Angels' Heaney allows six earned runs vs. Dodgers
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney surrendered six earned runs on seven hits and one walk in 3 1/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 7-7 tie with the Dodgers Thursday.
"Out of the three starts I've made, today was the best I've felt stuff-wise, by far," Heaney said after the outing, per MLB.com. "Yeah, it's a little frustrating to feel like I have my best stuff and have the results turn out like that, but we'll see what happens in five days."
Manager Mike Scioscia agreed that Heaney's best start came Thursday.
"If you look at the linescore, it's not a good outing," Scioscia said. "But I think if you look at the adjustments and his stuff, we were excited, especially with how he finished."
Heaney had allowed just three runs in six innings in his previous two outings, but Thursday's struggled give him an 8.68 ERA and 8:5 K:BB ratio in 9 1/3 spring innings. Acquired this offseason in exchange for second baseman Howie Kendrick, Heaney may be headed to Triple-A to begin the season.
Angels' Andrew Heaney learning to work through struggles on the mound
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/14/15) Angels pitching prospect Andrew Heaney is learning the hard way how to get out jams on the mound. Heaney surrendered three singles in a row Saturday, but was able to get out of the inning, allowing just one run.
"It's never fun to give up three singles in a row to start the game and then to have [Adam LaRoche] come to the plate, who, I've probably faced five-six times and he's probably got four hits off me," Heaney said. "So a guy that I'm not very comfortable facing, but working out of jams is big. You're going to get into trouble and you've got to be able to limit the damage, and for the most part, I feel like I did that today."
Heaney has found himself getting behind in the count a lot in his appearance and labored through multiple batters.
"I think he gave some counts away but all in all, you could just see the ball coming out live," manager Mike Scioscia said. "He threw a couple good sliders -- one to LaRoche to strike him out earlier and showed a good changeup. Like most young pitchers, getting their feet on the ground and commanding both sides of the plate. Command counts. He'll get better as it goes on."
Dodgers pick up Howie Kendrick from Angels
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/11/14) The Dodgers have traded pitcher Andrew Heaney to the Angels for second baseman Howie Kendrick, confirms CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Ken Gurnick of MLB.com was the first to report Kendrick would be going to the Dodgers.
The Dodgers acquired Heaney earlier on Wednesday in a six player deal with Miami. Once that trade was processed, the team dealt the 23-year-old pitcher to the Angels for Kendrick. Kendrick, 31, hit .293/.347/.397 over 617 at-bats last year. Kendrick is owed just under $10 million, and is entering the final year of his contract.
Heaney appeared in seven games for the Marlins last year, including five starts. He posted a 5.83 ERA over 29 1/3 innings. He was considered a top-20 prospect entering last season, according to MLB.com.
Report: Marlins/Dodgers discussing Gordon for Heaney swap
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/10/14) The Marlins and Dodgers are in "serious talks" about a deal involving Dee Gordon and Andrew Heaney, according to ESPN.
The 26-year-old Gordon hit .289/.326/.378 over 609 at-bats last season. Gordon is entering his first season of arbitration, and wouldn't become a free-agent until after the 2019 season. The 23-year-old Heaney got his first taste of the majors last year. He posted a 5.83 ERA over seven appearances. Heaney made five starts. It's possible other players are involved in the trade discussions.
Andrew Heaney not to be ignored
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(9/3/14) Let's face it: Even if he did inherit a rotation spot, Andrew Heaney probably wouldn't be your first choice to add off the waiver wire in standard mixed leagues given the way he performed with the big club just before the All-Star break and with Triple-A New Orleans thereafter. But any time a prospect of his caliber has a shot at regular playing time, it's worth noting in all Fantasy formats.
And as I pointed out in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, Henderson Alvarez's strained oblique gives Heaney that shot.
His numbers in the PCL wouldn't suggest he's a finished product, but it is a hitter's league. Generally speaking, he throws strikes and misses bats, which is exactly what you want to see from a young left-hander, but he's already thrown about 60 more innings than he had all of last year.
If I was looking to add a starting pitcher who was just called up for September, I'd go for Taijuan Walker before I went for Heaney, but that doesn't mean Heaney is someone to ignore.
|2014 Summary: Andrew Heaney was one of the more highly anticipated prospect callups last season, but his brief tenure with the Marlins was a disappointing one. His debut was a quality start against the Mets, but after three straight sub-quality outings, he was dispatched to Triple-A New Orleans. Heaney wasn't seen again in the majors until September, when he made two relief appearances and a spot start. He was 0-3 with a 5.83 ERA for Miami, but his work in the minors left a much better impression. Heaney went 9-6 with a 3.28 ERA and a 9.4 K/9 ratio, splitting time between New Orleans and Double-A Jacksonville. The lefty also made waves at the Winter Meetings getting traded twice in the same evening, first from the Marlins to the Dodgers, and then from the Dodgers to the Angels .|
Playing time status: Heaney could open the season at the back end of the Angels' rotation. Even if he spends more time in Triple-A, he should be up with the big club at some point this season.
2015 Outlook: The 23-year-old shouldn't be as homer-prone as he was in his first year in the majors (six home runs allowed in 29 1/3 innings) and could also provide a boost in ERA and WHIP. Heaney is a worthwhile use of a late-round pick in standard mixed leagues.
