Player Outlook
Jason Heyward enjoyed a career resurgence in his first year in Los Angeles, posting his most plate appearances (374), home runs (15) and RBI (40) since 2019 while finishing with a .269/.340/.473 slash line. His power output was particularly notable, as Heyward has never been known as a major long-ball threat, reaching 20 homers just twice over 14 seasons. The veteran outfielder's hard-hit rate and exit velocity remained in line with his recent campaigns, but he was able to generate substantial increases in launch angle (15.4 percent) and barrel rate (8.1 percent), leading to the late-career power boost. Heyward is no longer an everyday player -- all but 28 of his trips to the plate last season came against right-handed pitching -- but a strong-side platoon role should await him again in 2024 after he re-upped with the Dodgers on a one-year deal.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Not starting Tuesday

    Heyward is not in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday versus the Diamondbacks.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Homers in return

    Heyward went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a hit-by-pitch in Friday's 7-3 win over the Reds. Heyward returned from a back injury that cost him nearly seven weeks. He delivered a big hit with his eighth-inning blast, which was his first homer in five games this season. The outfielder has added four RBI and four runs scored. Heyward is likely to command at least a strong-side platoon role in right field, which he excelled at with a .269/.340/.473 slash line over 374 plate appearances in 2023.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Back in starting lineup

    Heyward (back) is starting in right field and batting eighth in Friday's game against the Reds, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. Heyward appeared in just five games for the Dodgers before landing on the 10-day injured list April 3 due to lower-back tightness, going 3-for-14 with two RBI. It took about a month for the 34-year-old to return to baseball activities, and he appeared in two games with Triple-A Oklahoma City earlier this week, going 0-for-6 with one walk and two strikeouts.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Return imminent

    Heyward (back) rejoined the Dodgers on Thursday but was not activated from the injured list, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. Heyward began a rehab assignment Tuesday and appeared in two games with Triple-A Oklahoma City, during which he went 0-for-6. Manager Dave Roberts said Heyward is ready to return soon, so it's likely he'll be activated at some point during the Dodgers' weekend series against the Reds.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Rehab assignment Tuesday

    Heyward (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. Given that Andy Pages is hitting .300 with an .850 OPS while being a defensive positive in right field, Heyward may be coming back to a bench role, or the Dodgers could demote James Outman (-0.1 fWAR) to Triple-A to make room. Heyward will play in rehab games Tuesday and Wednesday before being evaluated.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Takes batting practice

    Heyward (back) took batting practice on the field prior to Saturday's game against Atlanta, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Hewyard was cleared to begin baseball activities Friday, and Saturday marked the first time he has taken batting practice since landing on the injured list April 3. The veteran outfielder still doesn't have a clear return timeline, but he may move onto simulated games if his back is able to hold up after a few rounds of BP.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Begins baseball activities

    Heyward (back) ran at full speed Friday and began swinging a bat, J.P. Hoornstra of DodgersNation.com reports. Heyward landed on the 10-day IL on April 3 due to lower back tightness. The injury persisted well past his return window, and Friday marked the first time that the veteran outfielder has participated in any sort of baseball activities. The Dodgers will have a better idea of a timeline for his return once they see how Heyward's back responds to his most recent work.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Not cleared for baseball activities

    Heyward (back) has not yet been cleared to resume baseball activities, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. The Dodgers' last update on Heyward was that he was still experiencing soreness in his back, and it doesn't sound as though he's progressed much over the last week. Considering Hayward hasn't seen any game action since April 1, he'll likely need a considerable amount of time to ramp up once cleared. A timetable for his return should begin to come into focus once he can resume baseball drills.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Not taking swings

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that Heyward (back) is still experiencing "residual soreness" and isn't yet swinging a bat, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. The veteran outfielder hoped to return when first eligible after he landed on the 10-day injured list April 3 with back soreness, but he's still having issues nearly three weeks later. Heyward will need some time to build back up once cleared to swing before starting a rehab assignment, so he's likely at least a few weeks away from rejoining the Dodgers.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Still experiencing soreness

