Chris Heisey clubbed a solo homer in Saturday's loss to the Yankees.
It was the only offense of the day for the Reds. Heisey didn't play much in June, but he's hitting .355 (11-for-31) with two home runs and two doubles this month. He's worth a try where available in deeper formats. Jul 19 - 4:08 PM

Chris Heisey went 3-for-3 with a walk, a run scored, and a stolen base Tuesday against the Cubs.

The three hits tied a season-high. Heisey had just three hits in his last 29 at-bats coming into Tuesday's action, so this was nice to see. Still, he'll need to string together more performances like this one to get increase playing time.
Jul 8 - 4:37 PM

Chris Heisey doubled three times and walked in seven plate appearances against the Nationals on Monday.

The Reds have often picked Skip Schumaker over Heisey as Jay Bruce's replacement lately, though they could certainly use Heisey's power in the lineup with their best slugger missing. Still, it's not like Heisey was making much of a case for playing time: he entered the day with a .175 average and no RBI in 40 at-bats this month.

Chris Heisey delivered a walkoff RBI single in the Reds' 1-0 defeat of the Cardinals on Wednesday.

A three-hour rain delay gave way to an outstanding pitchers' duel between Tony Cingrani and Michael Wacha -- two exciting young National League Central starters. The game was tied 0-0 when Heisey came on as a pinch-hitter with the bases loaded and punched a ball into left field, past the Cardinals' five-infielder setup. Heisey is capable of hitting his way into more playing time but for now he's not really fantasy-relevant.
Apr 3 - 12:45 AM

Chris Heisey blasted his league-leading sixth Cactus League homer on Friday, powering the Reds to a 9-3 win over the Royals.

He finished the afternoon 2-for-3, also tripling and scoring a run. With Ryan Ludwick struggling, Heisey could see considerable playing time in left field early in the season, and could be worth a look in the later rounds of mixed league drafts.
Mar 21 - 10:34 PM

Chris Heisey went 2-for-3 with his spring training-leading fifth home run Saturday.

Heisey is hitting a scorching .412 and raised his RBI total to 11. The outfielder doesn’t currently have a starting job – Ryan Ludwick is considered the starting left fielder for the Reds – but Heisey might be forcing the issue with his scalding spring.
Mar 15 - 7:21 PM

Chris Heisey went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run against the Dodgers on Thursday.

Heisey took Paul Maholm deep in the third inning, his fourth of the spring. He has been on absolute fire in the Cactus League. Still, playing time will be hard to come by for Heisey as he is outranked by four other outfielders on the Reds' roster.
Mar 13 - 6:44 PM

Chris Heisey paced the Reds offensive attack with a pair of homers on Friday, powering the Reds to a 10-9 victory over the Mariners.

The veteran outfielder has now knocked three balls over the boards early in Cactus League play where he's hitting .316 (6-for-19). He's a fine reserve outfielder, but won't hold much in the way of fantasy value unless injury strikes in the Reds outfield.
Mar 7 - 9:31 PM

Chris Heisey doubled and hit a two-run homer in three at-bats Wednesday against the Indians.

Hard to ask for a better spring opener. Heisey homered off of C.C. Lee in the seventh, then doubled off of Preston Guilmet in the ninth. Heisey's numbers have been in decline since 2011, but he is hoping a strong spring will result in a spot on the Reds' bench as a back-up outfielder.
Feb 26 - 6:28 PM

Reds and OF Chris Heisey avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.76 million contract.

Heisey, who was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter, hit .237/.279/.415 with nine home runs and 23 RBI over 244 plate appearances last season. He'll get a slight raise from the $1.325 million he made in 2013. The 29-year-old will function as a reserve outfielder and right-handed bench bat for Cincinnati in 2014.
Jan 16 - 5:59 PM

Chris Heisey busted out of his slump by going 3-for-5 with two RBI and three runs scored on Sunday.

Heisey could be the odd-man out the rest of the way due to Billy Hamilton's emergence in the Reds outfield, but he made his presence known today with Shin-Soo Choo absent. It was just his second start since Sept. 8. He had been 0-for-20 since going 4-for-4 on Sept. 1.

Chris Heisey hit his seventh home run, a two-run shot, in the loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Heisey now has seven home runs in limited duty this season. After a 2011 season in which he hit 18 home runs in just 279 at-bats it seemed as though he could evolve into an everyday player, but he was a part-time player last year and is batting just .218/.266/.402 this year. The 28-year-old is a non-factor in fantasy.

Chris Heisey went 2-for-3 with a walk, home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a 5-3 triumph against the Pirates on Friday.

Heisey is 4-for-11 (.363) in three games since returning from a sore elbow last Thursday. The 28-year-old has posted a .229/.272/.448 slash line with five homers over 105 at-bats in 2013.
Fri, Jul 19, 2013 10:45:00 PM

Chris Heisey went 1-for-4 with a single in his return to action Thursday.

Heisey's left elbow is still a little sore from being hit by a pitch Tuesday, but it's not a big deal. He should be fine going forward.
Fri, Jul 12, 2013 08:22:00 AM

X-rays on Chris Heisey's left elbow came back negative.

Heisey had to leave Tuesday's game after being plunked, but it sounds like he just has a bruise. Consider him day-to-day.
