Reds | Chris Heisey raking

Cincinnati Reds OF Chris Heisey went 2-for-3 with a home run and a double Saturday, March 15. He's hitting .412 with a 1.000 slugging percentage this spring. Heisey said he got a boost when he worked with New York Mets minor-league OF Joe Tuschak this offseason. "He has his hands real low," Heisey said. "He looks real relaxed. That's kind of what I've been trying to get to -- a place where I could be relaxed and loose."

Fantasy Tip: Heisey said he had a history of tinkering with his stance in the big leagues, but this one looks like a keeper. Heisey is Cincy's fourth outfielder, but with potential Billy Hamilton struggles at the plate and Ryan Ludwick's injury history and advanced age, Heisey could easily find 300 to 400 productive at-bats even as a reserve. He's a fine NL-only speculation and someone to watch post-draft in mixed leagues.
