The Angels have scratched Andrew Heaney from his scheduled start Thursday after being eliminated Wednesday night.
Bud Norris will start in his place, since the Angels don't want him earning a $500,000 bonus he was due as a reliever. Heaney was slated to return from a shoulder impingement Thursday after missing three starts, but there's just no need to take a chance with him now that there's nothing at stake. He finishes 1-2 with a 7.06 ERA in five starts after returning from Tommy John surgery. He will be a sleeper next spring. Sep 28 - 12:43 AM

Date:

Andrew Heaney (shoulder) could return to the Angels' rotation on Thursday.

It sounds like there were no setbacks after his bullpen, so he'll get a chance to make one final start on the year after being sidelined since September 9 with a shoulder impingement. He'll have to be 100 percent, as he's still just returning from Tommy John surgery and the Angels are all but eliminated.

Andrew Heaney (shoulder) threw a successful bullpen session on Tuesday.

It sounds like he could make one final regular-season start Thursday against the White Sox, though nothing is official yet. Heaney has been sidelined since September 10 due to a left shoulder impingement. He returned in late August from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.
Sep 26 - 5:44 PM

Andrew Heaney (shoulder) is scheduled to throw off of a mound on Monday.

If all goes well with that session, he hasn't been ruled out from starting for the Angels on Thursday. The 26-year-old southpaw has been shut down since September 10 due to a shoulder impingement.
Sep 24 - 5:11 PM

Andrew Heaney (shoulder) played catch again on Thursday afternoon.

Heaney told reporters after the workout that he's feeling better, but the 26-year-old left-hander still hasn't thrown off a mound and can probably be ruled out for the remainder of the 2017 regular season. If the Angels are able to sneak into the playoffs, Heaney could become an option in some capacity.
Sep 21 - 2:15 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said there is no timetable for Andrew Heaney (shoulder) to resume throwing off a mound.

Heaney has been playing catch without issue for the last couple of days, but it sounds like he might not be able to fit in another start before the end of the regular season. The 26-year-old left-hander is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter.
Sep 19 - 7:36 PM

Andrew Heaney (shoulder) threw on flat ground without issue Saturday.

It's good to hear, although Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday that he's still not sure when Heaney will be ready for mound work. Obviously, the Halos don't have a ton of time here. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on Heaney making a start this week.
Sep 17 - 2:11 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Thursday that Andrew Heaney (shoulder) is "moving in the right direction," but he's not sure when the lefty will throw a bullpen session.

It sounds like Heaney's shoulder has responded well to treatment, but he's obviously going to need to throw off a mound before being cleared to return to game action. The southpaw hasn't pitched since last Saturday due to a shoulder impingement and his return to the Angels' rotation doesn't appear to be imminent.
Sep 15 - 12:35 PM

Andrew Heaney (shoulder) will miss his next turn in the Angels' rotation.

Heaney was diagnosed with a shoulder impingement after leaving his last start against the Mariners with one out in the bottom of the third inning. Anaheim will try a bullpen game Friday against the Rangers. The hope is Heaney can return sometime next week.
Sep 12 - 7:15 PM

An MRI has revealed an impingement in Andrew Heaney's left shoulder.

The Angels are only saying for now that Heaney is considered day-to-day and is questionable to make his next start. That would certainly lend optimism to his chances of contributing at some point this month, but his status does remain up in the air. The Halos haven't revealed who might take Heaney's next turn, but Troy Scribner would be an obvious option.
Sep 11 - 7:28 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia on Sunday wouldn't rule out Andrew Heaney (shoulder) making his next start.

Heaney left his start Saturday against the Mariners due to shoulder soreness. The lefty will undergo an MRI on Monday just to be safe, but it sounds like the feeling is his injury is minor. He could be pushed back to Saturday to get a little extra rest.
Sep 10 - 2:03 PM

Andrew Heaney left his start Saturday against the Mariners due to shoulder soreness.

It's relatively good news that the discomfort is not in his surgically-repaired left elbow, but shoulder injuries can be even more troublesome. Heaney allowed two runs on two walks and four hits before exiting with one out in the bottom of the third inning. He will be reevaluated on Sunday.
Sep 10 - 12:20 AM

Andrew Heaney was removed from his start Saturday against the Mariners with an apparent injury.

Angels catcher Martin Maldonado motioned for a trainer during the middle of a Kyle Seager at-bat in the bottom of the third inning. It was hard to tell what exactly was bothering Heaney, who just returned last month from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. There should be an update soon.
Sep 9 - 10:22 PM

Andrew Heaney was torched for five earned runs over just 3 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Rangers.

Heaney issued four walks and gave up six hits, including three home runs. The left-hander looked great on Monday against the A's, earning his first win since undergoing Tommy John surgery last year, but it doesn't look like he is going to be a trustworthy fantasy starter down the stretch here in 2017. Heaney is lined up to face the Mariners on the road in his next outing.
Sep 3 - 7:07 PM

Andrew Heaney earned his first win since Tommy John surgery by limiting the A's to one run and two hits in six innings Monday.

He struck out 10, which is impressive even against Oakland's lineup. Heaney was making his third start for the Angels after giving up a whopping seven homers in the first two. He'd still be a really scary start in mixed leagues going forward, but with his velocity coming back, he could have some more outings like this by season's end. We're just not ready to trust him yet.
