  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Not starting Tuesday

    Heyward is not in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Heyward has started in three games since returning from the injured list Friday. He has recorded two hits, one of which was a home run, across 11 plate appearances in those games. With the right fielder taking a seat Tuesday, Teoscar Hernandez moves to right field and Miguel Vargas enters the lineup in left field.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Homers in return

    Heyward went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a hit-by-pitch in Friday's 7-3 win over the Reds.

    Heyward returned from a back injury that cost him nearly seven weeks. He delivered a big hit with his eighth-inning blast, which was his first homer in five games this season. The outfielder has added four RBI and four runs scored. Heyward is likely to command at least a strong-side platoon role in right field, which he excelled at with a .269/.340/.473 slash line over 374 plate appearances in 2023.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Back in starting lineup

    Heyward (back) is starting in right field and batting eighth in Friday's game against the Reds, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Heyward appeared in just five games for the Dodgers before landing on the 10-day injured list April 3 due to lower-back tightness, going 3-for-14 with two RBI. It took about a month for the 34-year-old to return to baseball activities, and he appeared in two games with Triple-A Oklahoma City earlier this week, going 0-for-6 with one walk and two strikeouts.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Return imminent

    Heyward (back) rejoined the Dodgers on Thursday but was not activated from the injured list, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Heyward began a rehab assignment Tuesday and appeared in two games with Triple-A Oklahoma City, during which he went 0-for-6. Manager Dave Roberts said Heyward is ready to return soon, so it's likely he'll be activated at some point during the Dodgers' weekend series against the Reds.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Rehab assignment Tuesday

    Heyward (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Given that Andy Pages is hitting .300 with an .850 OPS while being a defensive positive in right field, Heyward may be coming back to a bench role, or the Dodgers could demote James Outman (-0.1 fWAR) to Triple-A to make room. Heyward will play in rehab games Tuesday and Wednesday before being evaluated.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Takes batting practice

    Heyward (back) took batting practice on the field prior to Saturday's game against Atlanta, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Hewyard was cleared to begin baseball activities Friday, and Saturday marked the first time he has taken batting practice since landing on the injured list April 3. The veteran outfielder still doesn't have a clear return timeline, but he may move onto simulated games if his back is able to hold up after a few rounds of BP.

  • Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Begins baseball activities

    Heyward (back) ran at full speed Friday and began swinging a bat, J.P. Hoornstra of DodgersNation.com reports.

    Heyward landed on the 10-day IL on April 3 due to lower back tightness. The injury persisted well past his return window, and Friday marked the first time that the veteran outfielder has participated in any sort of baseball activities. The Dodgers will have a better idea of a timeline for his return once they see how Heyward's back responds to his most recent work.
