LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Dodgers acquired outfielder Chris Heisey from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations in a minor league deal.
Heisey started the season with the Dodgers, appearing in 17 games for Los Angeles before being designated for assignment on July 30.
The 30-year-old Heisey combined to hit .218 with 16 homers and 39 RBIs in 80 games with the Dodgers' Triple-A Oklahoma City affiliate and Toronto's Triple-A Buffalo.
In six big league seasons, Heisey has a .246 batting average with 50 homers and 147 RBIs in 560 games for the Reds and Dodgers, while appearing at all three outfield positions.
The deal was announced Tuesday.
