Jason Heyward joined the Cubs’ low-A affiliate in South Bend for a rehab assignment Thursday evening. From all reports, things went well and we’re seeing word that Heyward will head back to Chicago tomorrow with the expectation of being activated Saturday. He hasn’t played since May 5 with a hand injury.
