Andrew Heaney pitched well despite some fourth-inning hiccups in Sunday's win over the Rangers, allowing two runs on six hits over six innings.
Heaney struck out four and walked one on the day. He allowed a run in the third inning, then completely lost it in the fourth, which went as follows: Prince Fielder hit-by-pitch, Mitch Moreland lineout, Elvis Andrus single, Josh Hamilton strikeout, Ryan Rua walk, Tomas Telis run-scoring hit-by-pitch, Delino DeShields pop out to end inning. Lucky ducky that things didn't end in shambles. Since making his season debut on June 24, Heaney's pitched very well and holds a 1.79 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 31/5 K/BB ratio across 40 1/3 innings. Up next on the docket, a road showdown with California friends at Dodger Stadium as he looks to improve to 6-0. Jul 26 - 7:12 PM

Andrew Heaney held the Red Sox to two runs in seven innings, earning the win in the second game of Monday's doubleheader.

Both runs scored on David Ortiz's two-run home run in the sixth inning, but the Angels gave him more than enough run support. Heaney allowed five hits, walked none, and struck out four in the effort. The lefty has been stellar in five starts since making his season debut on June 24, sporting a 1.57 ERA, a 0.82 WHIP, and a 27/4 K/BB ratio in 34 1/3 innings. Heaney will try to keep it going in his next start at home against the Rangers.

Andrew Heaney turned in yet another great start in a 10-3 win over the Mariners on Sunday, hurling seven shutout innings to improve to 3-0.

Simply put, Heaney has been awesome since the Angels called him up on June 24. Against the Mariners on Sunday, he struck out six and walked one while scattering five hits. The 24-year-old southpaw enters the All-Star Break holding a 1.32 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 23/4 K/BB ratio over 27 1/3 innings, covering four starts.
Jul 12 - 7:23 PM

Andrew Heaney tossed a strong 7 1/3 innings against the Rockies on Tuesday, allowing two runs in a win.

Heaney handled Coors Field like a pro, giving up eight hits but keeping the ball in the park for the most part. He did serve up a solo homer to Drew Stubbs, but he was otherwise solid. The lefty didn't walk a batter while striking out five. The win moved him to 2-0 through three starts. He'll take a 1.77 ERA and 0.84 WHIP into a Sunday start at the Mariners in the first half finale.
Jul 8 - 12:22 AM

Andrew Heaney pitched seven innings of one-run ball, allowing only two hits to earn a win over the Yankees on Tuesday.

Heaney has looked sharp in two major league starts thus far. The Yankees' only run came courtesy Mark Teixeira's home run in the second inning. Along with allowing only two hits, Heaney walked two and struck out seven. Though he has been traded twice already, the lefty is a well-regarded prospect, so it wouldn't be surprising if he kept it up for a while. Mixed leaguers should feel comfortable adding him. Heaney's next start, however, will come at Coors Field against the Rockies.
Jul 1 - 12:47 AM

Andrew Heaney allowed just one run over six innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Astros.

Anaheim didn't win the game until the bottom of the 13th inning. Heaney cruised while he was in, yielding only four hits and one walk while whiffing five. He gave up an RBI double to Carlos Correa in the top of the sixth inning, but that was all the offense Houston could muster on the afternoon. Heaney didn't have great numbers this season at Triple-A Salt Lake, but the former top prospect is an intriguing talent and should get a few more looks while Jered Weaver recovers from a hip injury.
Jun 24 - 8:39 PM

Angels recalled LHP Andrew Heaney from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Heaney will get the ball on Wednesday against the Astros and is in line to receive a few starts in place of Jered Weaver (hip). The left-hander has been inconsistent at Salt Lake this season, posting a 4.71 ERA and 74/25 K/BB ratio over 78 1/3 innings. Wednesday's originally scheduled starter, Matt Shoemaker, has been pushed back to Friday.
Jun 24 - 12:32 PM

MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez reports that Andrew Heaney is the "most likely" candidate to take Jered Weaver's (hip) spot in the rotation.

The Angels don't need a fifth starter this week, but the spot will come up at least twice (June 30 and July 11) before Weaver will be ready to return. Heaney has been up and down at Triple-A Salt Lake this season, posting a 4.71 ERA but also a 74/25 K/BB ratio over 78 1/3 innings.
Jun 23 - 9:55 PM

Angels prospect LHP Andrew Heaney allowed seven earned runs on five hits and four walks in five innings on Monday for Triple-A Salt Lake.

Heaney struck out seven batters in the outing, and it was the eighth time in 12 starts in which he’s reached that total. The 24-year-old left-hander has had an up-and-down season this year in Triple-A, posting a 4.39 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 67/21 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 67 2/3 innings (12 starts). He’s particularly struggled in his last four starts, pitching to a 6.66 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 24 1/3 innings, and it’s doubtful the Angels call him up before he gets back on track in the Pacific Coast League. The good news is Heaney is still missing plenty of bats and limiting free passes, evidenced by his 8.9 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9, but the fact that he’s also giving up 10 hits per nine innings (10.0 H/9) highlights his need for improved command.
Jun 9 - 3:58 PM

Angels pitching prospect Andrew Heaney went six scoreless innings Sunday in a no-decision for Triple-A Salt Lake.

Heaney has struck out seven or more in four of his eight starts. He's giving up hits (.280 opponents' batting average), but at least they're staying in the park. Of 191 batters faced, only one has gone deep off Heaney. The 2012 first-round pick is still undefeated (5-0). He should get work in the big leagues later this year.

Angels pitching prospect Andrew Heaney tied a season-high with nine strikeouts Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Salt Lake.

He's won four of his last five starts, compiling a 3.34 ERA during that stretch. Heaney surrendered just four hits Tuesday, down from the ten he allowed in his previous start. Heaney hasn't lost yet this season but his overall numbers aren't that impressive. He's only pitched six innings or more three times and his WHIP is a disappointing 1.42. However, he's held left-handers to a pathetic .069 average and has only allowed one home run in 37 1/3 innings.

Angels optioned RHP Andrew Heaney to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Heaney impressed enough during spring camp to secure the fifth spot in the Angels rotation, but they've opted to begin the season with an extra man in the bullpen until that fifth starter is needed. Heaney should make his season debut on April 14.
Apr 4 - 11:12 AM

Andrew Heaney delivered a strong performance in his Cactus League finale on Friday, hurling 5 1/3 innings of no-hit ball against the Dodgers.

Heaney did issue three walks and hit a batter while punching out three on the night. With the strong effort, he may have secured his chance to function as the fifth starter in the Angels rotation once they finally require one in mid-April.
Apr 4 - 12:58 AM

Andrew Heaney struggled in Sunday's start against the Reds, surrendering six runs in five innings of work.

Four of the runs scored in the third inning, including three on a Chris Dominguez home run. Heaney, who will start the season at Triple-A Salt Lake, gave up eight hits and a walk while striking out five. In Cactus League action, he has a 9.00 ERA in 19 innings this spring along with a 16/7 K/BB ratio.
Mar 29 - 6:30 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia indicated Sunday that Andrew Heaney will likely begin the season at Triple-A Salt Lake.

Scioscia said that the team won't need a fifth starter until April 14, and will "most likely" head north with just four starting pitchers. The 23-year-old could have solidified his rotation spot with a strong showing in the spring, but surrendered 19 runs in his 19 innings of work. Heaney could still get his opportunity when a fifth starter is needed, depending on the availability of Garrett Richards.
