Twins claimed RHP Chris Heston off waivers from the Dodgers.

Heston will join the Twins in Seattle for Wednesday's game against the Mariners. The 29-year-old right-hander is expected to work in middle relief with his new team. In just five innings with the Mariners earlier this season, he was rocked for 11 runs on 14 hits. The M's subsequently designated him for assignment, after which the Dodgers scooped him up. Now, onward to the Twins. There is no fantasy intrigue here.

Dodgers claimed RHP Chris Heston off waivers from the Mariners.

Heston was designated for assignment after allowing 12 runs -- 11 earned -- over five innings for the M's. He'll provide depth in the minors.
May 26 - 4:02 PM

Mariners designated RHP Chris Heston for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for outfielder Andrew Aplin, who was acquired from the Astros on Wednesday morning. Heston has allowed 12 runs -- 11 earned -- over just five innings this season at the MLB level.

Mariners optioned RHP Chris Heston to Triple-A Tacoma.

Heston was pummeled for seven runs over three innings in a spot start Sunday. He was also awful in a relief appearance for the M's last month.
May 22 - 5:07 PM

Chris Heston was demolished to the tune of seven runs on seven hits over three innings in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

Heston was making his first start of the season in this one. It was one to forget. He walked three in the first inning while surrendering RBI hits to Yolmer Sanchez, Tim Anderson, Matt Davidson and Kevan Smith. When the dust settled, Heston was down 5-0 before the M's even had a chance to bat. He would go on to allow solitary runs in the third and fourth innings before being mercifully relieved of duty. Heston figures to be dropped back down to Triple-A following this disastrous performance.
May 21 - 6:58 PM

Mariners recalled RHP Chris Heston from Triple-A Tacoma.

Heston will start Sunday against the White Sox. He was rocked for five earned runs and seven hits in just two innings of relief in his only appearance with the M's this season and should be ignored for fantasy purposes.
May 21 - 12:07 PM

Chris Heston will be recalled from Triple-A Tacoma to start Sunday's game against the White Sox, manager Scott Servais confirmed.

Heston was punched around for five earned runs and seven hits in just two innings of relief in his only appearance during his first go-around with the Mariners back on April 25. Fantasy owners and DFS players needn't bother with Heston until he shows more consistency.
May 21 - 3:20 AM

Mariners optioned RHP Chris Heston to Triple-A Tacoma.

Heston gave up five earned runs in two innings of mop-up duty Tuesday night against the Tigers. It was his first appearance at the major league level in 2017. The 29-year-old right-hander should get another look eventually.
Apr 26 - 2:37 PM

Chris Heston gave up five runs in two innings Tuesday after relieving Felix Hernandez.

Heston could have been a candidate to step into the rotation in place of the ailing Hernandez with a better outing tonight, but he gave up two homers and seven hits in all, failing to do much to save the Mariners pen in the process. He'll probably be sent back down.
Apr 26 - 12:41 AM

Mariners recalled RHP Chris Heston from Triple-A Tacoma.

Heston posted a 3.18 ERA in his first three starts for Tacoma. He'll work in long relief in Seattle.
Apr 23 - 1:22 PM

Mariners optioned RHP Chris Heston to Triple-A Tacoma; re-assigned LHP Nick Hagadone and RHPs Cody Martin and Jean Machi to minor league camp.

Heston was acquired from the Giants over the winter as rotation depth, but he was never under serious consideration for an Opening Day roster spot. He'll start for Tacoma.
Mar 26 - 12:12 PM

Chris Heston was smashed for six runs over 2 1/3 frames against the Athletics on Tuesday.

Heston faced the minimum through the first two innings, but the wheels came off in the third. The soft-tossing right-hander surrendered six straight hits in the frame, ultimately yielding seven base knocks and six tallies in the inning. Heston had pitched well this spring prior to the nightmarish third inning Tuesday, so we'll cut him some slack.
Mar 21 - 11:30 PM

Chris Heston surrendered three runs and three hits over 2 1/3 unimpressive innings Wednesday in the Mariners’ Cactus League defeat to the Dodgers.

Justin Turner took Heston deep for a solo home run in the first and Trayce Thompson did the same two innings later. Clearly Heston wasn’t fooling anyone with his fastball, which sat in the mid-to-high 80s. He also had a hard time finding the strike zone, allowing three walks and throwing just 30 of his 61 pitches for strikes. Aside from Wednesday’s clunker, Heston has actually had a decent spring, delivering a 2.89 ERA over four appearances. Heston threw a no-hitter for San Francisco back in 2015 but spent most of last year in the minor leagues.
Mar 15 - 8:08 PM

Chris Heston tossed two shutout frames Sunday in his Cactus League debut against the Padres.

Heston gave up just one hit -- a single to Brett Wallace in the top of the second inning. The right-hander is looking to bounce back from a frustrating 2016 season with the Giants that saw him register a 4.54 ERA at Triple-A Sacramento and a 10.80 ERA in the majors. For now he projects to serve as organizational rotation depth for the Mariners in 2017. He was acquired from San Francisco in December for a player to be named later.
