by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/10/2015) The Cardinals and outfielder Jason Heyward, who is scheduled to be a free agent this offseason, have reportedly not had any significant discussions regarding a possible contract extension. There doesn't appear to be much pressure from either side to get a deal done, with the focus being on making the playoffs and winning a championship.

"At this point, I think both sides are OK with that, OK with where things are right now," Heyward said, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "Both sides want to make sure everybody is happy. That’s really what they’ve been asking me about the whole time. 'Hey, you like it here? Hey, you comfortable?' They want to make sure I feel at home, make sure I can be myself, and that’s been their focus. They’ve allowed me the time to fit in. That has meant a lot."

Heyward got off to a slow start in his first season with the Cardinals, but has been much better lately. Over the past month, he has seen his batting average rise from .276 to its current .286 mark. He is hitting .342 (13 for 38) over his past 10 games.

Cardinals' Jason Heyward thriving offensively following slow start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) After a shaky first month with the Cardinals, outfielder Jason Heyward seems to have found his footing offensively. Since May 1, he is batting .313 with a .352 on-base percentage, .473 slugging percentage and .825 OPS.

Heyward has really been on his game offensively in June, batting .355 with a .516 slugging percentage and .885 OPS in 18 games.

“He was trying to (1) make an impression on his new team and (2) still trying to figure out the kind of hitter he wants to be," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said of Heyward's slow start, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "And you always have free agency hanging over your shoulder. There are a lot of things going on all at once and it looks to me like he got rid of some of the clutter. He’s out there just being a pure athlete, which he is.”

Matheny also gives a lot of credit to hitting coaches John Mabry and Bill Mueller.

“Those two guys really get the art of hitting,” Matheny said. “There’s a lot of (coaches) who have a pretty good idea of mechanical hitting. But these guys get people.

“Right from the beginning, they weren’t shoving anything down Jason Heyward’s throat, saying, ‘This is what you have to do.’ They let him come in and show what he’d been working on and then started building a reputation with him and made themselves available. And that takes time to build that trust."


Jason Heyward homers in three-hit game for Cardinals


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2015) Cardinals right fielder Jason Heyward went 3 for 4 in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.

Heyward also hit a solo home run in the ninth inning, his seventh of the year and 23rd RBI. 


Cardinals RF Jason Heyward earns cleanup role with hot hitting


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2015) Cardinals right fielder Jason Heyward landed in the cleanup spot Saturday for the first time this season. He earned it.

Heyward has batted .345 since May 26. His .271 average after slamming three hits in the game is at its highest point since April 11. He is batting .500 (8-for-16) over the last four games.

In other words, all is well.

"I felt my swing [earlier in the year] wasn't necessarily a bad swing ... it was my timing," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "It still doesn't mean you're going to get hits every night but it's probably the best I've felt all year."

Heyward has been slamming pitches to right recently, which has resulted in greater power despite having him just one home run since May 27.

"That means you're comfortably on time and you're able to get those pitches out in front of the (strike) zone, versus letting the ball get on top of you," he said.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2015) Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward hit a solo home run in the top of the seventh inning of Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Twins.
