Heaney landed on the 10-day injured list with left shoulder inflammation Saturday.
The move was backdated to Wednesday, so Heaney will be eligible to return next Saturday after missing just one start. It's not yet clear whether or not he's expected to return after the minimum or if a longer absence is anticipated. The Angels have said that they don't expect Heaney to require surgery but haven't specified a timeline beyond that, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports. Adalberto Mejia was claimed off waivers in a corresponding move.
Heaney did not factor into the decision against Houston on Tuesday, hurling 4.1 innings and allowing two runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five.
Heaney was gifted a six-run lead after the first inning but couldn't stick around long enough to pick up the win, needing 103 pitches to retire 13 batters. He gave up only one extra-base hit but was constantly in trouble, allowing two or more baserunners in each inning. His saving grace was his ability to punch batters out; four of his five strikeouts came with runners in scoring position. The 28-year-old will carry a 5.09 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 54:19 K:BB into Seattle on Sunday in his next scheduled start.
Heaney (1-3) took the loss Saturday as the Angels fell 4-0 to the Astros, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over five innings while striking out five.
It wasn't a bad outing for the southpaw, but with Gerrit Cole in top form opposite him, Heaney couldn't afford to make any mistakes. He'll carry a 5.18 ERA and 49:17 K:BB through 41.2 innings into the All-Star break.
Heaney (1-2) struck out eight and allowed five runs on six hits and one walk across six innings while taking the loss Sunday against the Angels.
Heaney was scored upon in three different innings, with the major blow coming on a three-run homer by Matt Chapman in the fifth inning. He pitched well for the most part, throwing 68 percent strikes and reaching eight punchouts for the fourth time in eight outings. The inconsistent Heaney now has a 5.40 ERA for the season and will face another difficult matchup in his next start on the road against Houston.
Heaney (1-1) took the win against Cincinnati on Tuesday, hurling 5.1 innings and giving up one run on five hits and four walks while striking out four.
It was far from an easy outing for Heaney as he once again struggled with his control, allowing four walks and throwing balls on 40 of 101 pitches, but he managed to constantly squeeze out of trouble with the help of a pair of double plays and two runners thrown out on the basepaths (including one at home). Though the 28-year-old has posted an impressive 10.6 K/9 this season, his walk rate (4.1 BB/9) and struggles keeping the ball in the park (eight home runs in 30.2 innings) have held him back considerably. He'll carry a 4.99 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into a home matchup against Oakland on Sunday in his next scheduled start.
Heaney allowed five earned runs on four hits and four walks while striking out two across 3.2 innings Wednesday against the Blue Jays. He did not factor into the decision.
Heaney walked at least one batter in three of the four innings he pitched, and in the remaining frame he threw a wild pitch. The majority of the damage against him came on a three-run homer by Rowdy Tellez, but Heaney was ultimately pulled after allowing a two-RBI single to Eric Sogard. Though he has an inflated 5.68 ERA through 25.1 innings, Heaney has also contributed a solid 1.14 WHIP and has 32 punchouts in five starts. He'll look to get back on track in his next outing, currently scheduled for Tuesday against the Reds.
Heaney allowed one run on two hits with two strikeouts and three walks across five innings during a no-decision against the Rays on Friday.
The 28-year-old had his best outing of the season, but the Angels bullpen spoiled it, allowing eight runs in the final four frames. While he's still looking for his first win, Heaney has really only had one bad start, and he usually racks up plenty of strikeouts for his owners. In four starts, he is 0-1 with a 4.57 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 30 strikeouts in 21.2 innings this season. His next outing is scheduled to be at the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
Heaney is scheduled to start Friday's game versus the Rays, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Heaney could have pitched Thursday if the Angels wanted to slide him up in the starting rotation, but he'll instead receive the extra day of rest. The 28-year-old has a 5.40 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and an impressive 28:3 K:BB through his first three starts, though he's also already served up six homers.
Heaney (0-1) was charged with the loss Friday against the Mariners, allowing five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out 10 through 5.2 innings.
