Angels | Andrew Heaney sharp in victory

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 22:54:12 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney allowed just one run and two hits with two walks and seven strikeouts over seven innings in a win against the New York Yankees Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney ($4,600; or 9.2% of cap) is filling in for the injured Jered Weaver, but he might be staking his claim to a rotation spot in the process. FantasyScore players will want to roll with him as long as he sticks around.

Angels | Andrew Heaney starting Wednesday

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 09:36:11 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney was recalled from Class AAA Salt Lake Wednesday, June 24, to face the Houston Astros. SP Matt Shoemaker was originally scheduled to start, and there's no word as to why he was scratched.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney is a top-flight prospect worth watching on FantasyScore.

Angels | Cory Rasmus could start

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 18:11:30 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Cory Rasmus (abdomen) is an option to move into the rotation in place of the injured SP Jered Weaver (hip), according to manager Mike Scioscia. Rasmus would only be able to throw three or four innings, however, as he makes his way back from injury. Class AAA Salt Lake SPs Andrew Heaney, Drew Rucinski, Alex Sanabia, Nick Tropeano and Adam Wilk are also options.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus should be avoided for fantasy purposes, at least initially, since he'll have an innings cap. Pitching just a few innings would not be attractive for FantasyScore owners.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker's job in danger?

Fri, 22 May 2015 08:48:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker appears to be on a short leash, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia was noncommittal on making a roster move just yet. "I think that Matty has thrown some really good games so far this year and some games where he struggled," he said. "We want to see what direction he's going to go. If we were talking after the game he just pitched in Baltimore, you guys were asking a lot of different questions. It's in there. He just needs to find the consistency." SP Andrew Heaney has pitched well in Class AAA ball and could be poised to take Shoemaker's spot in the rotation if the latter continues to struggle.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has surrendered nine home runs in his last four starts and shouldn't be played by fantasy owners until he shows signs of righting the ship. Heaney could be a speculative add in deep setups.

Angels | Andrew Heaney once again struggles

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 17:33:05 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney pitched 4 2/3 innings and allowed four runs on eight hits, a walk and three strikeouts Tuesday, March 24.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney is considered the favorite for a rotation spot. That said, this poor outing isn't likely to help him strengthen his hold on the job. He's a young pitcher with upside but more of an AL-only option than a mixed league consideration.

Angels | Andrew Heaney favorite for rotation spot

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 10:46:11 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney is the favorite to lock down the fifth starter spot, but he'll have to prove himself to stay in the majors when SP Garrett Richards (knee) returns in mid-April. Heaney gave up six runs and seven hits while walking one in 3 1/3 innings Thursday, March 19, to move his spring ERA up to 8.68. However, manager Mike Scioscia was encouraged with how Heaney responded to the shellacking.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney is a young arm worth watching after being one of the Miami Marlins' top pitching prospects. He has plenty to learn in the majors, and he'd likely benefit from more seasoning in the minors. With that in mind, he's more of an AL-only target, since he'll likely be without a rotation spot after the first month of the season.

Angels | Andrew Heaney has shot at LAA rotation

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 12:23:25 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney has a "legitimate shot" at cracking the starting rotation, according to manager Mike Scioscia. "We think he's ready for the challenge of the major leagues," Scioscia said. "(Making a team for the first time) is sometimes the toughest bridge for a player to cross."

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Heaney's progress. Heaney may be worth a flyer in late rounds of mixed leagues and deeper AL leagues if he makes the starting rotation.

Angels | Andrew Heaney declares himself ready

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 15:57:16 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney believes his struggles in the majors last season prepared him for spring training and battling for a rotation spot. "It helped a lot," Heaney said. "I'm always going to be grateful for getting that opportunity to be able to go up there and experience it and face those kind of hitters and get kind of picked on a little bit."

Fantasy Tip: The key acquisition in the deal sending Howie Kendrick from the Angels, Heaney posted a 2.69 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and a 3.71 strikeout-to-walk ratio during his minor league career. He'll have competition, but a strong spring should cement his spot in the team's rotation. Currently, he is a late-round flier in drafts, but his stock could rise in a hurry with an excellent showing during spring training.
