Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times and Ken Rosenthal both report that the Dodgers acquired Chris Heisey from the Toronto Blue Jays last night for a Player to be Names Later or cash.
If you’re surprised about this deal because you believed Heisey to already be a member of the Dodgers, well, that makes two of us. I had missed, as I’m sure most people who aren’t senior officers in the Chris Heisey fan club, that the Dodgers released him in early August, allowing him to sign with the Jays. He played 17 games for Triple-A Buffalo and now he’s heading back to Los Angeles. Where he played 17 games with the Dodgers earlier this season, playing all three outfield positions.
Heisey hasn’t hit much in, oh, the past four years or so, but with Kiké Hernandez on the disabled list, they could use the warm body.
