Heyward is not in the lineup for Game 5 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Joe Maddon is going with a righty-heavy lineup against southpaw Clayton Kershaw, so Heyward will open Thursday's must-win game against the Dodgers on the bench as Ben Zobrist takes over in right field. Heyward could enter as a late-game defensive replacement if the Cubs are ahead.

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

EDGE Analysis

With the Cubs facing a lefty in Clayton Kershaw, manager Joe Maddon will leave Heyward on the bench and start Jon Jay in right field. Although Jay is also a left-handed batter, he hit .318 against southpaws this season. Heyward could enter Saturday's game as a defensive replacement thanks to his stellar glove, however.

Heyward is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward will retreat to the bench for Game 4 of the NLDS with right-hander Tanner Roark on the mound for Washington. In his place, Ben Zobrist will slide over to man right field, while batting fifth in the order. Heyward could enter the fray at some point, especially if the Cubs gain an early advantage.

Heyward is out of the lineup for Game 4 of the NLDS on Tuesday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

He is 1-for-6 through three games this series and 0-for-18 for his career against Nationals starter Tanner Roark, so the Cubs will look to get a boost on offense from Ben Zobrist in right field. Given Heyward's defensive prowess, he would likely enter the game as a defensive replacement if the Cubs can secure an early lead.

Heyward is out of the lineup against Washington on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward heads to the bench with left-hander Gio Gonzalez taking the mound for Washington, while Ben Zobrist draws the assignment in left. During Friday's victory, Heyward went 0-for-3 from the plate. He will likely be back in the lineup for Monday's game against Max Scherzer, and could come off the bench to provide defensive help during Saturday's affair.

Heyward is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer and two walks in Tuesday's 8-7 loss at St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward launched the first pitch thrown by reliever John Brebbia into the seats to trim a five-run Cardinals lead to two in the eighth inning. Chicago's rally ultimately fell just short, however, so the team's magic number for clinching the NL Central remains at one. The former Braves and Cardinals outfielder has slashed just .259/.328/.389 in his first season with Chicago.
