Chris Heisey OF CIN 6 Months

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.

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.

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 hit his seventh home run, a two-run shot, in the loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Heisey now has seven home runs in limited duty this season. After a 2011 season in which he hit 18 home runs in just 279 at-bats it seemed as though he could evolve into an everyday player, but he was a part-time player last year and is batting just .218/.266/.402 this year. The 28-year-old is a non-factor in fantasy.

Chris Heisey went 2-for-3 with a walk, home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a 5-3 triumph against the Pirates on Friday.

Heisey is 4-for-11 (.363) in three games since returning from a sore elbow last Thursday. The 28-year-old has posted a .229/.272/.448 slash line with five homers over 105 at-bats in 2013.

Chris Heisey went 1-for-4 with a single in his return to action Thursday.

Heisey's left elbow is still a little sore from being hit by a pitch Tuesday, but it's not a big deal. He should be fine going forward.

X-rays on Chris Heisey's left elbow came back negative.

Heisey had to leave Tuesday's game after being plunked, but it sounds like he just has a bruise. Consider him day-to-day.

Chris Heisey left Tuesday's game against the Brewers after being hit by a pitch in the second inning.

The Reds should provide an update on his status later Tuesday. Derrick Robinson took Heisey's place in left field.

Chris Heisey went 2-for-3 with a homer against the Brewers on Monday.

Heisey has collected hits in five of his six starts since he came off the DL on June 25, and all but one of those hits have gone for extra bases (two homers, four doubles). It looks like he's overtaking Derrick Robinson and Xavier Paul for playing time in left field, so he's a nice option in NL-only leagues, at least until Ryan Ludwick returns.
