What is Jason Heyward's approach to extension talks and free agency?

It's seemingly a bit different from Albert Pujols's in 2011. When St. Louis acquired Jason Heyward and Jordan Walden from the Atlanta Braves in exchange for starter Shelby Miller and pitching prospect Tyrell Jenkins, the Cardinals filled a hole in right field left by the death of Oscar Taveras—for at least 2015. Heyward is entering his sixth season as a big-leaguer and is consequently only under contract for the coming season. Shortly after the trade was finalized, Craig opined that the Cardinals should rush to sign Heyward to an extension. Aaron made a bet with the folks at our SBN...

Bernie: What the Cards need from Jason Heyward

The Cards' new right fielder plays exceptional defense, and that forms much of his value. But the team needs robust offense from Heyward in 2015.

How has Jason Heyward batted vs. lefthanded pitchers post-beaning?

Inspired by commentary from ESPN's Mark Simon while he was a guest on a radio show, we took a look on Saturday at whether getting beaned on August 21, 2013 by Jon Niese had impacted Jason Heyward's ability to handle inside pitches. That analysis looked at Heyward's pre- and post-beaning stats against all pitchers for two reasons: (1) The comparison included the largest number of pitches, swings, whiffs, and hits possible; and (2) It provides a point of comparison for analyzing Heyward's performance on inside pitches from lefties. First, a reminder about sample size. Rather than the...

Has getting beaned impacted Jason Heyward's hitting?

An examination of Jason Heyward's overall hitting performance pre- and post-beaning. On August 21, 2013, the Atlanta Braves squared off against the New York Mets at Citi Field. Lefty Jon Niese started for the Mets. Jason Heyward, who batted leadoff for the Braves that day, dug in against Niese with two outs in the top of the sixth and the Mets ahead 1-0. With Niese ahead 1-2 in the count, New York catcher John Buck called for a fastball on the inside corner. Niese threw the 90-mph heater Buck requested but missed his location badly, hitting Heyward in the face with the pitch. At MLB.com,...

On Jason Heyward batting second for the St. Louis Cardinals

All signs point toward Heyward hitting second for the 2015 Cardinals, and I am very happy with this idea. With the acquisition of new right fielder Jason Heyward, the top of the St. Louis Cardinals lineup is going to be especially dangerous in 2015. Heck, when you think about it, the middle and end will both pack some punch as well, but the top will especially. Though it can be argued that his hitting approach is better suited for the two-hole, Matt Carpenter will find his name written down on the lineup card as the team's leadoff hitter for the second opening day in a row. In an article...
