Heisey was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

The Dodgers need room on their 25-man roster for Mike Bolsinger, who was called up to start Tuesday's game against the Marlins. With the Dodgers having a deep collection of talent in the outfield, Heisey is unlikely to earn regular at-bats for the team at any point this season.

Heisey was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, Bill Shaikin of the LA Times reports.

Heisey was brought up to take the roster spot of Joe Wieland, who was optioned to Oklahoma City after making a spot start Wednesday.

Heisey will be called up for Thursday's game, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

He was in the clubhouse before Wednesday's game in advance of his activation. With Carl Crawford and Yasiel Puig on the 15-day DL, the Dodgers are not as deep as they typically are in the outfield. Heisey may not be up for long, and he probably won't see enough starts on a weekly basis to be useful in many formats.

Heisey will start in center field and bat sixth Wednesday against the Giants, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Heisey joined the team in San Francisco on Tuesday and was officially recalled Wednesday, as expected. He replaced reliever Adam Liberatore on the active roster. Joc Pederson will head to the bench against lefty Madison Bumgarner, affording Heisey an opportunity to start in his Dodgers debut, but his tenure with the big club may be short barring a trade.

This is a bit puzzling, as both Yasiel Puig (hamstring) and Carl Crawford (illness) are set to return to the lineup Tuesday. Perhaps the team just wants some security outfield depth in the short term. Heisey hit four home runs in his first 10 games (40 PA) with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Heisey agreed to a one-year, $2.16 million contract with the Dodgers on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Ken Gurnick of the Dodgers' official site reports.

Heisey was traded from the Reds to the Dodgers in early December after a disappointing 2013 season in which he hit .222/.265/.378 with eight home runs and 22 RBI. He should provid esome depth in the outfield for the Dodgers in 2015, but may have to battle for a roster spot out of training camp.
