Player Notes
Jason Heyward clubbed a two-run homer on Friday as the Cubs routed the Mariners 12-1 in an afternoon matinee at Wrigley Field.

Advice: Heyward's two-run blast off Hisashi Iwakuma in the third inning increased their early lead to 5-0. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the afternoon. He has had a rough go of it at the plate this season, slashing a mere .229/.316/.323 with five homers and 31 RBI.

Jason Heyward is out of the Cubs' starting lineup Thursday night against the White Sox.

Advice: Heyward has played his usual brand of elite-level defense this season in the Cubs' outfield, but he's batting just .229/.317/.315 in 91 games and he'll sit Thursday versus ace left-hander Chris Sale. Ben Zobrist will start in right field and hit cleanup. Javier Baez is at second base.

Jason Heyward will hit seventh in Wednesday's game against the White Sox.

Advice: This is the first time that Heyward has hit seventh during the 2016 campaign. He has struggled in his first season with the Cubs, slashing just .228/.315/.315 with four homers and 28 RBI over 346 at-bats.Daily Slant: While the Cubs are in a dream spot against Anthony Ranaudo (who has allowed a wOBA of at least .359 to both sides of the plate in his young career), Heyward is maybe the only Cubs bat that isn't worth a strong look. He's been hitting the ball on the ground far too often (nearly a 50% GB rate, which would be a great mark for any pitcher) and owns a negative Hd-Sft% against both right and left handed pitchers. Heyward's 79.5 MPH exit velocity over the past week is his worst mark for any week dating back to mid May.
