Dodgers purchased the contract of OF Chris Heisey from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Heisey was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on April 23 after spending just one day in the major leagues. And this probably won't be an extended stay either.
May 7 - 11:26 AM

Dodgers designated OF Chris Heisey for assignment.

Heisey was only in the majors for one day to give Joc Pederson a breather in center field. The 30-year-old is likely to clear waivers given his $2.16 million salary, so expect him to remain in the Dodgers' organization.
Apr 23 - 12:06 PM

Dodgers recalled OF Chris Heisey from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Heisey will start in center field Wednesday night against Giants ace Madison Bumgarner, giving Joc Pederson a day of rest. Heisey probably won't be up in the majors for very long given the crowd in the Los Angeles outfield. He is not fantasy relevant.
Apr 22 - 4:05 PM

Chris Heisey will be recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

He's already in the Dodgers' clubhouse Tuesday but revealed that he won't officially be promoted until Wednesday. It's not clear at this point whose roster spot Heisey will take.
Apr 21 - 7:17 PM

Dodgers optioned OF Chris Heisey to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He batted just .102/.167/.245 this spring, and that was enough to cost him a roster despite his experience. Heisey will spend plenty of time in the majors this season, especially if the Dodgers finally trade Andre Ethier.
Apr 5 - 8:14 AM

Chris Heisey blasted his second home run of the Cactus League season, accounting for all of the Dodgers' offense in a loss to the White Sox.

It wasn't a cheap home run either, and came off White Sox top prospect Carlos Rodon. He's having a rough go of it at the plate this spring, hitting just .111 (5-for-44) with two homers and seven RBI. He's still expected to earn a bench spot on the team's Opening Day roster.
Mar 31 - 9:23 PM

Dodgers and OF Chris Heisey avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.16 million contract.

Heisey was arbitration-eligible for a second time this offseason. He'll serve as an extra outfielder for the Dodgers after being acquired from the Reds in a trade last month.
Jan 15 - 8:40 PM

Dodgers acquired OF Chris Heisey from the Reds in exchange for RHP Matt Magill.

There was a chance Heisey was going to be non-tendered, so the Reds decided to get what they could for him. He's showed some pop in spurts, but Heisey's performance has tailed off steadily the last few seasons, bottoming out with a .222/.265/.378 line in 2014. He's not going to see much playing time in the loaded Dodgers outfield.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Dodgers have acquired Chris Heisey from the Reds via trade.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says the Reds will receive Matt Magill in return. The Dodgers are already loaded with outfielders, so this could be the first of multiple moves for them. Heisey, who is in his second year of arbitration this offseason, batted .222/.265/.378 with eight homers over 299 plate appearances for the Reds in 2014. He'll back up at all three outfield spots.

Chris Heisey went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

Heisey got the start in right field with Jay Bruce struggling, and he delivered a two-run single to pad the Reds' lead in the eighth inning. He had just two hits and one RBI in September coming into the game. Heisey has had a subpar year as a part-time player with the Reds this year, batting .230/.274/.399 with 21 RBI overall.

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.

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.
Tue, Jul 8, 2014 04:37:00 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.
Tue, May 20, 2014 12:36:00 AM

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.
