|Andrew Heaney looks good in first work |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/1/14) Marlins pitching prospect Andrew Heaney is not expected to earn a rotation spot out of spring training, but he did not look out of place at all in his debut against the Cardinals Saturday.
Heaney, who has pitched just 33 2/3 innings over Class A, struck out two batters over two scoreless innings of work. He gave up one hit and walked one batter, facing two batters over the minimum in his first work in big-league camp.
Heaney is the team's top prospect, and is likely to make his major-league debut sometime this season, even if he heads back to the minors after camp. He posted a 1.60 ERA in 95 1/3 innings between Class A and Double-A in 2013.

(2/3/14) The Marlins shocked the baseball world in 2013 when Jose Fernandez made the unexpected leap from Class A to the majors. Andrew Heaney could follow a similiar path in 2014, despite having just six starts above Class A.
The 2012 first-round pick (ninth overall) will be in camp as a non-roster invitee.
"Who knows? I think it's a long shot. But if he left spring training making the major-league club, it wouldn't surprise me," Marlins vice president of player development Marty Scott told MLB.com. "If he's not, I'm not going to be disappointed, either."
Though, if Heaney has to start the year in the minors, he will likely make his MLB debut at some point this season.
"Let nature take its course," Scott said. "If he makes strides in 2014 like he did last year, I think minimum, he would be a September callup."

|Marlins, Cubs could look into trading prospects |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(11/13/13) According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, the Marlins and Cubs are considering talks regarding a trade of some of their top prospects.
The pitching-heavy Marlins may be willing to part with some of their young hurlers, including major leaguers Jacob Turner, Henderson Alvarez and Nate Eovadi as well as prospects Andrew Heaney , Justin Nicolino , Adam Conley and Jose Urena and late-season callup Brian Flynn. In return, they would likely target one or more of the Cubs' top hitting prospects, including Kris Bryant , Javier Baez , Albert Almora and Jorge Soler .
|Andrew Heaney hits a bump in the road |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/7/13) Marlins pitching prospect Andrew Heaney , the team's consensus top prospect still in the minors, saw a string of 33 scoreless innings in a row snapped Tuesday, in a 10-0 loss for Double-A Jacksonville.
Heaney surrendered three runs in the first inning and five overall in three innings of work. He has allowed five runs in nine innings since being called up to Double-A recently. Heaney posted an 0.88 ERA in 61 2/3 innings for Class A Jupiter prior.
|After a shaky first six starts as a professional late in 2012, Andrew Heaney showed last year why the Marlins drafted him ninth overall two years ago. A 27-inning scoreless streak left him with a 0.88 ERA in 13 appearances, including 12 starts, at high Class A Jupiter, and he didn't let up too much after his promotion to Double-A Jacksonville. Easing up on his fastball to keep his walks in check -- something that sets him apart from other young left-handers -- Heaney still averaged nearly a strikeout per nine innings between the two levels, aided in part by a wipeout slider. He shows so much polish and offers such a refined arsenal that the only things delaying his big-league arrival are durability concerns -- a strained lat early last season limited him to only 95 1/3 innings, though he did add a few more in the Arizona Fall League -- and financial considerations. The Marlins haven't ruled out Heaney for a rotation spot this spring. A midseason promotion is far more likely considering he has made only six starts above Class A, but then again, Jose Fernandez had made none at this time last year. Heaney isn't quite the same caliber of prospect, but he's good enough to deserve a look in all leagues when he gets the call.
