Jason Heyward was pulled from Saturday's defeat of the Mets with cramping in his legs.

With his four-hit day, Heyward's line continued to climb, resting at .283/.331/.434 after Tuesday's action. The All-Star break is coming at a bad time for the 25-year-old, but he should remain productive in the season's second half.

Jason Heyward went 1-for-3 with a walk and a single in Friday's loss to the Padres.

Heyward's single was one of just four hits that the Cardinals managed as a team. The once highly-touted outfielder looked dead in the water a month ago, but he absolutely melted the ball in June, hitting .326/.365/.517 with four homers and 14 RBI for the month. After a rough April, he's starting to look more and more like the player that the Cardinals were hoping for when they acquired him in the off-season.
