Heyward is out of the lineup against the Rays on Wednesday. Heyward will receive a standard day off following a pair of starts, including a 1-for-2 performance at the plate during Tuesday's victory. In his place, Ben Zobrist sets up in right field while Albert Almora draws a start in center.
Heyward went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Cardinals. Heyward drove in the winning run with a seventh-inning single while notching his fourth three-hit effort of the season. Three of those performances have come since Aug. 6, though Heyward still hasn't been much of an offensive force with a .262/.324/.388 line for the season.
Heyward is out of the lineup Saturday against the Cardinals. Heyward heads to the bench following five straight starts, including an 0-for-3 day at the plate during Friday's victory. In his place, Ben Zobrist slides over to right while batting atop the order.
Heyward is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Pirates. The Cubs are shaking up the outfield configuration a little with a lefty (Steven Brault) on the hill for Pittsburgh. Ben Zobrist will start in right field and hit cleanup. Heyward is hitting .297/.370/.359 with one home run and two steals over his last 64 at-bats.
Heyward went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two walks, two RBI and two runs scored during Saturday's win over Atlanta. The bomb snapped a 27-game homer drought dating back to July 29, and this was just the ninth round tripper of the season for Heyward. The 28-year-old veteran owns an underwhelming .262/.323/.388 slash line, and with just 48 RBI and 49 runs, he's turning in another disappointing fantasy campaign. His attachment to the surging Chicago offense helps, but Heyward's still far from being a go-to asset in most settings.
