Jason Heyward (hand) to be placed on 10-day disabled list

The Cubs will place Jason Heyward on the 10-day disabled list with a hand injury, according to Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago.

Fantasy Impact

Heyward has not played since Sunday, when he hurt his hand sliding to catch a foul ball against the Pirates. The injury appears minor, but with the new 10-day disabled list, teams are more apt to sideline players for minor injuries. Expect Heyward to be back shortly after he is eligible.

Jason Heyward (hand) out of the lineup Monday

Jason Heyward is out of the Cubs' lineup Monday against the Padres with a hand laceration. Jon Jay is playing RF and batting ninth in his place.

Fantasy Impact

Heyward suffered the injury Sunday against the Pirates, however it does not sound like a long term problem. Many hoped for a turn around for Heyward after an atrocious 2016 season, however with .258 AVG, six home runs, and one steal he just has not been good enough to have value in standard leagues. His .278 BABIP could indicate that Heyward has been unlucky, but with a meager 18.5% line drive rate and 27.4% hard contact rate show that Heyward is not making good contact when he hits the ball.
