Chris Heisey's MRI comes back negative
CINCINNATI -- Reds outfielder Chris Heisey had an MRI on Monday, a day after he bumped his left shoulder into the outfield wall while going after a fly ball.
Manager Dusty Baker said the exam was negative, but Heisey was sore. He wasn't in the lineup for the start of a series against the New York Mets.
Heisey and center fielder Drew Stubbs ran to the wall in left-center field to track down Nate McLouth's fly ball in the gap during the ninth inning of a 4-3 win over Atlanta on Sunday night, bumping as Stubbs made the catch. Heisey stayed in the game.
First baseman Joey Votto was out of the lineup Monday, getting a day of rest.