    Heyward (back) continues to deal with soreness and will be required to complete a minor-league rehab assignment before being activated from the 10-day injured list, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. Manager Dave Roberts didn't indicate when Heyward might get the green light to head out on a rehab stint, as the club will likely wait until he's feeling closer to 100 percent before allowing him to move to the next step. Chris Taylor and Enrique Hernandez should continue to see an uptick in opportunities in the corner outfield while Heyward returns to health.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Lands on injured list

    The Dodgers placed Heyward on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with lower-back tightness, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Heyward's back has caused him to miss the Dodgers' last two games, and it will keep him out for at least another 10 days as he moves to the IL. Imaging on his back didn't reveal any significant damage, so an extended absence isn't expected at this time for the 34-year-old outfielder. The Dodgers claimed Taylor Trammell off waivers from the Mariners on Tuesday and added him to the active roster to serve as Heyward's replacement.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Dealing with back tightness

    Heyward (back) is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Heyward sat out of Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to left-hander Steven Matz starting, and Heyward will sit out for a second straight game after his back tightened up. Teoscar Hernandez will draw the start in right field and bat sixth Monday against Giants right-hander Keaton Winn.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Out of lineup versus southpaw

    Heyward is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Heyward will unsurprisingly be on the bench for Sunday's series finale since lefty Steven Matz is on the mound for St. Louis. Chris Taylor will start in left field, pushing Teoscar Hernandez to right.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: In lineup Thursday

    Heyward (back) will start in right field and bat eighth Thursday against the Cardinals. Back tightness prevented Heyward from playing in the Dodgers' final spring training game Tuesday, but the issue appears to have subsided ahead of Thursday's contest. Heyward slashed .250/.276/.429 across 29 spring plate appearances and is already 2-for-6 with two RBI in the regular season after Los Angeles' series against the Padres in South Korea.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Reaches deal to stay in L.A.

    Heyward agreed Monday with the Dodgers on a one-year, $9 million contract, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com reports. Heyward and the Dodgers will run it back after he was surprisingly productive in 2023, slashing .269/.340/.473 with 15 home runs and 40 RBI over 377 plate appearances. His .813 OPS this past season was his highest mark since 2012, excluding the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign. The 34-year-old should fill a similar role again in 2024, starting in right field against righties while occasionally filling in as a center fielder. The Dodgers' decision to bring back Heyward also means that Mookie Betts will continue to see more action at second base.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Hits bench for nightcap

    Heyward is absent from the lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader at Colorado. Heyward gets a breather after going 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the opening game of the twin bill. David Peralta, James Outman and Enrique Hernandez will start across the outfield for the Dodgers in the nightcap.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: On bench against lefty

    Heyward remains out of the lineup Friday versus the Giants. Heyward was on the bench for Thursday's series opener with left-hander Kyle Harrison toeing the slab and he'll remain seated Friday as the Dodgers face off against another lefty in Sean Manaea. Chris Taylor, James Outman and Mookie Betts are starting across the outfield.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Sidelined versus lefty

    Heyward isn't in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday against the Giants, Kirsten Watson of SportsNet LA reports. Southpaw Kyle Harrison will start on the bump for San Francisco, meaning the lefty-hitting Heyward will be replaced in right field by Mookie Betts while Amed Rosario starts at second base.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Stays hot in win

    Heyward went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and an additional RBI in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Mariners. Heyward went 8-for-14 (.571) with five extra-base hits during this three-game series in Seattle. The outfielder has hit four homers and six doubles over his last 15 games, a span in which he's batting .451 (23-for-51). For the season, he's at a .283/.357/.508 slash line with 15 homers, 40 RBI, 55 runs scored and two stolen bases across 113 games as the Dodgers' main right fielder against right-handed pitchers.