In just his third start since recovering from his elbow issues and coming off the IL, Heaney punched out 10 batters for the second straight game. The left-hander retired the first eight batters before giving up a pair of singles and a walk in the fourth inning to knot the score at 1-1. Heaney then allowed a home run to Domingo Santana in the fifth and a three-run homer to Tom Murphy in the sixth to give Seattle a 5-1 lead. The 28-year-old now owns a 5.40 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 28:3 K:BB. He'll look to earn his first win Thursday against Tampa Bay.
Heaney struck out 10 and gave up three runs on five hits over six innings in a 6-3 win over the Mariners. He did not walk a batter or factor in the decision.
Heaney dominated Seattle's lineup with the exception of one hitter, as Edwin Encarnacion accounted for all three runs with a pair of homers. It was still a productive outing for the left-hander, who exhibited good control by delivering first-pitch strikes to 17 of the 23 batters he faced. Heaney has allowed five runs and has a 18:1 K:BB over his first two starts, and he lines up to face the Mariners again next weekend.
Heaney pitched five effective innings but did not factor into the decision against the Rangers on Sunday, allowing two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out eight.
After missing the first part of the season with an injured elbow, Heaney showed little rust in his season debut, allowing only a pair of solo home runs and retiring 15 of the 18 batters he faced. He was limited to 85 pitches but still managed to rack up eight strikeouts. After compiling a 9-10 record and 9.0 K/9 in 180 innings last season, Heaney figures to be a key part of the Angels' rotation for the remainder of 2019 if he can maintain his health. He's scheduled to face Seattle in his next start Friday.
The Angels officially activated Heaney (elbow) from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Rangers, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Reliever Jaime Barria was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake to open up a spot on the active roster for Heaney in advance of his 2019 debut. Despite his prolonged shutdown, Heaney only needed one minor-league rehab start to convince the Angels he was ready to rejoin the big club. He notched 10 strikeouts over 4.1 scoreless innings for Salt Lake on Monday while tossing 73 pitches, so he shouldn't be subject to any significant restrictions versus Texas.
Heaney (elbow) will be activated from the 10-day injured list and start Sunday's game against the Rangers, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Heaney was lights out in his last rehab outing with Triple-A Salt Lake, tossing 4.1 scoreless frames and fanning 10 -- and proving one last time to his skipper that he's ready to return to the big leagues. The southpaw will make his season debut Sunday after battling through a left elbow issue for the first couple months of the 2019 campaign.
Heaney (elbow) tossed 4.1 scoreless innings in his rehab start Monday with Triple-A Salt Lake. He gave up two hits and one walk and struck out 10.
Making his first appearance in affiliated ball this season, Heaney pumped in 46 of his 73 pitches for strikes while making quick work of a quality Las Vegas lineup. The elevated pitch count makes it likely that Heaney won't require another rehab start in the minors before returning from the 10-day injured list, but the Angels will likely wait and see how he looks during a between-starts bullpen session until ruling on his next step. He's tentatively being penciled in for his 2019 Angels debut Sunday at home versus the Rangers.
Heaney (elbow) could return from the 10-day injured list in time to start Sunday's game against Texas, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Heaney is slated to throw another rehab outing Monday night, his second start for the Bees. The Angels still haven't named a starter for Sunday's matchup, so assuming all goes well, the southpaw could find himself back in the big leagues by the weekend.
Heaney (elbow) will make his next rehab start at Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Heaney (elbow) threw four innings in an extended spring training game Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Heaney fired 58 pitches in Wednesday's outing and said he felt fine afterward. Assuming the southpaw checks out OK in the coming days, he'll likely be cleared to join a minor-league affiliate for his next outing. Heaney is expected to make two rehab starts before rejoining the Angels.
Heaney (elbow) will make a rehab start at extended spring training Wednesday, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Heaney (elbow) is expected to soon begin a rehab assignment which should last for three starts, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Heaney (elbow) threw 44 pitches across three innings without issue in an extended spring training game Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
This is excellent news for Heaney, who continues to progress at a nice pace. He's been battling an elbow injury since the beginning of March but will aim to put together back-to-back sessions without issue in the near the future. The team has yet to release details on when his next outing will take place.
