Heaney (6-8) allowed four runs on six hits and struck out four over four innings, taking the loss versus Baltimore on Monday.
The southpaw gave up a season-high four home runs in the contest, although all were of the solo shot variety. Heaney has now allowed 20 homers across 19 starts this year. He has a 5.42 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 117:31 K:BB across 98 innings. He'll hope to keep the ball in the yard better when he makes his next start versus Seattle this weekend.
Heaney is scheduled to start in his Yankees debut Monday against the Orioles in New York, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Rather than making a big swing to upgrade their rotation ahead of the trade deadline, the Yankees opted for a buy-low move with the addition of Heaney, who turned in a solid 20.4 K-BB% but a less palatable 5.27 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over 18 starts with the Angels. Though most of his peripherals point to some likely improvement in his ERA, Heaney has been bit hard by the long ball (1.5 HR/9) this season, and Yankee Stadium won't be the most favorable environment for him to make progress on that front.
Heaney was sent from the Angels to the Yankees in exchange for Janson Junk and Elvis Peguero on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Heaney owns a 5.27 ERA in 18 starts this season, though that hides a much more impressive set of peripherals. His 28.2 percent strikeout rate and 7.7 percent walk rate are both strong numbers and should in theory be enough to offset a low 33.5 percent groundball rate going forward, as his 4.05 FIP and 3.81 xFIP suggest. Being a flyball pitcher could cause problems for the lefty in Yankee Stadium, however.
Heaney allowed three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out eight over six innings Wednesday against the Rockies. He did not factor into the decision.
Heaney put together back-to-back quality starts this season for just the second time Wednesday after holding the Rockies to three runs over six innings. He got off to a rough start after two-run homer from Trevor Story in the first inning, but he settled in thereafter, only allowing another run to score on a wild pitch in the fourth. The 30-year-old has had an up-and-down season but is currently riding a nice groove heading into August. Heaney owns a 5.27 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 113:31 K:BB over 94 innings and is set up for a rewarding matchup against the Rangers next week.
Heaney (6-7) earned the win Thursday against the Twins after tossing seven innings of two-run ball, allowing four hits and two walks while fanning seven.
Heaney hadn't pitched more than 5.1 innings in any of his three previous starts, but he bounced back admirably here with his longest outing and sixth quality start of the year. The veteran southpaw owns a 5.40 ERA since the beginning of June, but this performance was clearly a step in the right direction. He's expected to make his next start next week at home against the Rockies.
Heaney (5-7) allowed four earned runs on six hits while striking out four across four innings, taking the loss to the Mariners on Friday.
Heaney surrendered a two-run homer to Kyle Seager as a part of a three-run third inning. The 30-year-old has struggled in his last five starts, going 1-4 with a 8.49 ERA and 1.67 WHIP across 23.1 innings. His current 5.56 ERA is set to be his worst career ERA in any season that he pitched at least 30 innings. The southpaw will look to turn the tide in his next start Thursday in Minnesota.
Heaney (5-6) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks with five strikeouts in 5.1 innings to earn the win Wednesday over Boston.
Heaney was touched up for seven runs in three innings versus the Yankees in his previous start, but he bounced back well Wednesday. The southpaw is still in a bit of a rut, with 18 runs allowed in his last 19.1 innings, but he was able to snap a three-start losing streak. The 30-year-old owns a 5.38 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 94:26 K:BB across 77 innings through the first half of the season.
Heany (4-6) took the loss Tuesday against the Yankees after surrendering seven runs on five hits with four strikeouts and four walks across three innings.
Heaney needed 77 pitches to record nine outs and tied a pair of his season worsts by issuing four free passes and serving up three homers. It's the third consecutive loss for the left-hander, who now has a 5.40 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 89:24 K:BB over 71.2 innings through 14 starts.
Heaney (4-5) took the loss against San Francisco on Tuesday, allowing five runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out 10 over six innings.
The left-hander got into big trouble early, giving up four runs in the first inning and another in the second. He recovered to give the Angels six frames and 107 pitches, but the team's offense was unable to muster any protest against San Francisco's pitching. Heaney's outing wasn't a complete disaster, as he tied his season high with 10 strikeouts and didn't issue any free passes for the first time since May 12. He will carry a 4.72 ERA into his next start, which is expected to come on the road against the Yankees early next week.
Heaney (4-4) took the loss against Oakland on Tuesday, pitching five innings and allowing three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out six.
The left-hander entered the contest riding a three-start win streak, and though he wasn't abysmal against the Athletics, he was outdueled by opposing starter Frankie Montas to end up with the loss. Heaney did extend his streak of pitching at least five innings and allowing three or fewer runs to four games, and he didn't allow any long balls for the third straight contest. He owns a 4.45 ERA on the season and is tentatively scheduled to face San Francisco at home Tuesday in his next start.
Heaney (4-3) allowed one earned run on six hits and two walks while striking out seven across 6.2 innings, earning the win over the Royals on Tuesday.
