John Fay has a pretty good profile of Chris Heisey today. Heisey is an interesting case. He played at a small college and wasn’t highly touted, but he’s been nothing but good since his career as a professional began.
Most people think Heisey’s ceiling will be as a good fourth outfielder, or a starting outfielder on a bad team. Maybe that’s true; all I know Heisey is a hitter, and he plays good defense, to boot.
I don’t think Heisey will make this team out of spring training, but the more I think about it, the more I like the idea of a Heisey/Chris Dickerson platoon in left field. That might be a productive pairing. I just hope Dusty doesn’t get confused by having two guys named “Chris” playing the same position. I worry about things like that.
