Heaney allowed two runs on three hits and one walk with five strikeouts over four innings, taking a no-decision in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Braves.
It was nothing to write home about, but Heaney did his job Tuesday night. After allowing a pair of runs in the first inning, he settled down and conceded just two singles over his remaining three innings. Although he did get an early hook, the southpaw did not give up a home run for the first time since joining the Yankees. With Domingo German and Corey Kluber cresting over the horizon in their respective returns from shoulder injuries, rotation spots may soon be at a premium in The Bronx. For now, Heaney is expected to pitch next Monday against the Angels.
