Jason Heyward made a sliding catch in right field Wednesday evening and an inning later left the game with what was reported as a hamstring issue.

Today, that has forced him to the injured list:

Here's an update on Heyward’s status:

Martini has played in five games for the Cubs this year, going 1-for-5. He'll be in this afternoon's starting lineup in right field, as Kris Bryant has been given a scheduled day off.

Hopefully this won't be serious for Heyward and he can return after the 10-day stint.

Today's game preview will post at 11:30 am CT.
