Andrew Heaney yielded seven earned runs, six hits and two walks with six strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings in a loss against the Giants on Friday.
Heaney tossed just 46 of his 76 pitches for strikes, slipping to 0-1 with a 9.64 ERA in his two outings this season. Like his first outing, he really had just one poor inning. But this time it was really poor. Heaney allowed the first five batters to reach in the fifth, including a two-run homer to Mac Williamson. Andrew McCutchen ended his night with a three-run shot. His next start is likely to come early next week against the Orioles, although the exact order is uncertain with Shohei Ohtani (blister) battling an injury on his pitching hand. Apr 21 - 1:45 AM

Andrew Heaney yielded four runs -- three earned -- in five innings and struck out seven against the Royals on Friday.

Heaney had one bad inning in which he gave up a double and three singles, but he was solid overall. He should be a useful mixed-league starter if he can stay healthy this year.
Apr 13 - 11:54 PM

Angels activated LHP Andrew Heaney from the 10-day disabled list.

Heaney will make his season debut Friday in Kansas City after missing the first couple weeks with left elbow inflammation. He allowed one run over 6 1/3 innings in his rehab start and isn't a bad streaming option against a weak Royals offense.
Apr 13 - 5:22 PM

The Angels are expected to recall Andrew Heaney (elbow) from his minor-league rehab assignment with Class A Inland Empire to start Friday's game in Kansas City.

Heaney looked sharp in his minor-league rehab start on April 6 for Inland Empire, allowing just one run and two hits over 6 1/3 innings. Of course, that's also against A level players. It's probably best to avoid him in the active fantasy lineup until he gets a start or two under his belt to knock off some rust.
Apr 12 - 12:10 AM

Andrew Heaney (elbow) pitched well in his minor league rehab start for Class-A Inland Empire on Friday, allowing one run on two hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Heaney punched out six and walked one on the night, throwing 61 of his 87 pitches for strikes. As long as he feels good on Saturday, he should get cleared to rejoin the Angels' rotation next week.
Apr 7 - 12:15 AM

Andrew Heaney (elbow) will throw 80-90 pitches in a minor league rehab game Friday.

If that goes well, he could join the Angels' rotation next week. Heaney was placed on the disabled list on Opening Day after coming down with elbow inflammation near the end of spring training. He's made just six starts at the major league level over the last two seasons, but the 26-year-old left-hander has the talent to make an impact in deep mixed fantasy formats if his health would finally cooperate.
Apr 2 - 7:33 PM

Andrew Heaney (elbow) threw 69 pitches in an intrasquad game on Sunday.

Angels GM Billy Eppler said it went well. Heaney landed on the disabled list March 29, retroactive to March 26, after battling elbow inflammation toward the end of spring training. An MRI showed no structural damage and the 26-year-old left-hander should get the go-ahead to join the Halos' rotation sometime this month. April 12 is a possibility.
Apr 1 - 2:49 PM

Angels placed LHP Andrew Heaney on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to March 26 with left shoulder inflammation.

Heaney was able to throw a bullpen session on March 27, and there was no ligament damage found in an MRI. That's the good news. The bad news is it's more health trouble for a hurler that has made just six appearances over the last two seasons. Once (hopefully) healthy, he'll join the Angels' six-man rotation.
Mar 29 - 12:03 PM

Andrew Heaney (elbow) threw a bullpen session Tuesday in Angels camp.

No word on whether it went smoothly. Heaney has been working through discomfort in his surgically-repaired left elbow and will open the season on the disabled list. The hope is he'll be ready when the Angels need a fifth starter on April 11, but that seems optimistic. Heaney, 26, has logged just six major league appearances over the last two seasons because of Tommy John surgery. "We'll keep our fingers crossed," manager Mike Scioscia told reporters on Tuesday.
Mar 27 - 11:46 PM

Andrew Heaney will miss his next scheduled start due to left elbow inflammation.

The left-hander underwent an MRI already which ruled out ligament damage. He'll be cleared to resume throwing once the inflammation subsides. It remains unclear how long he'll be sidelined though.
Mar 19 - 6:53 PM

Andrew Heaney allowed five earned runs over 3 2/3 innings against the Rockies on Thursday.

Heaney didn't have it in this one, as he gave up a whopping eight hits in that time frame, although he did strike out two while walking one. This was his worst start in Arizona this spring, but that's partially due to the fact he's been excellent priot to Thursday. Health has consistently been an issue for Heaney, but if he's able to stay on the mound, he could have a breakout campaign for the Angels.
Mar 15 - 5:52 PM

Andrew Heaney struck out five batters over three shutout innings Monday in a Cactus League start against the Reds.

Another fine Cactus League outing for Heaney, who has now worked five scoreless frames this spring. The 26-year-old left-hander has logged just six major league starts over the last two seasons because of injuries and he had a brutal 7.06 ERA over 21 2/3 innings in 2017, but he's still a highly-regarded talent and 2018 could be a big bounceback year for him if he can stay healthy. That'd be a terrific development for the Angels.
Mar 5 - 5:09 PM

Angels and LHP Andrew Heaney avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $800,000 contract.

Heaney can also receive bonuses related to awards. The 26-year-old southpaw has made just total six starts over the last two years due to injuries and struggled to a 7.06 ERA in his five starts in 2017. He should claim a spot in the Angels' rotation this spring if his health cooperates.
Jan 9 - 3:55 PM

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.

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.
