Andrew Heaney, Kyle Kubitza optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2015) The Angels optioned pitcher Andrew Heaney and third baseman Kyle Kubitza to Triple-A Salt Lake following Friday's exhibition game against the Dodgers, per the Orange County Register.

Heaney tossed 5 1/3 no-hit innings against Los Angeles. He finished the spring with a 7.03 ERA over 24 1/3 innings of work. Kubitza hit .300 (12 for 40) with one home run and three RBI in 24 spring games.


Angels starter Andrew Heaney solid in 5.1 innings of work on Friday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/4/2015) Andrew Heaney did not allow a run in 5.1 innings on Friday, striking out three and walking three in the Angles' win.

Heaney has now started six games this spring, giving up 19 runs in 24.1 innings of work (7.03 ERA).

Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney likely to be sent to Triple-A


(3/29/2015) Angels manager Mike Scioscia has indicated that pitcher Andrew Heaney will begin the season in Triple-A, according to MLB.com.

The team's top pitching prospect, Heaney has allowed 13 earned runs in 14.0 innings (8.36 ERA) in four starts this spring.

The Angels are expected to open the season with a four-man rotation that will included Jered Weaver, Matt Shoemaker, C.J. Wilson and Hector Santiago.

Starter Garrett Richards is recovering from knee surgery.

"One of the things is, a lot of guys who are playing well, it might come down to what the fit is on the team. So there's a couple different ways," Scioscia said. "There's some things that might happen that might affect somebody's standing on the team in a positive or negative way, just to get the whole roster to be as deep as you can."


Angels' Heaney allows six earned runs vs. Dodgers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) 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
(3/14/2015) 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
(12/11/2014) 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
(12/10/2014) 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
(9/3/2014) 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.


Marlins add four from Triple-A


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) The Marlins added four players from Triple-A New Orleans Tuesday, as part of September roster expansion.

The Marlins recalled pitchers Anthony DeSclafani and Andrew Heaney , along with infielders Jusin Bour and Enrique Hernandez , the team announced.  


Not too late for Andrew Heaney to contribute in '14


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(8/26/2014) With the expansion of major league rosters less than a week away, the focus of many Fantasy owners is on potential pickups among the September callups. There could be some big names, like Joc Pederson, Francisco Lindor, Archie Bradley, and eventually, Rusney Castillo, coming up, but the one who could make the biggest impact is Andrew Heaney.

Unlike the aforementioned prospects, Heaney has already made his major league debut, and his four-start stint this summer with the Marlins was less than auspicious. His July return to Triple-A didn't go all that smoothly either, but in August, the southpaw has gotten back on track. In five starts this month, Heaney has held opponents to a .198 batting average while striking out 30 batters and walking 10 over 28 2/3 innings.

Though his 3.77 ERA for the month may not look all that impressive, a sub-4.00 ERA in the Pacific Coast League deserves notice. So does a 1.80 ground-out-to-air-out ratio (per MinorLeagueBaseball.com), which has helped Heaney to allow just two home runs this month.

Given the recent struggles of Nathan Eovaldi and Brad Hand in the Marlins' rotation, there would seem to be an opportunity for Heaney to get another chance at the major league level. Given his recent body of work in the minors, he just might stand a better chance at succeeding this time around.


Andrew Heaney struggling in New Orleans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) 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.


Marlins have plan for Andrew Heaney at Triple-A


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) 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
(7/7/2014) 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.


Marlins sent Andrew Heaney down amid struggles


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) 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. 


Andrew Heaney surrenders five runs vs. Cardinals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) 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.


Andrew Heaney loses third straight Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Marlins pitcher Andrew Heaney suffered his third straight loss Sunday, giving up four earned runs on eight hits in six innings and striking out four in his team's 4-3 defeat against the A's.

It's been an inauspicious beginning to the major-league career of Heaney (0-3) despite posting a quality WHIP (1.12) and K:BB ratio (12:3) in 17 innings over his first three starts. He's given up a home run in each of his three starts, with Sunday's shot bringing home three runs during a four-run sixth inning. Heaney will look for his first win Saturday against the Cardinals.


Andrew Heaney surrenders four runs in loss vs. Phillies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Marlins pitcher Andrew Heaney took a loss in his second start Tuesday, giving up five earned runs on four hits and two walks in five innings while striking out five in his team's 7-4 defeat against the Phillies.

Heaney (0-2) wasn't as successful as he was in his debut, when he pitched six one-run innings but still suffered a loss. The Phillies were able to rack up three runs in the first inning, with two coming on a home run, and a fourth in the second inning on a wild pitch. Heaney was able to pitch three scoreless innings before giving up a double to the leadoff batter in the sixth inning, and the runner would later score. Heaney owns a 4.09 ERA and 8:3 K:BB ratio going into Sunday's start against the A's.


Andrew Heaney proves his worth


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) Maybe he didn't get the win and maybe his strikeout rate could have been higher, but only the most naysaying of naysayers would find fault in Andrew Heaney's first major-league start Thursday. The 23-year-old left-hander gave up a home run in the first inning and then breezed through the next five with the efficiency of a 10-year veteran, nerves be darned.

