Heim isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Tigers.
Heim drew starts in each of the last three games and went 1-for-8 with two strikeouts during that time. John Hicks will start behind the plate and bat fifth.
Heim started the second game of Sunday's doubleheader and went 1-for-3 in a 10-0 loss to the Blue Jays.
It was a nice weekend for Heim, who became the first Buffalo-born major-leaguer to play in the city since 1890. He had two hits in seven trips over two games in front of family and friends. With news that Jose Trevino (forearm) could return from a rehab assignment by the coming weekend, Heim should still be good for multiple starts this week.
Heim is out of the lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Blue Jays.
Heim has been serving as Texas' clear No. 1 catcher for most of the month while Jose Trevino (forearm) has been on the shelf. He'll be given a breather for the first game of the doubleheader while John Hicks catches for Texas, but look for Heim to receive a turn behind the dish in the nightcap.
Heim is not starting Sunday against the Athletics.
Heim had a nice day at the plate in Saturday's loss, driving in a pair of runs while logging two singles across five at-bats. He'll get a rest Sunday as John Hicks works behind the dish and bats fifth.

Heim's RBI single in the eighth propelled the game into extra innings, and his 10th-inning run-producing single forced the game into an 11th inning. Heim has hit well in the absence of Jose Trevino (forearm). The 26-year-old backstop is batting .297 (11-for-37) with four extra-base hits, seven RBI and three runs scored over the last 10 games. He's performed so well that he was recently promoted to the fifth in the order.
Heim is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Tigers.

Heim batted fifth and went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 7-3 loss to Detroit.
Heim went deep in the ninth inning for his fourth home run of the season. This was the second consecutive game hitting out of the five hole, which has featured six different batters over the last nine games. Manager Chris Woodward is trying to find a solution there, and Heim is the latest to get a shot. At various times, the Rangers have batted Nate Lowe and Adolis Garcia fifth, but they have since settled into second and third, respectively. The other 10 players to hit fifth this season have a combined slash of .193/.267/.287.
Heim isn't starting Saturday's game against the Mariners.
Heim has had increased playing time recently with Jose Trevino (forearm) sidelined, but he'll retreat to the bench for the second time in the last three games. John Hicks will start behind the dish and bat eighth.
Heim went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Oakland.
Heim started a second straight game, as primary backstop Jose Trevino is dealing with a forearm injury. Trevino is listed as day-to-day, so Heim should fill in until the team's top backstop is ready to return. Heim is 12-for-28 (.429) with five extra-base hits, six RBI and five runs scored over his last nine games.
Heim went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Friday's 9-4 win over Kansas City.

In his last seven games, Heim has gone 10-for-22 (.455) with three doubles, a home run, five RBI and four runs scored. He's likely to continue splitting time with Jose Trevino, although Heim has most often filled the backup role behind the dish.
Heim will start at catcher and bat ninth Wednesday's game against the Athletics.
Though Heim in the lineup Wednesday, the playing time at catcher has swung in the favor of Jose Trevino of late. Trevino caught each of the past three games and seems to have temporarily solidified himself as Option 1A behind the plate for Texas.
Heim is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.
Jose Trevino will be behind the plate for Texas in the series finale, but Heim seems to have emerged as the Rangers' favored backstop of late. Heim started at catcher in four of the Rangers' previous six games, going 6-for-15 with a home run, a double, a walk, three runs and two RBI.

Heim will catch and bat ninth Wednesday against the Giants.
He'll crack the lineup for only the second time in six games while No. 1 catcher Jose Trevino gets a breather for the day game after a night game. The Rangers had divvied up the starts between the backstops more evenly in May, but Heim has seemingly settled into a clear backup role at this point. The 25-year-old switch-hitter is slashing a weak .167/.228/.306 across 80 plate appearances in his first season in Texas.
Heim started a second consecutive game Tuesday in place of Jose Trevino (triceps). He went 0-for-3 in a 4-2 loss to the Giants.
Manager Chris Woodward told Justice delos Santos of MLB.com that he would have used Trevino on Monday if that game was necessary and was prepared to use him Tuesday if needed. That scenario could have been tested as Adolis Garcia pinch hit for Heim in the ninth inning, but the game ended there. The Rangers revealed that Trevino was dealing with a sore triceps Tuesday, and the hope is that two days off, coupled with a team off day Wednesday, gets him at full strength for Thursday's series opener at Houston.
Heim went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and another run scored during Thursday's win over the Twins.
With the Rangers trailing by one in the seventh frame, Heim stepped up to the plate with two outs and evened the score with a long ball against Hansel Robles.

Heim went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's 7-4 loss to San Diego.
Heim's second-inning double snapped an 0-for-34 skid for the Rangers, who were no-hit Friday and last had a base hit in the eighth inning Thursday. He's started three games and is 3-for-11 with two doubles, a home run and three runs scored in relief of Jose Trevino.
Heim went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.
The backstop swatted a 392-foot homer to left field in the sixth inning for the first long ball of his major-league career. Heim didn't show substantial power in the minors -- he has never reached double-digit homers in a single season -- though he does offer solid defense and batted .358 over 106 at-bats at Triple-A in 2019.
