Twins released OF Chris Heisey.
Heisey asked for his release and was granted it after failing to make the Twins' Opening Day roster. The 33-year-old had a rough spring, batting just .161 with eight strikeouts over 31 Grapefruit League at-bats. Look for him to catch on elsewhere as minor league depth. Mar 22 - 4:24 PM

Twins signed OF Chris Heisey to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Heisey, 33, missed time with groin and biceps injuries last year while batting .162/.215/.270 over 79 plate appearances with the Nationals. He'll try to win a job as a right-handed bat off the bench in the spring.

Nationals activated OF Chris Heisey from the 10-day disabled list; released him.

The Nats needed to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Erick Fedde. Heisey landed on the DL a week ago with a groin injury and was already playing through a ruptured right biceps, so the club determined the likelihood of him contributing again this season was remote.

Nationals placed OF Chris Heisey on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left groin.

Heisey was injured while legging out a triple Saturday. He's had a rough go of it with injuries, as he just returned earlier this month from a ruptured right biceps.

Chris Heisey left Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with a groin injury.

He went 1-for-4 with a triple and a walk before being replaced in left field by Ryan Raburn in the ninth inning. With Heisey banged up and Raburn going on bereavement leave after tonight's game, the short-handed Nats may have to make a roster move. The Nats were expected to call up catcher Pedro Severino to replace Raburn but perhaps they'll look to add an outfielder now.

Chris Heisey (biceps) suffered an apparent setback, as his minor-league rehab assignment has been halted.

Heisey started a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Harrisburg on Monday, less than a week after he suffered his injury. "He might have rushed it some," manager Dusty Baker said on Friday. "I thought (that he was playing) was a miracle in the first place. We'll see. His arm was black and blue, which is to be expected. We'll just have to re-evaluate things."

Chris Heisey (biceps) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with Double-A Harrisburg.

It's a rapid turnaround for Heisey, who suffered a right biceps rupture while taking a dry swing during batting practice last week. He doesn't need surgery and will attempt to play through it. The plan calls for him to stay in Double-A through Wednesday before being re-evaluated.

An MRI has revealed that Chris Heisey suffered a complete right biceps rupture.

However, Heisey has been told he doesn't need surgery and can't do any more damage to the tendon, so he's going to attempt to play through it. It's unclear when he might be activated.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said that Chris Heisey suffered his right biceps rupture while taking a dry swing in batting practice on Wednesday.

The Nationals placed Heisey on the disabled list earlier on Wednesday, but it was not initially clear just how he ruptured his bicep. Apparently, batting practice was the culprit. Heisey said that surgery is one potential option, though an exact course of action has not yet been determined. An MRI on Thursday should help to clarify matters. While no timetable has been laid out for his return as of yet, he is going to miss significant time.

Nationals placed OF Chris Heisey on the 10-day disabled list with a right bicep rupture.

Ouch. As of yet, there is no timetable for Heisey's return, but this is one that could potentially cost him a large chunk of the season. In 47 at-bats prior to suffering the injury, the veteran outfielder was slashing just .128/.180/.213. Count this as a depth blow for the Nationals.
