The latest Xavier Paul MLB and fantasy baseball news

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.

Cincinnati Reds OFs Xavier Paul and Derrick Robinson may figure into the left field mix with OF Ryan Ludwick (shoulder) out for three months. Manager Dusty Baker said OF Chris Heisey will play every day and will get the opportunity to prove he belongs.
Fantasy Tip: Heisey is the only name that is fantasy relevant in this mix. Avery or Robinson could receive a start here or there to rest Heisey, but it's not enough to warrant fantasy baseball consideration, even in NL leagues.
