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.
Mar 29 - 6:18 PM

Andrew Heaney's tough spring continued as he yielded six runs in 3 1/3 innings facing the Dodgers on Thursday.

The Dodgers scored five times in the second inning and tacked on another run in the third. All told, Heaney allowed seven hits -- including a home run to Alex Guerrero -- while walking one and striking out three. His Cactus League numbers aren't very good: he's allowed nine earned runs with an 8/5 K/BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings.
Mar 19 - 7:47 PM

Andrew Heaney made his Cactus League debut on Monday versus the Reds, yielding one run in three innings.

Heaney gave up a first-inning run on a Jay Bruce sacrifice fly. Overall, he gave up one hit, walked two, and struck out three. With Garrett Richards expected to miss some time in early April, Heaney has a decent shot at making the Angels' rotation out of spring training.
Mar 9 - 6:57 PM

Angels acquired LHP Andrew Heaney from the Dodgers for second baseman Howie Kendrick.

Heaney, the ninth overall pick in the 2012 draft, projects as a long-term second or third starter, and getting him in return for one year of Kendrick is a nice coup for the Angels. It doesn't mean Heaney will contribute immediately, but he should have a chance to win a rotation spot, particularly with Garrett Richards likely to start off on the DL. If he gets one, he'll be a solid AL-only pitcher and a potential streaming play in mixed leagues.

The Dodgers and Marlins have agreed upon a trade sending Dee Gordon and Dan Haren to the Marlins for Andrew Heaney, Kike Hernandez, Chris Hatcher and Austin Barnes.

Heaney is the clear headliner here for the Dodgers. The left-hander had a subpar debut in 2014, going 0-3 with a 5.83 ERA in 29 1/3 innings, but he was the club's first-round pick in 2012 and was the no. 29 overall prospect in baseball according to MLB.com prior to the season. Still just 23 years old, Heaney is penciled into the Dodgers rotation heading into spring training.

Andrew Heaney yielded four runs in four innings, taking a no-decision in Friday's victory against the Nationals.

Unfortunately for Heaney, the Marlins went on to score 13 runs after he exited the game. The right-hander gave up six hits, walked one, and struck out three in the second game of Friday's double-header. Heaney had very little success in 2014, finishing with a 5.83 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and a 20/7 K/BB ratio over five starts and two relief appearances. The 23-year-old is expected to achieve great things going forward, however.

Marlins recalled LHP Andrew Heaney from Triple-A New Orleans.

Heaney struggled mightily in his first taste of the big leagues earlier this season, posting a 5.03 ERA across four starts. With the injury to Henderson Alvarez (oblique), he could get another chance in the rotation this month. The 23-year-old southpaw still has a very promising future.

Marlins left-handed pitching prospect Andrew Heaney allowed six runs (four earned) over 4 2/3 innings, allowing seven hits and three walks while striking out five batters for Triple-A New Orleans.

Heaney looked good over his past three starts, and it is easy to ignore this start as it was in the hitter-haven in Las Vegas. He is likely to return to the majors in September, and will likely start 2015 in the rotation for good.

Marlins prospect LHP Andrew Heaney was dominant on Sunday for Triple-A New Orleans, striking out nine batters and allowing two hits over eight scoreless innings.

The left-hander walked two batters in the outing. Heaney, 23, struggled in July after a demotion from the major leagues, with a 5.03 ERA in 19 2/3 innings over four starts. However, he’s certainly righted the ship over his last three turns in the rotation, evidenced by his 1.71 ERA, .139 BAA and 24-6 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 21 innings during that span. Heaney will almost definitely rejoin the Marlins in September, as he’ll look to improve upon the 6.53 ERA he previously registered over four starts in the major leagues.

Marlins prospect LHP Andrew Heaney allowed one run on two hits in seven innings Tuesday while striking out eight batters for Triple-A New Orleans.

The highly touted left-hander walked two batters in the outing. Heaney, 23, struggled in his previous two starts following a demotion from the major leagues to Triple-A in early July, as he allowed eight runs (seven earned) on 10 hits (two home runs) in 6 2/3 innings. But now that he's back on track after Tuesday's outing, it shouldn't be long until Heaney receives another crack at the major leagues.

Marlins optioned LHP Andrew Heaney to Triple-A New Orleans.

The Marlins can get by with four starters until after the All-Star break, and Heaney will presumably be back at that point. He was lit up for five earned runs in just 3 2/3 innings Saturday afternoon in St. Louis, watching his ERA climb to 6.53 ERA. The 23-year-old lefty remains a big-time pitching prospect and should be held onto in fantasy leagues.

Andrew Heaney was tagged for five runs over just 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Saturday.

Heaney gave up five hits in the fourth inning (including back-to-back home runs to Allen Craig and Jhonny Peralta) before being pulled. He walked three and struck out just one batter. The rookie southpaw now owns a 6.53 ERA through four starts in the majors and has allowed at least four runs in each of his last three outings. The home run ball has really hurt him, as he has served up five longballs in just 20 2/3 innings of work. He still has a ton of promise, but those in mixed leagues should consider leaving him inactive until he begins to show improvement.
