The tale of two MLB debuts - follow up

I wrote yesterday about two pitchers making their MLB debuts in starts for their respective teams. The topic interested me because I am always rooting for a new guy to make an impression. But the difference between the two situations was so striking as to make it all the more interesting. The two pitchers were a phenom, highly touted prospect and a fighter who rode the buses in...

Prospect Watch: Heaney, Pino and Parker Debut

Each weekday during the minor-league season, FanGraphs is providing a status update on multiple rookie-eligible players. Note that Age denotes the relevant prospect’s baseball age (i.e. as of July 1st of the current year); Top-15, the prospect’s place on Marc Hulet’s preseason organizational list; and Top-100, that same prospect’s rank on Hulet’s overall top-100 list...

Andrew Heaney shows composure in solid MLB debut for Marlins

MIAMI -- Miami Marlins left-hander Andrew Heaney exudes a calm demeanor, but he admitted to being nervous Thursday night for his major-league debut against the New York Mets. His wife dropped him off at Marlins Park around 3:30 p.m., because he couldn't continue pacing his hotel room. Even his family visiting from Oklahoma knew to give him space. While teammates began to filter...

Fantasy Roundup: Heaney’s Call-Up

Marlins top prospect Andrew Heaney will make his major league debut on Thursday against the Mets. The biggest takeaway from the scouting reports I’ve read is he doesn’t have overpowering swing-and-miss stuff, but he has above average control of all three of his pitches (fastball, slider, and change-up). His best secondary offering is the slider can be “thrown for strikes and...

A tale of two MLB debuts - Andrew Heaney and Yohan Pino

Two pitchers will make their first Major League starts tonight--Yohan Pino for the Twins and Andrew Heaney for the Marlins. Their two paths to this point could not have been more different. Heaney was a Number One draft pick, but he's only pitched three seasons in the minors (this year being his third). Yohan Pino is not 23 like Heaney. Pino is 30-years-old and has been beating...

New York Mets at Miami Marlins series primer

Highly touted prospect Andrew Heaney will make his major-league debut on Thursday night as the Miami Marlins (36-35) host the New York Mets (32-40) for a four-game set at Marlins Park. The ninth overall selection of the 2012 First-Year Player Draft dominated at both Double-A Jacksonville and Triple-A New Orleans this season. "It's surreal," Heaney said. "I feel...

Game 2014.67 Royals at Tigers

After dropping Game 1 of the crucial Tigers/Royals series, the Tigers come back with one of their A-list starters to try to even things up, and keep their tenuous hold on first place in the Parity Division. Don’t worry about Justin Verlander though, he will get things back together, so says Verlander Nemesis Billy Butler: He’s going to come back to the form he was. That’s...

MMO Game Recap: Mets 1, Marlins 0

The Mets (33-40) won their second straight game, taking the opening game of the series from the Marlins (36-36) by the score of 1-0. All of the pre-game talk was about Marlins youngster Andrew Heaney, who was making his first Major League start. However it was the Mets own young starter who stole the show. Zack Wheeler took the mound coming off of losses in his last two starts, but...

New York Mets at Miami Marlins game preview

TV: FOX SPORTS FLORIDA TIME: PREGAME COVERAGE BEGINS AT 6:30 P.M. The Miami Marlins' starting pitching staff has looked rather pedestrian since Jose Fernandez went down with a season-ending arm injury five weeks ago. Now, Miami is turning to another of its top prospects to hopefully give a boost to a struggling rotation. Andrew Heaney makes his major league debut Thursday night...
