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.

The Reds traded Heisey to the Dodgers on Tuesday, Jerry Crasnick of reports.

Right-handed pitcher Matt Magill will go to Cincinnati in the deal, per Jon Heyman of Heisey wore out his welcome with the Reds by batting just .222/.265/.378 in 119 games (299 PA) last season. While this move just seems to further crowd the Dodgers' outfield situation, it is likely a precursor to other moves, though it still seems unlikely Heisey will serve as anything more than a reserve with his new club.

Heisey has continued to regress in 2014 after a down year in 2013, hitting just .222/.272/.356 in spot duty over 225 at-bats. Now 29 years old, we're no longer looking for Heisey to fulfill any untapped potential.

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.
