Jason Heyward Passing Tests, But Still Dealing With Fatigue

Chicago Cubs

The good news is that Jason Heyward did not hit the Injured List today when the Cubs made roster moves, even though he’s not in the starting lineup again.

The other good news is that he’s passing the tests on the big picture health stuff so far (whatever that includes), though he’s still dealing with fatigue:

On the whole, I wouldn’t expect to see Heyward tonight, even in a late-game defense or pinch-hitting situation if he’s still feeling fatigued. If the Cubs are still waiting on at least one test, I wonder if Heyward is even going to be at the park tonight.

In any case, let’s just keep hoping all the tests come up clear, and Heyward was just dealing with some kind of short-term, minor illness. You can’t be too cautious this year, and whenever he’s able to return, you just want Heyward to feel at his best.
