Angels SP Andrew Heaney gives up two runs in loss to Dodgers


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/1/2015) Angels starting pitcher Andrew Heaney was overmatched during Friday's game against the Dodgers.

Though Heaney pitched well, he was facing off against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, who continued his 37-inninng scoreless streak. Heaney tossed 5 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on four hits. He struck out three batters and walked a pair.

With the loss, Heaney drops to 5-1 on the season. He owns a remarcable 1.97 ERA in 45 2/3 innings this season.


Angels SP Andrew Heaney snags fifth straight victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2015) Ho hum. Another start, another win for Angels emerging starter Andrew Heaney.

The 24-year-old Heaney notched his fifth straight Sunday against Texas. It was tougher than the 13-7 final indicates - his offense didn't explode until after he was removed from the game. He allowed just two runs on six hits in six innings with one walk and four strikeouts.

Heaney gave up single runs in the third and fourth on a Rougned Odor single and bases loaded hit-by-pitch. He retired seven of the last eight batters he faced.

The southpaw has been tremendously effective and consistent since landing a spot in the rotation in late June. He has six straight quality starts in which he has given up two runs or less and now boasts a 1.79 ERA.


Angels SP Andrew Heaney goes seven innings in win


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/21/2015) Angels starting pitcher Andrew Heaney had good stuff during Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Red Sox on Monday.

Heaney tossed seven innings, gave up just two runs on five hits while picking up his fourth win of the season. His lone mistake came in the form of a two-run home run he allowed to David Ortiz.

Heaney improved to 4-0 on the season with an impressive 1.57 ERA.


Angels to play doubleheader Monday against Red Sox


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/19/2015) The Angels will play a doubleheader against the Red Sox on Monday after Sunday's matchup was rained out, the team announced.

Hector Santiago will start the first game, and Andrew Heaney will pitch the night game.


Angels set post-break rotation; decisions still need to be made


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/16/2015) Angels manager Mike Scioscia has partially laid out his rotation plans for the start of the second half. Lefty C.J. Wilson will get the first start out of the All-Star break, as he'll open up the weekend series against the Red Sox on Friday.

Garrett Richards and 2015 All-Star Hector Santiago will go on Saturday and Sunday respectively. 

Meanwhile, the futures for Andrew Heaney, Matt Shoemaker and Jered Weaver are rather unclear. Scioscia said Heaney will get another start. Weaver is on the disabled list with a hip injury, and he threw a simulated game on Thursday but will need at least one more before he's ready to return, according to the Orange County Register


Angels SP Andrew Heaney improves to 3-0


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2015) Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney received his third win of the season during Sunday's 10-3 win over the Mariners.

"I needed to make some good pitches," Heaney said. "I did at some points, and I felt like throughout the day when I really needed a punchout or to make a good pitch, I could do it."

Heaney did not surrender a run on five hits over seven innings of work. He also struck out six and walked one. He is now 3-0 with a 1.32 ERA.

"Any time a young player comes up and does well, you earn either more at-bats if you're swinging well or more innings if you're pitching well," manager Mike Scioscia said, per MLB.com. "There's no doubt that Andrew's thrown the ball at a level that we need and hopefully he'll keep it up."

After receiving a no-decision in his first start of the season, Heaney has now won his last three starts. He has earned a quality start in all four of his starts this season.


Angels' Andrew Heaney moves to 2-0 with win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2015) Angels starter Andrew Heaney earned a win over Colorado on Tuesday, moving to 2-0 on the season in his third start.

Heaney went 7 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on eight hits. He didn't walk a batter and struck out five.

The outing was Heaney's longest of the year, and his runs and hits allowed were both season highs.

"I do my thing, I go out there and pitch, and whatever happens, happens," Heaney said, per MLB.com. "I'd like to think I've given myself an opportunity, but there's five other pitchers that made the team for a reason, and there's a reason I didn't."


Angels' Andrew Heaney earns first career win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Angels starter Andrew Heaney earned his first career win, Tuesday, over the Yankees. 

Heaney was 0-3 last year and had a no decision in his first start of this season. He pitched a career-high seven innings on Tuesday, allowing one run on two hits and striking out a career-high seven batters. 


Angels SP Andrew Heaney shows dominance in no-decision


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/24/2015) Angels starting pitcher Andrew Heaney was dominant in his season debut against the Astros on Wednesday.

Heaney tossed six innings, allowed four hits and just one earned run before leaving the game. He struck out five batters and walked another as he showed great command over his pitches. Heaney's lone mistake came on a double he allowed to Astros shortstop Carlos Correa, which scored their only run of the day.

Heaney, who was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake prior to the game, went 6-2 with a 4.71 ERA in 14 minor-league starts this season.

 "It was good," Heaney said of his Angels debut, per MLB.com. "I wish I wouldn't have given up the one run and we would've hopefully won that in 8 1/2 innings and not had to burn so much of the bullpen. But I felt good."


Angels call up top-100 prospect Andrew Heaney to start Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) The Angels made a surprise move before Wednesday's game against the Astros, calling up starting pitcher Andrew Heaney from Triple-A Salt Lake and announcing he would start against the Astros.

Heaney's arrival meant Matt Shoemaker was bumped back to Friday against the Mariners.

Heaney, who is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America and MLB.com, went 6-2 with a 4.71 ERA in 14 starts for Salt Lake. He posted 74 strikeouts in 78 1/3 innings.


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


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(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.
