A frustrating development here for the Redlegs.

According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, outfielder Chris Heisey re-strained his troublesome right hamstring Monday in a rehab game at Double-A Pensacola. He has been pulled off his minor league rehab assignment and sent to Cincinnati to be examined by the organization’s medical staff.

Heisey had been hoping to rejoin the Reds’ active roster at some point later this week, but he will probably now struggle to return before the end of May. He has been on the shelf since April 27.

The Reds will continue to rely on Xavier Paul and Derrick Robinson in left field. Heisey, 28, was batting .173/.195/.293 with two homers and five RBI in 23 games. The 28-year-old is a .252/.306/.426 career hitter.

    Not sure this is so frustrating. Paul and Robinson are doing a better job right now than Heisey has been. I really thought if Baker would just put Heisey in the lineup for a couple of months and let him play, he would turn out to be pretty decent. And, well, maybe he is “pretty decent,” but at 28, I think he’s as good as he’s going to get. As a bat off the bench, he has been impressive, and bench depth is where the Reds have been weak the past few years.
