Jason Heyward was out of the lineup for a second game in a row Tuesday, after being hit in the left foot by a pitch Sunday. This time it was the manager's decision. "I let [Fredi Gonzalez] know before we got here that I wanted to play," Heyward said before batting practice Tuesday. "He said he'd like for me to take another day, just to make sure. So I'm going to do everything today and run around on it, and play [Wednesday]." On Monday, Heyward was in the lineup until he went to Gonzalez after batting practice to tell the manager he couldn't push off properly when running in the outfield.
Heyward expected back in lineup Wednesday
