You may have noticed that Jason Heyward was not in the lineup for tonight’s match up against the Pirates in Pittsburgh. Taking his place in right field is Matt Szczur. He was reportedly held out due to having a sore wrist (ESPN). We have not heard what caused the soreness, only that Joe Maddon has said that it’s nothing serious.

We’ll update you as soon as we hear anything else but for now it doesn’t seem like this is anything to be overly concerned about.
