Heisey was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, David Vassegh of 570 AM LA Sports reports.

Given the crowded Dodgers outfield, it's not a big surprise that Heisey will return to the minors. The veteran outfielder went just 4-for-26 over 17 games with the Dodgers, and will now provide organizational depth at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Heisey was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, and he's in the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies, AM 570's David Vassegh reports.

According to Vassegh, Scott Van Slyke (undisclosed) is likely headed for the disabled list, creating a need for another outfielder on the roster. Heisey has a .234/.354/.574 slash line for Triple-A Oklahoma City this season, and while he possesses a decent combination of power and speed, he doesn't figure to see regular at-bats.

Heisey was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, the Orange County Register's Bill Plunkett reports.

This was a bit of a surprise move, as Yasmani Grandal was activated from the DL on Saturday but the Dodgers opted to keep three catchers on the roster. Heisey will return to offering organizational outfield depth at Triple-A.

Heisey was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Heisey will be up for his third stint with the major league club this season with right-hander Sergio Santos designated for assignment. The 30-year-old Heisey has hit 10 home runs in 28 games with Oklahoma City so far this season, but he made a combined 10 plate appearances in his first two stints with Los Angeles and his opportunities figure to be limited again this time around given the Dodgers' outfield depth.

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. The Dodgers' outfield is still crowded even with Carl Crawford and Yasiel Puig on the disabled list, so his playing time figures to be minimal, and come mainly against left-handers.

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 has been optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City after spending one day on the roster, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

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.

Heisey was was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

With both Yasiel Puig and Carl Crawford returning to the lineup Tuesday after dealing with minor ailments, it appears the team is simply seeking extra outfield depth. Reliever Adam Liberatore was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move Wednesday.
