Line of the Day: June 22nd, 2011

Outfielder Chris Heisey of the Cincinnati Reds homered three times and drove in five runs in a 10-2 victory over the New York Yankees in the second game of their doubleheader to earn a split on the day. It was the first multi-homer game and also the first lead-off home run of his young career. Heisey is the 27th player in Reds' history to homer three times in a game.

Line: 5 AB, 4 R, 3 H, 5 RBI; 3 HR

My fantasy perspective: Heisey hasn't been fantasy relevant up until this point (0.1% ESPN; 1% Yahoo! owned) but all that is probably changing as I type this article. Every fantasy owner still paying attention to their team(s) in a daily league is gauging who to drop to pick up "that guy that hit 3 bombs last night".

Unless you wake up to the news tomorrow morning stating that Jonny Gomes was designated for assignment, save your waiver wire claim. Dusty Baker isn't running a rookie out to left field on a regular basis. OVER HIS DEAD BODY! Keep an eye on Heisey's playing time before committing, unless he hits a few more bombs, of course.
