Cubs OF Jason Heyward ready to return

CHICAGO (AP) Outfielder Jason Heyward is ready to return the Chicago Cubs' lineup.
Heyward expects to play Saturday against the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers after being sidelined for two weeks because of a sore knuckle on his right hand.
He was hurt May 5 against the New York Yankees and placed on the 10-day disabled list three days later. Heyward is hitting .253 with three homers and 17 RBIs.
With Heyward coming back, manager Joe Maddon acknowledged the Cubs have a ''very tough'' decision to make. Do they send surging rookie Ian Happ back to the minors or someone else?
Happ, the No. 9 overall draft pick in 2015, was 6 for 17 with two homers and four RBIs entering Friday's game. He was called up from Triple-A Iowa on May 13.
