The Cincinnati Reds activated OF Chris Heisey (hamstring) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 25, and optioned OF Donald Lutz to the minors in a corresponding move. Also, INF Henry X. Rodriguez was called up.
Fantasy Tip: Heisey will likely go back to some sort of platoon role in left field, probably with some combination of Xavier Paul and Derrick Robinson. Heisey should be owned in all NL leagues, but should only be considered in deep mixed formats with deep outfield arrangements.

Cincinnati Reds OF Chris Heisey (hamstring) went 2-for-4 with Triple-A Louisville Monday, June 17, and will play again for Louisville Wednesday, June 19.
Fantasy Tip: Heisey seems close to returning to the Reds, which will likely mean Donald Lutz will be sent back to the minors. Heisey could split left field duties with Xavier Paul when he comes back. Because Heisey likely won't play every day when he's back, he's more of an NL-only commodity.

Cincinnati Reds OF Chris Heisey's (hamstring) hamstring setback isn't severe, but he won't be back any time soon. Heisey won't return until at least the team's next homestand, at the earliest.
Fantasy Tip: Xavier Paul has been starting in left field with Heisey out, and he'll continue to benefit from his absence. Donald Lutz, who was recalled when Heisey was initially injured, has been the first bat off the bench. Paul is an NL-only commodity, at best.

Cincinnati Reds OF Chris Heisey (hamstring) re-strained his hamstring and has been taken off his rehab assignment. He will return to Cincinnati to be re-evaluated, and the team doesn't know how serious his injury is.
Fantasy Tip: Xavier Paul and Donald Lutz will continue to benefit from Heisey being out a little longer. Both Paul and Lutz should be left for cavernous NL-only leagues.
