Heyward is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers. With the Cubs facing a lefty in Clayton Kershaw, manager Joe Maddon will leave Heyward on the bench and start Jon Jay in right field. Although Jay is also a left-handed batter, he hit .318 against southpaws this season. Heyward could enter Saturday's game as a defensive replacement thanks to his stellar glove, however.
Heyward is in the lineup for Game 4 of the NLDS against the Nationals on Wednesday. With Stephen Strasburg now taking the mound for Washington, the Cubs will start Heyward in place of Kyle Schwarber. Heyward will hit seventh and start in right field, while Ben Zobrist shifts over to left.
Heyward is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Nationals. Heyward will retreat to the bench for Game 4 of the NLDS with right-hander Tanner Roark on the mound for Washington. In his place, Ben Zobrist will slide over to man right field while batting fifth in the order. Heyward could enter the fray at some point, especially if the Cubs gain an early advantage.
Heyward is out of the lineup for Game 4 of the NLDS on Tuesday against the Nationals. He is 1-for-6 through three games this series and 0-for-18 for his career against Nationals starter Tanner Roark, so the Cubs will look to get a boost on offense from Ben Zobrist in right field. Given Heyward's defensive prowess, he would likely enter the game as a defensive replacement if the Cubs can secure an early lead.
Heyward is out of the lineup against Washington on Saturday. Heyward heads to the bench with left-hander Gio Gonzalez taking the mound for Washington, while Ben Zobrist draws the assignment in left. During Friday's victory, Heyward went 0-for-3 from the plate. He will likely be back in the lineup for Monday's game against Max Scherzer, and could come off the bench to provide defensive help during Saturday's affair.
