The Nationals have released veteran outfielder Chris Heisey in order to clear a spot on the roster for right-hander Erick Fedde, who will make his Major League debut today, tweets Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post.

Heisey, 32, provided some pop off the Washington bench in 2016 and returned in a similar capacity this year, but he hasn’t been productive through 79 plate appearances. In that brief sample, he’s batted just .162/.215/.270 with a homer, three doubles and a triple. He’s missed time with a biceps injury and a groin injury thus far in 2017, and Washington’s acquisition of Howie Kendrick made Heisey somewhat of a redundancy on the active roster.
