Heim is not starting Sunday's game against Cleveland. Heim hit his 10th home run of the season Saturday and will finish 2021 hitting .196 with 32 RBI, unless of course he pinch hits Sunday. Jose Trevino is catching and batting eighth.
Heim went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run and two walks in Saturday's 7-2 win over Cleveland. The rookie catcher got his home run total to a round number Saturday, smashing his 10th long ball of the season off Triston McKenzie to bust the game wide open in the fourth inning. It's been a tough slog for Heim batting average-wise this season, but he'll look to use the 82 games of experience he got with the big club in 2021 to vie for a roster spot next year.
Heim isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Angels. Heim went 2-for-4 with a double, a run and an RBI on Tuesday, but he'll head to the bench for the third time in the last four games. Jose Trevino will start at catcher and bat sixth.
Heim is on the bench for Sunday's game against the Orioles. Jose Trevino gears up to catch once again while Heim, hitting 0-for-17 in his last five games, rides the bench for a second straight game.
