The Chicago Cubs put outfielder Jason Heyward on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left hamstring strain.
The club recalled Nick Martini from Triple-A Iowa and put him in the starting lineup playing right field in Thursday’s series finale against the Washington Nationals.
Heyward left Wednesday night’s game after making a sliding catch. The issue is reportedly on the mild side.
Heyward, 31, is batting just .183 in 39 games this season with four home runs and 13 RBIs.
Martini is 1-for-5 in five games for the Cubs this season.
