Chris Heisey has elected free agency.

Heisey refused an outright assignment by the Dodgers and will look for a gig elsewhere. He hit a disappointing .182/.347/.327 in 33 games for Los Angeles this season.

Chris Heisey hit a grand slam in Thursday afternoon's 6-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

After Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin got into a sticky spot, he was relieved of duty in the fifth inning. That sticky spot then lit on fire, as reliever Andrew Chafin proceeded to walk A.J. Ellis to load the bases before Heisey stepped up to unload them for the grand salami. The home run was his first of the season, proving that timing really is everything. He's 9-for-52 since joining the Dodgers on September 1.

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

Heisey is back with the Dodgers after a brief detour to Toronto. He'll provide outfield depth with Yasiel Puig (hamstring) and Enrique Hernandez (hamstring) hurt.

Dodgers acquired OF Chris Heisey from the Blue Jays for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Heisey signed with the Blue Jays last month after the Dodgers released him, but now he's back with the organization. The 30-year-old is 4-for-26 (.154) in 17 games at the major league level this season. The Dodgers said in their announcement that the deal was done Monday night (before the August 31 waiver deadline), which means that he would be eligible for the postseason.

Dodgers released OF Chris Heisey.

Heisey was removed from the 40-man roster last week and is now out of the organization altogether. The 30-year-old hit only .154/.353/.192 in 17 games with the Dodgers this season and batted .236/.355/.481 with 14 homers at Triple-A.

Dodgers designated OF Chris Heisey for assignment.

Like Brandon Beachy, Heisey became a roster casualty due to the massive three-team trade with the Marlins and Braves. While the 30-year-old outfielder struggled in his limited action with the big league club this year, he should attract interest on waivers and could be flipped elsewhere.

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

Heisey continues to shuttle back and forth between Oklahoma City and Los Angeles anytime the team requires an extra outfielder. He should be back with the big league club before long.

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

Heisey was just sent down over the weekend, but he's back now that Scott Van Slyke is headed to the disabled list. The 30-year-old is 1-for-9 (.111) with five walks over five games with the Dodgers this season. He's starting in right field for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

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

Heisey has gone 1-for-9 with five walks in three stints with the Dodgers this season. That's good for an unusual .111/.429/.111 line.
Sat, May 30, 2015 03:27:00 PM

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

Heisey has been up and down all season and probably won't play enough to carry fantasy relevance in NL-only leagues. His longest stay in the majors this year lasted five days.
Wed, May 27, 2015 04:19:00 PM

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

The move clears a spot for the Dodgers to recall Tuesday's starter, Mike Bolsinger, from Triple-A. Heisey has had two brief stints with the big club this season and should get another chance down the line.
Tue, May 12, 2015 07:55:00 AM

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.

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.
