Cubs' Jason Heyward: Dealing with right hand issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager David Ross said after Sunday's loss to the Pirates that Heyward had "something going on" with his right hand, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Heyward was replaced by a pinch hitter in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday, and he's apparently dealing with an injury. Heyward will be examined by the team's doctors after the game, and it's not yet clear whether the issue could impact his availability for Tuesday's series opener in Cleveland.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: On bench against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward will sit for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.

The Dodgers will start lefty Clayton Kershaw in the first game and righty Trevor Bauer in the second, so the Cubs are apparently saving the lefty-hitting Heyward for the nightcap. Kris Bryant will move to right field for the afternoon game.

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

Heyward is out of the lineup Friday against the Reds, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The outfielder will sit against lefty starter Wade Miley. This is the first day off since April 21 for Heyward, who's hitting .203 on the season with just two hits in his last five games.

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

Heyward went 2-for-5 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in Thursday's win over Atlanta.

Heyward is off to a bit of a slow start and this was his first multi-hit performance in two weeks. He should still play most days due to his strong defense in right, and after posting an .848 OPS in 2020, there is some reason to believe the 31-year-old will be able to pick up his level of production moving forward.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Goes deep Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

Heyward delivered a triple and three runs in Friday's game and kept up the solid production Saturday, posting his second home run of the season. The veteran outfielder won't jump off the page offensively but he can post some useful stats when he's locked in.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Scores three times in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 1-for-3 with two walks, a triple, an RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 15-2 win over the Brewers.

Heyward was held out of the starting lineup Wednesday and Thursday, but he made his presence felt in his return. The veteran is valuable to the Cubs because of his strong defense in right field, so even though he's batting just .220 so far this season, he should find his way into the lineup most days moving forward, and offensive production like he provided Friday is an added bonus.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Delivers walkoff hit off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 1-for-1 with a game-winning RBI in Thursday's 4-3, 10-inning win over the Mets.

Heyward delivered as a pinch hitter in the bottom of the 10th inning, bringing home Javier Baez to give the Cubs a sweep. The veteran outfielder has been on the bench the last two games, however, so it's possible his slow start (.214/.254/.321 slash line) is costing him some playing time, though he'll likely be back in right field soon due to his strong defensive ability.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward isn't starting Thursday's game against the Mets.

Heyward didn't appear in Wednesday's contest, and he'll remain on the bench for a second straight game during Thursday's series finale against the Mets. Kris Bryant will start in right field while Matt Duffy starts at third base Thursday.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets.

Heyward has gone just 1-for-8 with a run and one stolen base in the last two games. Kris Bryant will shift to right field while Matt Duffy starts at third base Wednesday.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Doubles, scores twice in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double and two runs scored in Saturday's win over Atlanta.

Chicago recorded 14 hits and 13 runs, and Heyward got in on the fun to extend his hitting streak to four games. The veteran outfielder is still batting just .213 this season, but the recent performance is a step in the right direction.

April 14, 2021 06:16 PM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Records two hits Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 2-for-3 with a double in Wednesday's loss against the Brewers.

Heyward accounted for half of the Cubs' hits in this game, as Chicago went 4-for-32 as a team in another woeful offensive performance. Heyward hasn't been able to escape the team's struggles, and this was just his second multi-hit effort of the campaign. He has been showing signs of life in recent days, however, reaching base safely in six of his last eight contests.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: On bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is not starting Monday against Milwaukee.

Heyward started the first three games of the year, including one against a lefty. He'll sit against southpaw Brett Anderson on this occasion, with Kris Bryant moving out to right field and Matt Duffy earning a start at third base.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Swats first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Pirates.

The veteran outfielder's first homer of the season came in the sixth inning as he took reliver Clay Holmes deep, Heyward has seen an uptick in his power numbers over the last couple seasons with 27 homers in his last 197 games, and he's off to a good start in that department in 2021.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Off to slow spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is 3-for-15 so far in Cactus League action with two walks and two strikeouts.

Heyward has historically been a slow starter in camp, as he's batted under .200 in each of his five prior spring trainings with the Cubs. That won't keep the veteran from playing almost every day in right field during the regular season, especially due to his strong defense. Heyward was also better with the bat in 2020, as he posted an .848 OPS, which was his best mark since the .849 OPS he registered during his breakout 2010 rookie campaign with Atlanta.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Heads to bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

Manager David Ross is going with something resembling a "hangover" lineup after the Cubs clinched the NL Central on Saturday. Cameron Maybin will get the nod in right field in place of Heyward, who ended up being one of the best hitters on the team during the regular season with a .265/.392/.456 slash line.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Records stolen base in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 0-for-2 with two walks and a stolen base during Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Pirates.

Heyward was still able to get on base twice despite being hitless on the evening and salvaged a positive fantasy day with a stolen base in the sixth. The 31-year-old is hitting .287/.414/.493 with six home runs, 22 RBI and a career-best .907 OPS.

September 22, 2020 04:16 PM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: On bench against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward will sit against lefty Steven Brault and the Pirates on Tuesday.

Heyward had started against the last four lefties the Cubs had faced, but he'll hit the bench this time around. Cameron Maybin gets the start in right field.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Stuns Brewers with late homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward went 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBI on Saturday in the Cubs' 4-2 win over the Brewers.

Heyward picked a good time to turn in his first long ball of September, taking Milwaukee closer Josh Hader deep with one out and two runners on in the top of the ninth to vault Chicago into the lead. During a season in which many of the Cubs' top hitters have underachieved, Heyward has been a pleasant surprise, slashing .283/.399/.522 over 138 plate appearances.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Goes 1-for-3 in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward (illness) went 1-for-3 in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to the Reds.

Heyward's lone hit was an eighth-inning single, one of just three hits against Reds starter Trevor Bauer. The 31-year-old Heyward played the whole contest in right field and should be clear to continue playing regularly going forward. He's slashing .301/.413/.534 with five homers, 17 RBI, 16 runs scored and a stolen base in 36 contests this year.

September 9, 2020 03:48 PM
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward (illness) is starting Wednesday against the Reds.

Heyward was available as a pinch hitter Tuesday, and he'll return to his spot in right field Wednesday. The 31-year-old underwent testing after leaving Sunday's game with light-headedness and shortness of breath, but he's been cleared to return to action.
