RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

By most measures, Heisey's 2012 campaign was a disappointment. Despite a small boost in playing time, Heisey's power dropped off considerably, while his plate discipline actually worsened. What started out as a timeshare with Ryan Ludwick evolved into Ludwick's job full-time in left field, with Heisey trying to pick up the spare start scraps at all three outfield spots. He really could benefit from being on a team where he got all of the platoon at-bats against left-handers, who he hit pretty well against in limited action. Otherwise, his playing time is going to remain unstable.

2012

While Heisey had his moments in the sun in 2011, the movement to "Free Chris Heisey" was only partially fulfilled. Jonny Gomes was eventually dealt and Fred Lewis demoted, but in their place came Yonder Alonso and Dave Sappelt to take away time in left field. As much as Heisey's power and defense are interesting, he probably benefits the most with the Reds' decision to trade Alonso to the Padres. The addition of Ryan Ludwick all but guarantees Heisey will sit against left-handed starters, but he could still provide cheap power as part of a platoon in left field and occasional replacement for Drew Stubbs in center.

2011

Heisey came back to earth after a 2009 breakout season that saw him climb three minor league levels, but he still held his own as the Reds' fourth outfielder in his rookie season. He excelled in a pinch-hitting role with the team, hitting .348/.448/.957 with four of his eight total homers. Look for him to get a little bit more playing time in left field than he did in 2010, whenever the Reds opt to prioritize his defense ahead of Jonny Gomes.

2010

Heisey progressed from a middling prospect to one towards the top of the Reds' food chain in 2009, blowing up at Double-A Carolina before holding his own at Triple-A Louisville and later in the Arizona Fall League. His short-term problem is that the Reds have a slew of candidates to fill the left-field slot that will probably get a shot before Heisey, but it wouldn't hurt him developmentally or the Reds financially to have him spend three months in Triple-A Louisville. Look for a midseason callup.
