Video: Watch Chris Heisey smash his fifth home run of the spring

Chris Heisey has been flat out knocking the cover off the ball this spring.

The 29-year-old entered Saturday tied for the major league lead in home runs on the spring with four. By the end of the first inning against the Brewers, Heisey had five home runs and sole possession of first place atop the home run leaderboard.

Heisey's been doing more than just slugging long drives though. His .412 batting average in 34 at-bats pays evidence of that.

Ryan Ludwick is currently penciled in as the everyday starter in left field. But it's going to be hard for Bryan Price to keep Heisey's bat out of the lineup if he continues to swing like this.
