Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward has been activated from the disabled list and was in Chicago's starting lineup Tuesday against Tampa Bay.

Heyward has been out since June 18 with a hand injury. He was starting in right field and batting sixth Tuesday against the Rays.

To make room for Heyward on the roster, Chicago optioned infielder Jeimer Candelario and right-hander Felix Pena to Triple-A Iowa. The Cubs also promoted left-hander Jack Leathersich from Iowa.
