Outfielder Jason Heyward is currently the biggest name left in free agency, and it looks like he's ready to choose between his reported shortlist of the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles AngelsSt. Louis Cardinals and Washington Nationals.

According to a source cited by St. Louis Post Dispatch writer Derrick Gould, it looks like the Cubs have a fantastic shot of signing Heyward away from the home-standing Cardinals.

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, both the Cardinals and Nationals are "discouraged" about the way the Heyward bidding war is going:

In fact, the Cardinals may in fact be completely out on Heyward.

There hasn't been much lately to come out involving the Angels' chase for Heyward, but all signs seem to be pointing to the Chicago Cubs as a prohibitive favorite.

Heyward, 26, posted a .293/.359/.439 slash line with 13 home runs and 60 RBI for the Cardinals in 2015 (154 games). He also won a Gold Glove award this year for his work in right field -- the third of his career.

Stay tuned for more information as it's made available.
