Heyward went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 8-3 win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward hit his 15th home run of the season with two outs and a runner on in the fifth inning, giving the Cubs a 5-3 lead. The 29-year-old outfielder has had a power resurgence this year, as the 15 home runs are the most in a season for Heyward since he hit 27 as a 22-year-old in 2012 with the Braves.

Heyward (back/hip) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward is said to be banged up and will rest again as Kris Bryant takes over in right field and David Bote mans third. The Cubs have a rare Friday off day this week, so Heyward will get a nice, extended breather before the team's two-game set with the White Sox to close out the first half. Heyward is having a resurgent season with his best wRC+ (114) since 2015.

Heyward is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward has hit an excellent .410/.465/.846 with four homers over his last 11 games. He'll get the day off due to minor hip and back issues, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports, though he's been described as simply "banged up," so it doesn't appear as though he'll be out for long. Willson Contreras will start in right field in his absence, with Victor Caratini getting the call behind the plate.

Heyward went 1-for-3 with a home run, two walks and three RBI in Sunday's 8-6 loss to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

After a slumping at the dish for sizable portions of both May and June, Heyward closed the past month on a high note. He went yard in all three of the Cubs' games in Cincinnati over the weekend, collecting six RBI along the way. Heyward could have a tougher time keeping the home-run streak going as the Cubs kick off a four-game series Monday in Pittsburgh, where the conditions are typically more favorable for pitchers. He'll start in right field and bat fifth in the series opener.

Heyward went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in a 6-3 loss to the Reds on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder has heated up again, hitting .480 over his last seven games with six extra-base hits (three doubles, a triple and two homers), a steal, six runs and seven RBI. Heyward's 12 home runs on the year are already the most he's slugged since 2015, while his .809 OPS is on pace to be his best performance in that category since 2012 -- the year he collected a career-high 27 home runs and 82 RBI as a promising 22-year-old.
