CHICAGO — Chicago Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward left the Cubs' game against the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday afternoon due to injury. Getting replaced in center field by Albert Almora, Jr., Heyward was pulled after seeming to experience lower-body discomfort in his third-inning at-bat.

Heyward was able to finish out his plate appearance in the bottom of the third, in which he grounded out to first. During the at-bat, however, he fouled a ball straight down at the ground that appeared to then bounce up and make contact with his groin.

Despite exiting the batter's box and hobbling around after getting plucked in the groin, Heyward did not seem to be in significant pain and was able to battle through the discomfort and finish his at-bat. Hopefully, Heyward was taken out for precautionary reasons and will be fine moving forward.
