Andrew Heaney not to be ignored
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Let's face it: Even if he did inherit a rotation spot, Andrew Heaney probably wouldn't be your first choice to add off the waiver wire in standard mixed leagues given the way he performed with the big club just before the All-Star break and with Triple-A New Orleans thereafter. But any time a prospect of his caliber has a shot at regular playing time, it's worth noting in all Fantasy formats.

And as I pointed out in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, Henderson Alvarez's strained oblique gives Heaney that shot.

His numbers in the PCL wouldn't suggest he's a finished product, but it is a hitter's league. Generally speaking, he throws strikes and misses bats, which is exactly what you want to see from a young left-hander, but he's already thrown about 60 more innings than he had all of last year.

If I was looking to add a starting pitcher who was just called up for September, I'd go for Taijuan Walker before I went for Heaney, but that doesn't mean Heaney is someone to ignore.

Not too late for Andrew Heaney to contribute in '14
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

With the expansion of major league rosters less than a week away, the focus of many Fantasy owners is on potential pickups among the September callups. There could be some big names, like Joc Pederson, Francisco Lindor, Archie Bradley, and eventually, Rusney Castillo, coming up, but the one who could make the biggest impact is Andrew Heaney.

Unlike the aforementioned prospects, Heaney has already made his major league debut, and his four-start stint this summer with the Marlins was less than auspicious. His July return to Triple-A didn't go all that smoothly either, but in August, the southpaw has gotten back on track. In five starts this month, Heaney has held opponents to a .198 batting average while striking out 30 batters and walking 10 over 28 2/3 innings.

Though his 3.77 ERA for the month may not look all that impressive, a sub-4.00 ERA in the Pacific Coast League deserves notice. So does a 1.80 ground-out-to-air-out ratio (per MinorLeagueBaseball.com), which has helped Heaney to allow just two home runs this month.

Given the recent struggles of Nathan Eovaldi and Brad Hand in the Marlins' rotation, there would seem to be an opportunity for Heaney to get another chance at the major league level. Given his recent body of work in the minors, he just might stand a better chance at succeeding this time around.

Andrew Heaney struggling in New Orleans
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Marlins premier pitching prospect Andrew Heaney did not thrive upon his promotion to the big league team and has proven disappointing since his demotion to Triple-A New Orleans.

Heaney has a 1-3 record and 5.96 ERA with the Zephyrs since going down. He gave up four earned runs in three innings pitched in his last start.

Marlins have plan for Andrew Heaney at Triple-A
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Marlins want to see Andrew Heaney back in the majors, but he is going to have to prove himself again at Triple-A before that happens, as general manager Dan Jennings told MLB.com Saturday.

"No matter how fast you want to speed up the clock, it still takes time to develop a prospect," Marlins general manager Dan Jennings said. "It does. There's finer points of the game, that until you're polished, when you get up here, they're exposed."

Heaney was tagged with 15 earned runs in 20 2/3 innings in four starts in the majors, after dominating at Triple-A. He put up a 2.74 ERA in his first 23 innings at New Orleans, but the team wants to see him use his change up more while controlling both sides of the plate.

"Those were things that were identified for him in the offseason," Jennings said. "He's made strides."

He was skipped in the rotation the first time through at New Orleans, in an effort to keep him available to pitch in September, even with an innings limit.
