Cubs' Jason Heyward: Smacks first home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Royals.

Heyward hit his first home run of 2020 in the second inning with a man aboard. The veteran has gotten off to a bit of a slow start this season with just a .615 OPS through nine games, though his strong defense in right field should afford him a decent amount of job security.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is not in the lineup Sunday versus the Pirates.

Heyward started the past four games and was 4-for-13 with two runs and two RBI in that stretch, but he'll take a seat against Pittsburgh southpaw Steven Brault. Steven Souza will start in right field Sunday for the Cubs.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Drives in two runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 2-for-4 with two RBI during Friday's 6-3 win over the Pirates.

Heyward plated two runs in the bottom of the fifth with a two-run single, scoring Kris Bryant and Kyle Schwarber. The veteran outfielder got off to a slow start at the plate but seems to be turning things around, and he has hit safely in three of Chicago's last four games. This was his first multi-hit game of the season.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Not in Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward isn't in the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

Heyward started in each of the Cubs' first three games, but he'll play a bench role for the team's first road game after going 1-for-10 with one RBI over three contests to begin the year. Steven Souza is starting in right field, batting sixth.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Likely to hit sixth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward will likely hit sixth most games when the 2020 season is able to begin, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Heyward found some success when hitting lower in the order last year but struggled when the team moved him to leadoff, as the veteran outfielder posted a .147/.277/.295 slash line in 25 games batting first between August and September. Kris Bryant has been designated as the team's leadoff hitter heading into 2020, so perhaps Heyward can get into a groove again while locked into a more comfortable lineup position.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is not in Sunday's lineup against the Cardinals.

The Cubs essentially shut Heyward down for the year when they were eliminated from playoff contention. Nico Hoerner is starting in center field and hitting seventh.

September 28, 2019 03:52 PM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Sits again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward remains on the bench Saturday against the Cardinals.

Heyward sits for the third straight contest as the Cubs have seemingly elected to rest him with nothing left to play for. Ian Happ gets the start in center field.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is not starting Thursday against the Pirates.

With no chance left at making the playoffs, the Cubs are turning to a majority of reserves in Thursday's series finale. Heyward will head to the bench as Tony Kemp, Albert Almora Jr. and Ian Happ man the outfield.

September 13, 2019 12:36 PM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is not starting Friday against the Pirates.

Heyward started the last five games and went 8-for-17 with three homers and two doubles in that stretch, but he'll take a seat Friday with lefty Steven Brault on the mound for Pittsburgh. Albert Almora is starting in center field and batting eighth in his place.

September 12, 2019 12:12 AM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Launches two homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 2-for-3 with a pair of home runs, three RBI and two walks in a loss to the Padres on Tuesday.

Heyward got the Cubs on the board with a two-run shot to left field in the second inning and slugged a clutch home run to tie the game in the eighth. The multi-homer game was the second of the season for Heyward and marked his third straight game with two hits. The 30-year-old is slashing .256/.345/.443 with 21 round trippers and 55 RBI in 536 plate appearances this season.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Knocks two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a double in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Cubs.

Heyward's ninth-inning blast was his first since Aug. 18 and 19th of the season. Since his last extra-base hit on Aug. 24, the veteran outfielder has been stuck in a hideous 2-for-36 (.056) slump. He owns a .251/.338/.428 slash line over 527 plate appearances on the year.

September 1, 2019 02:12 PM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

He'll cede his spot in the outfield to Albert Almora as the Cubs go with an extra right-handed bat to counter Brewers southpaw Gio Gonzalez. Heyward has gone hitless in 17 at-bats over his past four starts, dropping his season-long average to .255.

August 30, 2019 11:16 AM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is out of the lineup for Friday's game versus the Brewers.

Heyward started the last 12 contests and has a .509 OPS in that stretch, and he'll take the day off Friday to reset. Ian Happ will start in center field and bat leadoff in his stead.

August 19, 2019 02:40 AM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Swats solo homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and a walk in Sunday's win over Pittsburgh.

Heyward homered to left field in the third inning and scored another run after doubling in the fifth. The long ball was his third in August after going yard only once in July. The increased power has come at the expense of average, however; he batted .309 last month but has gone 10-for-52 (.192) through 15 games since the turn of the calendar.

August 16, 2019 04:52 PM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward (knee) will return to the starting lineup Friday and lead off against the Pirates.

The 30-year-old returns to the starting nine after being excluded from the lineup for two games with left knee inflammation. Heyward has gone 8-for-41 with two home runs and four RBI in the month of August.

August 15, 2019 05:12 PM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Remains out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward (knee) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Phillies.

Heyward was scratched from Wednesday's lineup with left knee inflammation and will need at least one more day to recover. Albert Almora is starting in center field and hitting ninth in place of Heyward, who should be considered day-to-day ahead of Friday's series opener in Pittsburgh.

August 14, 2019 04:40 PM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Scratched with knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Phillies due to left knee inflammation.

Heyward is being considered day-to-day; he isn't scheduled to undergo an MRI and doesn't expect to require a trip to the injured list, per Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times. Ian Happ will cover center field in his absence, with Tony Kemp entering the lineup at second base.

August 11, 2019 11:48 AM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Leading off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is starting in center field and batting first in Sunday's game against the Reds.

Heyward did not start Saturday, but he'll be back in action against tough Cincinnati righty Luis Castillo. The Cubs suddenly have a pretty crowded outfield with the addition of Nicholas Castellanos, so Heyward will jockey with Albert Almora, Ian Happ and Kyle Schwarber for playing time.

August 10, 2019 03:52 PM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Bows out of starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward isn't starting Saturday's game against the Reds.

Heyward is just 1-for-12 over his last three contests, so he'll head to the bench for a breather. Albert Almora will man center field and lead off in Heyward's absence.

August 4, 2019 06:28 PM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Drives in three runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 2-for-5 with a home run, a triple, three RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Brewers.

Heyward set the tone for his team's offense with a leadoff homer off Brewers starter Adrian Houser. He then drove in another run with a triple in the following inning. The 29-year-old outfielder now has 17 long balls as he looks to reach the 20-homer mark for the first time since 2012.
