Jason Heyward News

Jason Heyward    OF  Cubs

 

 

New Cubs hitting coach Chili Davis has been working "at least weekly" with Jason Heyward in Arizona since November. Heyward is entering Year Three of his eight-year, $184 million contract with the Cubs. While he saw some slight improvement in 2017 (.631 OPS to a .715 OPS), his offensive contributions have obviously been well short of expectations. "I need to learn Jason more than Jason needs to learn me," said Davis. "We’ve talked a lot about his swing, and we’ve looked at videos. But I think more what Jason and I are trying to do is to get Jason to understand the type of hitter that will make him the best offensive player that he can be." A hitting coach can only do so much, but Cubs president Theo Epstein said that Davis works well with line drive hitters and believes they "have a good chance to mesh."

Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said Tuesday that the team is not shopping Jason Heyward. There was some chatter last week that the Giants and Cubs might be working on something involving Heyward, but it sounds like no actual discussions ever took place. "That whole rumor was out of nowhere with zero base for truth," Hoyer said. "I think Jason has done a great job for us on defense, in the clubhouse, on the bases. He hasn’t been offensively where he was before getting to us, but he’ll get there. He’ll keep working hard. There is no point in going into hypotheticals." Heyward has batted just .243/.315/.353 in 268 games since signing an eight-year, $184 million contract with Chicago, but he has also earned two Gold Glove Awards in two seasons.
