Jason Heyward started a game-winning rally in the ninth inning on Sunday, helping to propel the Cubs to a come-from-behind victory over the Nationals.

The Cubs had been shut out on four total hits through the first eight innings. They found a glimmer of hope in the ninth though after Heyward reached on a one-out infield single. Two hit batsmen and a grand slam later, and the Cubs were walk-off winners. With his 1-for-4 effort on Sunday, Heyward is now hitting .279/.344/.406 for the season.

Jason Heyward popped a solo home run for the Cubs' lone run in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Heyward's solo shot in the sixth inning was all the Cubbies were able to muster off of Clay Buchholz and the Arizona bullpen. He has settled in as the team's No. 3 hitter against righties lately, which is amazing to consider when you think about how little Heyward did in his first two years as a Cub offensively. Unfortunately, he doesn't run anymore and doesn't hit for much power, so Heyward remains a pretty uninteresting fantasy commodity.

Jason Heyward filled up the stat sheet Thursday, finishing 3-for-5 with two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in a win over the Cardinals.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon penciled in Heyward in the No. 3 spot in the order to start the second half and the 28-year-old came through, notching three of the Cubs' 13 hits in the win. All three hits were singles, including a pair of RBI singles in third and fifth innings. It's been a resurgent year offensively for Heyward, who's now hitting .290/.349/.434 through 78 games. That batting line in the middle of a good Cubs lineup should continue to keep Heyward as a viable starter in deeper mixed leagues going forward.

Jason Heyward went 1-for-5 and drove in a pair of runs on Friday as the Cubs topped the Padres in their first half finale.

Heyward delivered a two-run single off of Eric Lauer in the second inning, increasing the Cubs' early lead to 5-0, which proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Heyward has been surprisingly effective this season, slashing .285/.344/.431 with six homers and 41 RBI.

Jason Heyward homered as part of a three-hit performance Wednesday in the Cubs’ 13-inning loss to San Francisco.

It was quite an afternoon for Heyward, who reached base in four of his seven plate appearances. He began his day with a walk in the first inning and followed that up with a leadoff homer in the third. Heyward added to his haul with a pair of singles in the fifth and sixth innings. Heyward had been in a 2-for-15 dry spell prior to Wednesday’s breakout.

Jason Heyward (foot) went 1-for-3 with two walks and a run scored in his return to action Sunday against the Reds.

Heyward exited Saturday's game after fouling a ball off his foot, but he's already feeling better. The 28-year-old has enjoyed a nice little bounceback at the plate this year, batting .280/.339/.421 with five homers and 38 RBI through 71 games.
Jul 9 - 8:48 AM

Jason Heyward was removed from Saturday's game against the Reds after fouling a ball off of his foot.

He was replaced by Albert Almora in center field. Heyward will presumably head for X-rays to ensure that nothing is broken and the Cubs should have an update on his status after the conclusion of Saturday's game.
Jul 7 - 3:47 PM

Jason Heyward went 4-for-6 with two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's scorching 14-9 win over the Twins on Saturday.

The weather was so hot that several players had to leave the game with heat-related illness. Heyward made it all the way through and was the star of the game. It was his third four-hit game of the month. He delivered RBI-singles in both the fifth and seventh innings. The veteran right fielder has his line up to .291/.349/.440 with five home runs, 37 RBI and 38 runs scored on the season. He has yet to steal a base this season.

Jason Heyward blasted a two-run homer on Friday, helping to power the Cubs to victory over the Twins.

Heyward got the Cubs started on the comeback trail, clubbing a two-run shot off of Jose Berrios in the third inning. He also singled in the contest, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4 with three runs scored. He has been surprisingly productive at the plate this season, slashing .281/.341/.434 with five homers and 35 RBI, though he still leaves a lot to be desired from a fantasy perspective.
