Heyward removed himself from the game after recording his fifth hit, a single in the eighth inning. He was seen hunched over at first base, grabbing his hamstring area.

Heyward, who had been under the weather recently, later said he left the game after cramping "all over"

"Obviously it’s hot, and that has nothing to do with me, but it’s really tough to stay hydrated when you’re not feeling well," Heyward said, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

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 hit in his fifth straight game and had his third multi-hit game in a row. He's 8 for his last 14. 

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.


Cardinals OF Jason Heyward goes yard against Twins


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. 

Heyward's solo shot was the first run of the game and gave St. Louis a lead. The Twins would get solo homers in the bottom of the eighth and ninth innings to win the game. Heyward finished the game 1 for 3. 

Heyward is now hitting .303 in his past 10 games. For the season, Heyward holds a line of .260/.302/.397.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Cardinals OF Jason Heyward dealing with hip tightness


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward was forced to miss Saturday's game against the Royals while battling hip tightness, manager Mike Matheny said per FOXSports.com.

Heyward felt his hip tighten up on Friday, but should be available to pinch hit, according to Matheny. He will likely return to the lineup on Sunday.

"I think it just kind of tightened up as the game went on," Matheny said. "I don't think there was one independent action that caused it. We'll keep an eye on him."

Heyward is hitting .238 with 12 RBI in 151 at-bats this season.


Cardinals OF Jason Heyward sits for third time in eight games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward was held out of the starting lineup Saturday against the Royals for the third time in eight games. Randal Grichuk started in right field for St. Louis.

However, unlike the last two times when a left-handed starter was on the hill, Heyward sat against right-handed Edison Volquez on Saturday. Left-hander Danny Duffy was originally scheduled to start Saturday before being scratched Friday due to injury, so Heyward's absence Saturday could have already been pre-planned.

Still, Heyward is actually hitting better against lefties than righties in 2015. He has a .350/.500/.922 slash line in 27 games against left-handers, while he has a .198/.333/.577 slash line in 38 games against right-handers. 

Heyward has a .217/.435/.709 slash line in his last 13 games.
