Heyward went 2-for-4 with a triple, a run scored and four RBI in a 10-0 win over the Reds in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

EDGE Analysis

In his first start since recovering from a concussion and coming off the disabled list Friday, Heyward cranked a bases-loaded triple in the fifth inning before adding a sac fly in the seventh and trotting home on Albert Almora's double in the ninth. Heyward is still only hitting .235/.316/.363 on the season, but he does have 18 RBI and 17 runs in 31 games.

Heyward is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward recently returned from the DL (concussion) prior to Friday's game, during which he came in as a defensive replacement for Kyle Schwarber and lined out to center field in his lone at-bat. Look for Heyward to be available yet again off the bench, and he could rejoin the starting nine for Game 2 of Saturday's twin-bill.

Heyward was activated from the concussion disabled list Friday, Patrick Mooney of the Athletic Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the activation, Heyward is not in the lineup Friday in Cincinnati. Prior to the injury, he was hitting just .227 with a pair of homers through 29 games. In a corresponding move, reliever Randy Rosario was sent back to Triple-A Iowa.

Heyward (concussion) won't be activated from the disabled list when eligible Monday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward has been out with a concussion since May 7 after colliding with the outfield wall against the Cardinals. Though he won't be activated Monday, he will travel with the team to Atlanta and could be activated sometime in the next week. He'll be a true day-to-day case moving forward.

Heyward was placed on the concussion DL on Tuesday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This helps explain Heyward's absence from the starting lineup over the past two days. The outfielder apparently suffered the injury while attempting to catch Dexter Fowler's walkoff homer over the weekend. It's unclear how long Heyward will be sidelined at this point. David Bote was recalled from Triple-A Iowa in a corresponding move.

Heyward is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward will take a seat for a second straight game while Ben Zobrist draws another start in right field. There has been no word of any injury regarding Heyward, so it's possible manager Joe Maddon is simply looking to get the hot-hitting Zobrist more consistent at-bats.

Heyward is not starting Monday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward isn't being strictly platooned, but all five of his off days have come against lefties, and he'll sit against the southpaw Jarlin Garcia on Monday. Ben Zobrist will handle right field in his place.

Heyward is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward will take a seat against the left-handed Kyle Freeland. The 28-year-old is hitting a mediocre .247/.344/.390, though that would still qualify as his best season in a Cubs uniform. His 12 percent strikeout rate would be a career low, while his identical 12 percent walk rate is his highest since his rookie season. If his BABIP rises from a somewhat low .262, he could be in line for a respectable season at the plate for the first time since 2015.

Heyward went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored Sunday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward has quietly had a big four-game stretch, recording three multi-hit games, seven RBI and four runs scored in that span. He likely benefited from hitting at Coors Field over the weekend series, but he is now hitting .262/.352/.410 in 61 at-bats this season and has been a strong source of counting stats.

Heyward is on the bench as the Cubs take on the Rockies on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Kris Bryant will shift out to right field, with David Bote making his major-league debut at third base. Heyward had a respectable 105 wRC+ through his first 17 games this season, hitting two homers and walking as often as he strikes out.
