Heyward is not in the lineup for Tuesday's NL Wild Card Game against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward will head to the bench for Tuesday's win-or-go-home contest as manager Joe Maddon stacks right-handed hitters against lefty Kyle Freeland. The outfielder hit .270/.335/.395 with eight homers in 127 games during the regular season and will be available off the bench. Albert Almora gets the start in center field.

Heyward is out of the starting nine versus the Pirates on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward will receive a breather after going 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI during Wednesday's victory. Ian Happ will give him a spell in center field for the series finale. Look for Heyward to return to the lineup Friday.

Heyward went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's 7-6 extra-inning win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

His two-run shot in the first inning off Ivan Nova was Heyward's eighth homer of the year, but his first in over two months. Barring a very productive final few games, the 29-year-old will fail to reach double digits in that category for the second time in the last three years.

Heyward is not in the lineup against Arizona on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward will take a seat after going 1-for-2 with a double and one run scored during his return to the lineup Tuesday. That marked his first taste of game action since Aug. 30, so don't be surprised to see manager Joe Maddon give Heyward regular time off as the regular season winds down. Albert Almora will patrol center field and bat atop Chicago's order.

Heyward (hamstring) is likely to start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward was activated from the disabled list Sunday but didn't get into the game, and he was also held out of Monday's starting lineup. However, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said the left-hand hitting outfielder will likely slot in there against Arizona righty Matt Andriese Tuesday. Heyward, who last played on Aug. 30, is slashing .275/.342/.399 this season.

Heyward (hamstring) was activated off the disabled list Sunday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the activation, Heyward isn't in the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale. He is available off the bench though, and he figures to get a decent amount of playing time down the stretch thanks to his defensive prowess in the outfield. Ian Happ, Albert Almora and Ben Zobrist will make up the Chicago outfield Sunday.

Heyward (hamstring) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Some reports suggested Heyward could return as early as Sunday, but his absence from the lineup proves otherwise. Monday was also a potential return date for the defensive whiz given his recent uptick in activity, so look for his name in the lineup soon barring any unforeseen circumstances. Ian Happ is in center field for the Cubs' series finale Sunday to replace him.
