Marlins send down Heaney, activate Hechavarria, Koehler

The Marlins sent down starting pitcher Andrew Heaney to Triple-A on Saturday after a rough start against the Cardinals in which he allowed five runs on eight hits over 3 2/3 innings. The team also sent Jake Marisnick down, removed Adeiny Hechaverria from the 15-day DL and reinstated Tom Koehler from the paternity list. Heaney avoided the loss in a no-decision against St. Louis, but...

Fantasy Roundup: Still Buying Heaney

Last night I finally got an opportunity to get a look at Andrew Heaney as I watched his entire start against the Phillies1. For the first two innings his command was extremely loose; he had trouble locating all of his pitches. When he threw the fastball for strikes he couldn’t locate the curveball and vice versa. The lack of command was why he gave up the two-run home run to Marlon...

One Man’s Trash: Fishing For An Arm

This week's biggest add was Marlins hurler Andrew Heaney, whose ownership percentage rose +59% after his call up and strong debut last week. JB Gilpin broke it down in yesterday's Pitcher Profile. Heaney should only get better tonight against a Phillies lineup that has struggled offensively at home this season. The 23-year-old lefty was this season's big pitching prospect...

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...

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...

New York Mets at Miami Marlins series primer

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...

Week 12 MLB Transaction Trends: Could Andrew Heaney be 2014′s Jose Fernandez?

Heaney will be the 10th member of Baseball America's top 30 MLB prospects to make his 2014 debut, for several reasons leap-frogging other top pitching prospects. He opened the season in Double-A, making eight starts and posting a 2.35 ERA with fairly impressive 8.72 K/9 and 2.18 BB/9 ratios. He earned his promotion to Triple-A where he made four more starts, going undefeated...

Marlins Open Sesame To Heaney

I love when I tell you to pick up a player and he comes up days later. It makes me smile, and not one of those weird Japanese emoji smiles, but a full-faced grin. So, Andrew Heaney, you're already okay in my book, even if that book is called, "Rookie Pitchers Will Fill You With Enthusiasm Until They Actually Pitch For Your Fantasy Team." If you missed my Andrew Heaney...
