Cubs OF Jason Heyward ready to return

By The Associated Press
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.
