Less than a month after signing Chris Heisey to a minor-league deal, the Toronto Blue Jays have traded the outfielder to the Dodgers for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
The Blue Jays signed the 30-year-old Heisey on Aug. 12, shortly after he was released by the Dodgers. Heisey was sent to triple-A Buffalo to be assessed as a possible depth option in the outfield for the Blue Jays.
Heisey hit .155/.269/.259 with two home runs in 17 games for the Bisons.
In 17 games with the Dodgers earlier this season, the right-handed batter had four hits and eight walks in 34 plate appearances.
With MLB rosters expanding on Tuesday, the Blue Jays bolstered their outfield depth by calling up prospect Dalton Pompey.