Granted, not every pitcher who has a successful debut goes on to have a successful career or even rookie season, but Heaney profiles as the kind who'll make a quick transition. His polish helped make him the ninth overall pick in the 2012 draft, and he breezed through the minor-league system without any lapses in control.

His innings could became an issue later on, but this first start is enough to convince me he'll stick around and belongs ahead of other up-and-comers like Marcus Stroman and Jake Arrieta in my rankings, coming in at 67th.

I consider the top 65 must-own in any league of respectable size, so Heaney is right there himself.


Defense lets Andrew Heaney down in first big-league start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Marlins pitcher Andrew Heaney pitched well in his major-league debut, but his teammates came out flat in a 1-0 loss to the Mets.

Heaney tossed a quality start in the game, and really only made one mistake, a first-inning solo home run by David Wright. He settled in from that point on, allowing one run on four hits and a walk in six innings of work, while striking out three batters on 91 pitches.

Heaney mostly lived up to the hype in his big-league debut, and will likely be a fixture of the Marlins' rotation from this point on. His next start is set for Tuesday in Philadelphia. 


Report: Marlins open to trading for starting pitcher


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) The Marlins are open to trading for a starting pitcher leading up to the July 31 trade deadline, reports MLB.com. However, the team isn't to that point yet, as they are first looking for help internally with the promotions of Andrew Heaney and Anthony DeSclafani.

Andrew Heaney could make an immediate impact


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) Prospects hounds have already celebrated the arrival of George Springer and Gregory Polanco and even caught a glimpse of Oscar Taveras for those two weeks when Matt Adams was on the DL. But when Andrew Heaney is called up Thursday to take Randy Wolf's place in the Marlins rotation, he'll be the most notable pitching prospect to get the call so far this year.

Which isn't to say Kevin Gausman and Marcus Stroman are chumps. Gausman may even have more upside than Heaney. But because he already got a taste of the big leagues last year (and disappointed, for the most part), his arrival wasn't met with the same enthusiasm.

Heaney is rightfully a big deal in Fantasy. Baseball America rated him the 30th-best prospect, a good 25 spots ahead of Stroman, coming into the year, and MLB.com ranked him 29th. His 1.60 ERA in 19 appearances, including 18 starts, between high Class A and Double-A last year speaks for itself.

His numbers this year are almost as impressive, especially when you consider his last four starts came in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, where he had a 27-to-2 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 23 innings. And while no player is a sure thing in his first stint in the big leagues, pitching half his games in a pitcher's park should give Heaney a nice little cushion.

His innings will catch up to him eventually -- counting the Arizona Fall League, he had only 123 last year -- but Heaney is must-own right now.


Marlins promote top pitching prospect Andrew Heaney


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) The Marlins announced Monday they called up highly touted pitching prospect Andrew Heaney from Triple-A New Orleans. 

The left-handed hurler was 7-2 with a 2.47 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in the minors this season. He was 3-0 with a 2.74 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in four starts for New Orleans following his promotion from Double-A Jacksonville.

Heaney announced on Twitter he will be making his first career start Thursday against the Mets.


Andrew Heaney scratched from start in effort to limit innings


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) A desire to limit innings motivated the Marlins to scratch pitching prospect Andrew Heaney from his scheduled Triple-A start Wednesday for New Orleans.

The news, coupled with the word that Miami starter Henderson Alvarez was hurt Sunday, first drove speculation that Heaney was about to be promoted. But Alvarez is fine for his next start, so it became apparent that the Marlins simply wanted to slow Heaney down. He had already pitched 53 2/3 innings at the Double-A level before being called up to the Zephyrs.

"Counting spring training and Double-A, he's pitched a lot of innings," a source told the New Orleans Advocate. "They just want to pace him."

Heaney had performed well all season until his last start. He gave up five earned runs on 11 hits and four walks.


Report: Andrew Heaney expected to join Miami this month


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Marlins pitching prospect Andrew Heaney is expected to be promoted at some point this month, the Palm Beach Post reports Sunday.

Heaney bounced back from his worst start of the season on Saturday, scattering one run on five hits and one walk while striking out nine. He is 3-0 with a 2.74 ERA and a complete game through four starts (23 innings) for Triple-A New Orleans this season.

Ranking the most stashable prospects


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/28/2014) With word that Maikel Franco could in fact replace the injured Cody Asche if he gets hot enough at Triple-A Lehigh Valley during the time Asche is sidelined (for more, check out the latest Prospects Report), the Phillies third baseman has officially become one of the most stashable prospects in Fantasy. Of course, by now, that list has become so long that you may need help prioritizing. So here you go.

Gregory Polanco is still No. 1. He's way too good for Triple-A, and even if the Pirates are waiting because of Super 2 concerns, he may be only three weeks away. Oscar Taveras may be only one week away if you buy that the Cardinals plan to promote him for their stretch of seven games in AL parks at the beginning of June. He may not be as prepared for the big leagues as Polanco, but he has arguably more upside.

Jon Singleton is still "on deck" for the Astros and crushing it at Triple-A Oklahoma City. The comes Franco. Andrew Heaney, the top pitcher of choice, edges out Joc Pederson, who seems like a long shot for a promotion even with Carl Crawford's ankle injury.

Boom! End of list. Now, go make us proud.
