|Andrew Heaney struggling in New Orleans |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/2/14) Marlins premier pitching prospect Andrew Heaney did not thrive upon his promotion to the big league team and has proven disappointing since his demotion to Triple-A New Orleans.
Heaney has a 1-3 record and 5.96 ERA with the Zephyrs since going down. He gave up four earned runs in three innings pitched in his last start.

(7/12/14) The Marlins want to see Andrew Heaney back in the majors, but he is going to have to prove himself again at Triple-A before that happens, as general manager Dan Jennings told MLB.com Saturday.
"No matter how fast you want to speed up the clock, it still takes time to develop a prospect," Marlins general manager Dan Jennings said. "It does. There's finer points of the game, that until you're polished, when you get up here, they're exposed."
Heaney was tagged with 15 earned runs in 20 2/3 innings in four starts in the majors, after dominating at Triple-A. He put up a 2.74 ERA in his first 23 innings at New Orleans, but the team wants to see him use his change up more while controlling both sides of the plate.
"Those were things that were identified for him in the offseason," Jennings said. "He's made strides."
He was skipped in the rotation the first time through at New Orleans, in an effort to keep him available to pitch in September, even with an innings limit.
|Andrew Heaney still worth stashing |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/7/14) Remember your enthusiasm when the Marlins first announced top prospect Andrew Heaney would be joining the big-league rotation in mid-June? Perhaps you even picked him up a couple weeks beforehand in anticipation of that announcement.
Don't let his return trip to the minors diminish your enthusiasm.
He pitched better in his four-start stint than his numbers would have you believe. He showed plus control for a rookie left-hander and was usually done in by one bad inning. His final start July 5 at St. Louis was his only "ugly" outing. For a rookie thrown into the mix midseason, that's not a terrible percentage.
You may have noticed the Marlins didn't call up anyone to replace Heaney. They're able to go with a four-man rotation until the All-Star break, so as manager Mike Redmond told the Miami Herald Sunday, they would have skipped Heaney's next start anyway. Optioning him to the minors gives him a chance to regain his confidence for when they need a fifth starter again.
His return to the big-league rotation in the second half is, in my mind, inevitable. You'd rather not have to fight for him when it happens, so if you have the roster space, keep him stashed.

(7/5/14) The Marlins optioned pitcher Andrew Heaney to Triple-A New Orleans Saturday, after his fourth major-league start against the Cardinals.
Heaney will go back to the minors for more seasoning, after posting a 6.53 ERA in 20 2/3 innings over four starts. He went 0-3 and a late Marlins rally Saturday is the only thing that kept him from falling to 0-4.

(7/5/14) Marlins pitcher Andrew Heaney didn't factor into Saturday's decision, giving up five earned runs on eight hits and three walks in just 3 2/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 6-5 win over the Cardinals.
Heaney gave up a run in the first inning before running into serious trouble in the fourth, when the Cardinals knocked a pair of home runs and scored four in all off the talented rookie. Heaney has given up four runs or more in each of his last three games, but Saturday's start was his first non-loss of his short major-league career. He owns a 6.53 ERA and 13:6 K:BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings. Heaney is scheduled to face the Mets Friday.
|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.
