Heisey to be placed on disabled list
CHICAGO -- Chris Heisey will be placed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday, and the Reds will likely call up outfielder Dave Sappelt from Triple-A Louisville.

Heisey strained his oblique while taking batting practice in Houston earlier in the week.

Sappelt was selected by the Reds in the ninth round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft. In 74 games for Louisville, he is batting .313 with 16 doubles, seven home runs and 29 RBIs.
