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.

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'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.
May 18 - 3:02 PM

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.
May 13 - 3:23 PM

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.
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 prior to the season. Still just 23 years old, Heaney is penciled into the Dodgers rotation heading into spring training.
