .

Cardinals OF Jason Heyward gets four hits in doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward went 4 for 8 in Wednesday's doubleheader against Pittsburgh Panthers , hitting a double and a grand slam in the second game.

That light-tower power we were promised once upon a time still hasn't quite shown up, as Heyward has just 13 homers on the year, but with a .292 average, 23 steals and fantastic defense in right field, he's going to be in for a big offseason payday -- particularly if he can help the Cardinals go on a nice playoff run.