Heaney's only run allowed came on a Hanser Alberto double in the seventh inning. He threw 109 pitches in 6.2 innings, one pitch short of his season high. After having six starts in a row without earning a win, Heaney has been victorious in his last three outings. The 30-year-old's ERA is down to 4.37 and he has a 10.8 K/9 in 57.2 innings. He will have to wait until next week to make his next start due to the Angels running a six-man rotation.
Heaney limited the Giants to one run over 6.1 innings to even his record at 3-3 in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Angels. He scattered five hits and one walk while striking out seven in the start.
After failing to secure a quality start in each of his last three outings, Heaney showed improved command and control to stymie a Giants offense that's been one of the majors' stronger units versus left-handed pitching this season. The 29-year-old has long teased the ability to shut down an offense on a given night, but start-to-start consistency is still an issue for Heaney in his eighth season in the big leagues. With a 4.76 ERA (3.62 xFIP), 1.24 WHIP and 21.1 K-BB% through his first 10 outings, Heaney is probably best viewed as more of a streaming option than a must-start pitcher in shallower leagues.
Heaney (2-3) earned the win over Texas on Tuesday, hurling 5.2 innings and allowing three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out five.
It wasn't an especially impressive outing for the southpaw -- he threw only 66 of 105 pitches for strikes and issued a season-high four walks -- but he stuck around long enough to earn his first victory since April 9. Heaney did induce 16 swinging strikes in the contest despite finishing with a modest five strikeouts. Heaney has struggled with a 7.71 ERA and 1.79 WHIP over his past three contests, so he'll certainly take this win despite the mediocre showing. His next start is tentatively projected to come at San Francisco early next week.
Heaney allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out just one batter over three innings Tuesday against Cleveland. He did not factor into the decision.
Heaney allowed all five runs in the first inning. The damage started on a two-run homer by Jose Ramirez and worsened after another two runners crossed home on a fielding error and the final run of the frame scored on a sacrifice fly. The 30-year-old had little trouble the rest of his outing but had to be pulled after just three innings with his pitch count already at 81. Heaney's ability to miss plenty of bats is typically his saving grace, but he managed just one strikeout Tuesday while walking two batters in a disappointing performance. He'll take a 5.31 ERA into his next scheduled start against Oakland over the weekend.
Heaney (1-3) allowed five earned runs on nine hits while striking out five across 5.1 innings to take the loss to the Astros on Wednesday.
Heaney was lit up for three home runs on Wednesday. Jose Altuve hit one off the foul pole on the first pitch of the game and things never got better for Heaney. The 30-year-old is very inconsistent this season, with his outings performances ranging from a 10-strikeout scoreless effort to efforts like Wednesday. His 12.3 K/9 is fourth highest in the American League, but he also carries a 4.75 ERA through 36 innings.
Heaney did not allow a run on four hits and walked one while striking out 10 over 6.2 innings of work in Thursday's loss to the Rays. He didn't factor into the decision.
The lefty had his best outing of the year, as he threw 60 of his 95 pitches for strikes. The 29-year-old now holds a 4.20 ERA on the year, but his sterling 44:10 K:BB and 1.04 WHIP suggest that he'll be able to bring that number down.
Heaney (1-2) took the loss against Seattle on Friday, pitching 3.1 innings and allowing four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five.
The right-hander came into the contest riding a strong three-game stretch during which he allowed only three earned runs over 17.2 frames. Seattle put an end to the string of excellent starts, swatting three homers off Heaney and putting up four runs. The hurler needed 90 pitches to record 10 outs, and he left following a Tom Murphy long ball with one out in the fourth inning. A pair of blowups early in the campaign has elevated Heaney's ERA to 5.25, though he has posted an excellent 34:9 K:BB across 24 frames. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Thursday at home against Tampa Bay.
Heaney allowed one run on two hits over 6.1 innings Friday, striking out 10 in a loss to Houston. He did not factor in the decision.
Heaney cruised through the Astros' lineup, allowing just one baserunner through six innings. He was removed after coughing up a one-out double to Yordan Alvarez in the seventh and was charged with a run after Aaron Slegers was taken deep by Yuli Gurriel. Since his brutal first start of the season, Heaney owns a 25:5 K:BB while allowing just three runs over 17.2 frames. The 29-year-old southpaw will take the mound in Seattle next Friday.
Heaney allowed two runs on two hits and three walks over 5.1 innings in Friday's win over Minnesota. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.
Heaney was mostly untouched through five innings of work but got into a bit of trouble to start the sixth. He allowed the first two batters to reach base before striking out Jake Cave. He was then relieved by Aaron Slegers who allowed three runs to score, including two charged to Heaney. The 6-foot-2 lefty will carry a 5.65 ERA into next Thursday's start in Houston.
Heaney (1-1) earned the win Friday versus the Blue Jays, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out nine over six scoreless innings.
Heaney had a tough season debut against the White Sox, giving up seven runs in three innings, but he rebounded with a much better second start as he allowed only three runners to get past first base. The southpaw has posted a 13:4 K:BB across nine innings this season. Heaney is expected to face the Twins next Friday but could instead see the Royals earlier in the week, depending on the pitching availability of Shohei Ohtani (finger).
