Heyward is out of Saturday's lineup against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Ben Zobrist will shift to right field as Javy Baez moves into the infield. Heyward has been having a decent road trip, batting .278 with a home run and two RBI over four starts. However, with the Dodgers starting left-hander Julio Urias, a day off was expected.

Heyward hit his sixth home run, a two run shot, in a 1-for-4 game in Monday's win over San Diego.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward made the most out of his first start after a weekend off, as he homered for the first time since July 29 against Seattle. He owned a brutal .196/.224/.250 batting line in 15 games since and has sat out six games in that time. The home run is a good sign for Heyward, but he'll probably need a few more solid games before he has completely earned back manager Joe Maddon's confidence.

Heyward is back in the lineup Monday after taking the weekend off.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward hasn't played since Wednesday against Milwaukee, as manager Joe Maddon gave him the weekend off to clear his head in the midst of a season-long batting slump. Heyward is hitting a measly .225 on the year, and he's just 9-for-48 at the plate in August. He'll slot back into the lineup Monday in right field, with Dexter Fowler in center and Kris Bryant in left.

Heyward will sit out of Friday and Saturday's games against the Padres, Jesse Rogers of ESPNChicago.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cubs' decision to give Heyward the weekend off isn't injury related, rather they simply want him to rest, most likely hoping that he'll come out of his hitting slump upon his return. While Heyward is out, look for Jorge Soler or Ben Zobrist to play his normal right field spot.

Heyward is out of the lineup Thursday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

It's easy to see why Heyward has been held out of the lineup four times in the last 11 games, as his season line now sits at just .225/.304/.313. His defense and baserunning still make him a 1.2-win player, according to Fangraphs, but he should continue to see one or two days off each week over the rest of the season.

Heyward is not in the lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against Milwaukee.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward's disappointing performance at the plate continued during Game 1 as he went 0-for-4, bringing his batting average down to .225 for the year. Chicago will opt to start Jorge Soler in right field and give Heyward the rest of the night off.

Heyward went 1-for-5 with a leadoff double in the 12th inning and scored the winning run in Sunday's 7-6 extra-inning victory over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

His two-bagger off reliever Cody Martin got things started in the 12th, and he eventually came home on a two-strike squeeze bunt by Jon Lester. Heyward has now hit safely in six of his last seven games, but only slashed .217/.291/.326 in 92 July at-bats.
