Andrew Heaney gave up four runs and three homers in five innings Wednesday versus the Rangers.
Heaney's velocity was better tonight than in his season debut last week against the Orioles, but he still gave up eight hits, including the three big flies. It doesn't look like he'll be much of a fantasy option this year. Aug 24 - 1:58 AM

Andrew Heaney struggled in a no-decision against the Orioles in his 2017 debut on Friday, allowing five runs on seven hits over his five frames.

On the plus side, the left-hander punched out five on the night and didn't issue a walk. As was the case for Jeremy Hellickson on the other side, Heaney struggled to keep the ball in the yard, allowing four home runs. He'll do battle against the Rangers his next time out at home on Wednesday.

Angels activated LHP Andrew Heaney from the 60-day disabled list.

Heaney will make his season debut on Friday in Baltimore after completing the long rehab from Tommy John surgery. He put up a 2.60 ERA and 29/5 K/BB ratio over 27 2/3 innings on his rehab assignment, but it would probably still be wise for fantasy owners to see how he looks for a start or two before activating him, especially considering the tough first matchup.

Andrew Heaney (elbow) is scheduled to make his season debut Friday in Baltimore.

Heaney got the go-ahead after throwing a bullpen session in front of Angels coaches and trainers on Tuesday at Nationals Park. The 26-year-old left-hander is nearly 14 months removed from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and posted a promising 2.60 ERA and 29/5 K/BB ratio over 27 2/3 innings on his six-start minor league rehab assignment. He's looking like a potential fantasy sleeper for the stretch run.

Andrew Heaney (elbow) threw a bullpen session in front of Angels coaches and trainers on Tuesday at Nationals Park.

If he wakes up Wednesday with no abnormal discomfort, the 26-year-old left-hander should be cleared to join the Angels' rotation on Friday or Saturday in Baltimore. Heaney registered a sharp 2.60 ERA and 29/5 K/BB ratio over 27 2/3 innings on his six-start minor league rehab assignment. "He’s had just a seamless recovery and rehabilitation from [Tommy John surgery]," manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday. "Everything to this point has gone as well as you could ever expect. I think where he is right now, we’re very excited about it."
Aug 15 - 8:18 PM

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register suspects that Andrew Heaney (elbow) will be cleared to return to the Angels' rotation this weekend in Baltimore.

Heaney pitched well in his sixth rehab start Saturday with Triple-A Salt Lake, allowing just one run over seven innings against the Pacific Coast League affiliate of the Giants. The 26-year-old left-hander boasts a 2.60 ERA and 29/5 K/BB ratio over 27 2/3 total rehab frames and might be able to provide sneaky late-season fantasy value here in 2017. Heaney underwent Tommy John surgery last summer, after registering a 3.49 ERA across his first 18 starts with Anaheim in 2015.
Aug 14 - 7:40 PM

Andrew Heaney (elbow) will make another start for Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday.

There was talk of Heaney rejoining the starting rotation this weekend but instead he'll make at least one more start in Salt Lake. The left-hander has pitched reasonably well throughout the rehab process, logging a 3.05 ERA over five starts. Heaney underwent Tommy John surgery in July of 2016.
Aug 10 - 9:17 PM

Andrew Heaney's (elbow) next start could come with the Angels.

Heaney allowed two runs while striking out five across 5 2/3 innings on Sunday in his last rehab start with Triple-A Salt Lake. He holds a 3.05 ERA and an impressive 27/3 K/BB ratio over 20 2/3 frames in his five rehab outings so far. It's possible he could start in Seattle this weekend, or Heaney might make another start for Salt Lake. Manager Mike Scioscia said Monday that the club is still evaluating what the next step for Heaney should be.
Aug 8 - 10:15 AM

Andrew Heaney (elbow) scattered five hits and three runs over five innings Tuesday in a rehab start for Triple-A Salt Lake.

Heaney finished with seven strikeouts and didn't walk anyone while throwing 60 of his 81 pitches for strikes. His fastball velocity ranged from 88-92 mph. Tuesday marked the left-hander's first non-rookie league appearance since April of 2016. Now 13 months removed from Tommy John surgery, Heaney will likely need at least two more starts in Triple-A before he's ready to rejoin the Angels' rotation.
Aug 1 - 4:08 PM

Andrew Heaney's (elbow) next rehab start will come on Monday with Triple-A Salt Lake.

Heaney looked good in two starts for the Angels' Arizona League club and the Halos have decided to move him all the way up to their highest affiliate. The left-hander is 13 months removed from Tommy John surgery and is hoping to rejoin the Angels' rotation soon. He's worth stashing away in deeper leagues.
Jul 28 - 5:40 PM

Andrew Heaney (elbow) struck out seven batters over 4 2/3 scoreless innings Wednesday in the Arizona League.

Heaney also looked dominant in a rehab start last Thursday, striking out five batters in four scoreless frames, though he's facing teenagers in these Arizona League outings. The 26-year-old lefty should soon be cleared to advance his rehab assignment to one of the Angels' higher-level minor league affiliates and he could become an option for Anaheim's rotation around mid-to-late August. Heaney underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last July.
Jul 27 - 9:41 AM

Andrew Heaney (elbow) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Thursday in the rookie-level Arizona League.

It will be his first live appearance since he underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last July. If he is able to avoid setbacks, Heaney could join the Angels' starting rotation sometime in mid-to-late August. The 26-year-old former first-round pick holds a 4.09 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 141 career major league innings.
Jul 13 - 3:16 PM

Andrew Heaney (elbow) will begin pitching in the Arizona League.

Heaney has been throwing for a while but this will be his first game action since undergoing Tommy John surgery exactly one year ago today. He's still holding out hope of returning at some point this season and that remains a possibility if all goes according to plan. The right-hander carries a lifetime 4.09 ERA over 26 big league appearances including 24 starts.
Jul 1 - 9:03 PM

Andrew Heaney (elbow) is still hoping to return at some point this year.

Heaney has advanced to throwing "up-and-down" bullpen sessions (including breaks to simulate throwing multiple innings) and is about two weeks away from facing live hitters at the team's spring training facility in Arizona. He'll likely spend about six weeks in Arizona, which is roughly the length of a normal spring training. "I don’t know in what capacity, but I’m going to pitch somewhere," he said. July 1 will mark the one-year anniversary of Heaney's Tommy John surgery.
Jun 17 - 9:34 PM

Andrew Heaney (elbow) hasn't been ruled out for a return before the end of the season.

Heaney underwent Tommy John surgery last July and was originally expected to miss the entire 2017 season, but everything has gone well in his rehab and the door now appears to be open a crack. "We’re open-minded to whatever the outcome is," said Angels general manager Billy Eppler. "We are still a time away from the ultimate resolution, so I think it’s premature to say yes or no to that question. The way that he has recovered and responded to each mile marker, so to speak, along the race, probably allows some growing optimism. But we’re still a long ways away." Heaney is currently on a two-week break in his rehab, but he's scheduled to resume throwing bullpen sessions this weekend. He still has a long way to go, but making his way back to the majors down the stretch would at least provide some peace of mind going into the winter.
