LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers after Monday night's win over the Marlins optioned outfielder Chris Heisey to Triple-A Oklahoma City. The move is to clear room on the active roster for Mike Bolsinger, who will be recalled from Triple-A on Tuesday to start the second game of the series.
Heisey was recalled Thursday when the Dodgers were in Milwaukee, and played twice in the last five days, including one start, going 1-for-3 with four walks and two runs scored. Heisey in three games this season for the Dodgers is 1-for-5 with five walks and two strikeouts.
With his two stints with the Dodgers this season, Heisey now has four years, 163 days of major league service time. That is nine days shy of the five years of service time that would allow him the right to refuse any minor league assignment.
The 30-year-old outfielder, making $2.16 million this season, is hitting .246/.356/.607 with a team-leading seven home runs for Oklahoma City.
Once Bolsinger is recalled on Tuesday, the Dodgers will again have 13 pitchers and 12 position players.
