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. Jul 23 - 2:59 PM

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.
Jul 5 - 6:23 PM

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.
Jul 5 - 5:36 PM

Andrew Heaney fell to 0-3, allowing four runs over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Athletics.

Heaney was mostly strong, blanking the A's over the first five innings. But the A's mounted a two-out rally in the sixth, singling three times in a row to drive in one run before Nate Freiman gave his club the lead with a three-run home run. Overall, Heaney allowed eight hits, walked none, and struck out four. The rookie lefty will carry a 5.29 ERA, a 1.12 WHIP, and a 12/3 K/BB ratio into his next start on the road against the Cardinals.
Jun 29 - 4:14 PM

Andrew Heaney fell to 0-2 after allowing five runs over five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies.

The Phillies were on top of Heaney early, scoring three times in the first inning and once more in the second. The lefty allowed four hits -- including Marlon Byrd's two-run home run in the first inning -- while walking two and striking out five. A consensus top prospect, Heaney has a 4.91 ERA with a 1.00 WHIP and an 8/3 K/BB ratio over his first two starts. He has a tough task ahead of him, as he will match up against the Athletics at home in his next start.

Andrew Heaney pitched well but took the loss in his major league debut, allowing one run over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Mets.

Heaney had the misfortune of opposing Zack Wheeler on this night, as Wheeler was on top of his game and polished off a complete game shutout. Heaney, one of baseball's top prospects, dominated the competition between Double-A and Triple-A prior to his call-up. The left-hander allowed only four hits and a walk while striking out three. The only mistake came on a first inning solo home run to David Wright. He'll take on the Phillies on the road in his next start.
Jun 19 - 9:51 PM

Marlins purchased the contract of LHP Andrew Heaney from Triple-A New Orleans.

One of the top prospects in baseball, Heaney should be scooped up in all fantasy leagues where he is still available. The 23-year-old left-hander was sporting a 2.47 ERA, 1.096 WHIP, and 79/15 K/BB ratio in 76 2/3 innings this season between Double-A Jacksonville and Triple-A New Orleans. He carries front-line starter potential, and will make his major league debut on Thursday against the Mets.
Jun 16 - 2:59 PM

Marlins pitching prospect Andrew Heaney will be skipped on his next turn through the Triple-A rotation.

It's just a bit of rest so that the Marlins can slow his innings pace. Heaney struck out nine batters over six frames of one-run ball in his last start for Triple-A New Orleans and owns a 2.47 ERA with 79 strikeouts in 76 2/3 total minor league innings this season. The 23-year-old left-hander should make his major league debut this summer.
Jun 12 - 12:11 PM

Marlins left-handed pitching prospect Andrew Heaney struck out nine batters in six innings for Triple-A New Orleans on Saturday.

Heaney scattered five singles and one walk, allowing one run in a great bounce back outing after his worst outing while in Triple-A. Heaney has the potential to be a solid No. 2 pitcher, and could make his major league debut this summer.
Jun 8 - 10:44 AM

Andrew Heaney has been promoted to Triple-A New Orleans.

It is a well-deserved promotion for the 22-year-old top pitching prospect, who had a 2.35 ERA and 52/13 K/BB ratio through 53 2/3 innings this season at Double-A Jacksonville. Heaney could reach the majors in June.
May 20 - 4:47 PM

The Marlins are expected to promote prospect left-hander Andrew Heaney to Triple-A New Orleans this week.

Triple-A New Orleans has "TBA" listed as Thursday's starter, but all signs point to Heaney getting the nod. And why not, as the 22-year-old owns a 2.35 ERA and 52/13 K/BB ratio in 53 2/3 innings over eight starts and one relief appearance in Double-A this year. If all goes well in Triple-A, he could find himself in the majors at some point in June.
May 20 - 11:23 AM

Marlins prospect LHP Andrew Heaney was brilliant once again on Sunday, allowing one earned run on three hits with nine strikeouts in seven innings for Double-A Jacksonville.

Heaney has been lights out since surrendering three runs on 10 hits in his season debut. Over his last three starts, the 22-year-old has allowed just one run on eight hits in 19 innings, and owns a 22/2 strikeout-to-walk ratio during that span. Heaney doesn't have much more to prove at Double-A and could be in store for an early promotion to Triple-A New Orleans, or possibly even the major leagues.
Apr 21 - 1:52 PM

Marlins prospect LHP Andrew Heaney was outstanding on Tuesday, allowing just a hit and walk while striking out five in six scoreless innings for Double-A Jacksonville.

After giving up three runs on 10 hits in his season debut, Heaney, 22, has been lights out in his last two starts, allowing five total hits in 12 shutout frames with a 13/2 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Given Heaney's success in Double-A dating back to last season, it might not be long until he receives a promotion to the major leagues.
Apr 16 - 1:18 PM

Marlins prospect LHP Andrew Heaney dominated on Thursday for Double-A Jacksonville, allowing four hits and a walk with eight strikeouts in six shutout frames.

The 22-year-old left-hander struggled in his season debut last week, but he now owns a 2.38 ERA and 11/2 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 11 1/3 innings on the year following Thursday's outing. Heaney had an outstanding 2013 campaign, posting a 1.60 ERA and 89/26 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 95 1/3 innings between High-A Jupiter and Double-A Jacksonville after opening the year on the disabled list. The southpaw is arguably one of Miami's five-best starters at the moment, so it's only a matter of time until he's called upon to join the rotation.
Apr 11 - 2:45 PM

Marlins left-handed pitching prospect Andrew Heaney was hit hard in his return to Double-A Jacksonville.

Heaney failed to impress in his first outing in 2014, allowing three runs and ten hits over 5 1/3 innings while striking out three batters. Heaney struck out 6.1 batters per nine innings while in Double-A in 2013, and his rate (albeit after one start) is just 5.1 per nine innings. Watch to see if his rate can get back above his career 8.6K/9 to signal when he may go to Triple-A New Orleans or Miami.
