    Heyward is not in the lineup Thursday against the Dodgers.

    Impact

    Heyward will head to the bench for Thursday's series opener in order to avoid a matchup versus left-hander Clayton Kershaw. In his absence, Albert Almora Jr. gets the nod in center field, hitting sixth.

    Heyward went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 10-3 loss to the Rockies.

    Impact

    Heyward was the only Chicago hitter to take advantage of the thin air at Coors Field with a deep fly, as he popped his 10th home run of the season in the second inning. The 29-year-old outfielder has had a power resurgence this year, and he's on pace to get to 20 or more home runs for the first time since he hit 27 back in 2012. By comparison, Heyward had a total of just 19 home runs the last two seasons combined.

    News

    Heyward is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies.

    Impact

    With the Cubs and Rockies concluding their series with a day game, manager Joe Maddon has decided to give Heyward and fellow veteran outfielder Carlos Gonzalez a breather. Albert Almora Jr. will check into center field for Heyward, who went 9-for-28 (.321 average) with two home runs and a 4:3 BB:K while starting each of the previous eight contests.

    News

    Heyward went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in Monday's 8-1 win over the Angels.

    Impact

    After a little bit of a lull following a hot start to the season, Heyward is back into a groove. The veteran outfielder is riding a six-game hitting streak, and he has a double and two home runs in the stretch. For the season, Heyward is slashing .249/.357/.429 with nine home runs and 23 RBI.

    News

    Heyward went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Cardinals.

    Impact

    He took Jack Flaherty deep in the second inning to briefly give the Cubs a 2-1 lead. Heyward is flashing a little power again, going yard three times in his last six games, but all three have been solo home runs and he has no other production during that stretch. On the year, the veteran outfielder is slashing .242/.352/.423 with nine homers and 21 RBI through 52 contests.
