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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Thu, Mar 13, 2014 06:44:00 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.

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.
Wed, Feb 26, 2014 06:28:00 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.

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.
