Player News
  • The Cubs placed Heyward on the COVID-19-related injured list Tuesday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports. Officially, Chicago placed Heyward on the IL without a designation, which has typically served as an indicator that a player has tested positive for the virus or been deactivated due to contact-tracing concerns. Rafael Ortega will pick up the start in center field in Tuesday's game against the Pirates and should serve as Heyward's primary replacement in the lineup until the latter clears MLB's COVID-19-related protocols.

  • Heyward isn't in the lineup Monday against the Pirates. Heyward has started against just one left-handed pitcher this year, and he'll be on the bench for a second straight game since southpaw Dillon Peters is starting for the Pirates on Monday. Rafael Ortega will take over in center field and bat ninth.

  • Heyward is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks. Heyward started the past six games and will take a seat after going 4-for-22 with a double, two RBI, three runs, a stolen base and seven strikeouts. Rafael Ortega will roam center field in his place while Frank Schwindel serves as the designated hitter.

  • Heyward went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored in Monday's win over the Padres. The stolen base is the first of the season for Heyward, who hasn't done much with the bat, as evidenced by his .603 OPS, which would be a new career low. The veteran stole 20 or more bases in consecutive seasons back in 2014 and 2015, but he doesn't run nearly as much these days. Heyward recorded eight or fewer steals in each of the past five seasons, so don't expect too much more production in that category, despite the swipe Monday.

  • Heyward will remain on the bench for the second part of Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers. Heyward sat against lefty Clayton Kershaw in the first half of the doubleheader, and he'll remain on the bench against lefty Tyler Anderson in the nightcap. Michael Hermosillo will make another start in center field in Heyward's absence.
