CHICAGO (AP) - The Cincinnati Reds placed outfielder Chris Heisey on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left oblique and called up Dave Sappelt from Triple-A Louisville to play Sunday against the Chicago Cubs.

Heisey, who was a pinch-runner Friday night, reported more soreness on Saturday. He’s hitting .249 with 12 homers and 38 RBIs this season.

Sappelt is batting .313 with seven homers and 29 RBIs in his second season in Louisville. He impressed manager Dusty Baker in spring training by batting .564 with a team-high 22 hits.

Sappelt will lead off and play left field against the Cubs.
