Cincinnati Reds outfielder Chris Heisey exited last night’s contest against the Milwaukee Brewers after being hit by a pitch on the elbow by Wily Peralta in the second inning. X-rays taken following the HBP came back negative, but manager Dusty Baker told reporters – including Mark Sheldon of MLB.com – that he doesn’t expect Heisey to play today. "He's going to be sore from getting hit twice in the same arm," Baker said. "Anybody that's been hit on that elbow, that bone, the feeling didn't come back. That's why we took him out. It's a tough place to get hit. There is no muscle. I don't think he's playing tomorrow." Heisey was hit just above his left elbow by a 2-2 pitch from Peralta. It was a 95-mph fastball that left a visible welt on his arm, according to Sheldon, who added that Heisey appeared to be in pain as he went out to left field for the bottom half of the second inning. He was ultimately replaced in the field by Derrick Robinson. It’s poor timing for Heisey, as he was just starting to get into a groove offensively. After spending roughly two months on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring, Heisey went 7-for-19 with two home runs in nine games. He’s been seeing regular time in the outfield with Ryan Ludwick’s injury. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
