Jason Heyward has struggled to get his bat going this season, and a stretch of four left-handed starters in five games was no help. So Gonzalez sat Heyward Sunday against left-hander Jonathan Sanchez, something he'd planned a day ahead. Heyward is 3-for-25 against left-handers this season while batting only 121 overall. Heyward acknowledged Sunday morning he's had moments of trying to do too much.
