  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Throws in minor-league game

    Heaney allowed a solo home run and struck out eight over five innings in a game against minor leaguers Friday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    Heaney increased his innings count during what has been a good week for Texas starting pitching. Both Nathan Eovaldi and Jacob deGrom returned to the spring rotation after missing time due to side injuries. Jon Gray threw four shutout innings Thursday before Eovaldi's 3.1 scoreless Friday, and Martin Perez helped Venezuela eliminate the favored Dominican Republic in the WBC. Heaney should take up residence somewhere in the top three spots and could be an option for Opening Day given the delays experienced by deGrom and Eovaldi.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Gets up and down three times

    Heaney allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out five over 2.2 innings in Sunday's spring start against the Mariners.

    Heaney worked around a pair of hits in two scoreless innings before Seattle got to him in the third. He was pulled with two outs in the inning but came back out to start the fourth, giving him another chance to move from the bench to the mound. After hitting the first batter in the fourth, his day was done. He made working on his changeup a priority in his third Cactus League start, per Kevin Sherrington of the Dallas Morning News. Heaney will get another three appearances in preparation for the regular season. The left-hander has allowed four runs on nine hits and four walks while striking out 11 over 7.1 spring innings.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Gives up two HRs in debut

    Heaney allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out two over 1.2 innings in Wednesday's spring game against the Dodgers.

    Heaney, making his spring and team debut after signing with the Rangers in the offseason, found himself in 2-0 hole against leadoff batter Mookie Betts, who drilled a middle-middle fastball over the fence in left field. "I don't want to start my first game of spring training going 3-0 on a guy or nibbling," Heaney told Kennedi Landry of "So I was like, 'I'm just gonna kind of throw it at him down the middle.' And he hit it out." The other run against him was a solo home run by Jason Heyward. Both the left-hander and Rangers manager Bruce Bochy looked beyond the results and understood early spring outings are for getting work in and staying healthy. Bochy noted Heaney threw his off-speed pitches well.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Deal with Texas announced

    Heaney's signing of a two-year, $25 million contract with the Rangers was formally announced by the team Friday.

    Heaney reportedly turned down more money from other clubs in order to sign with Texas, which is close to his native Oklahoma. With the help of a new slider, the left-hander tallied a 3.10 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 110:19 K:BB ratio over 72.2 innings for the Dodgers in 2022. Heaney will remain a major health risk in 2023 but should be useful in fantasy leagues when on the mound.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Inks deal with Rangers

    Heaney signed a two-year, $25 million deal with the Rangers on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Heaney missed significant time but posted a 3.10 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with the Dodgers in 2022 -- career bests in both categories. If Heaney can maintain anything close to the 13.6 K/9 he recorded last season, there is still upside with the 31-year-old lefty.

  • Dodgers' Andrew Heaney: Suffers relief loss

    Heaney (4-4) took the loss during Tuesday's 5-2 defeat at the hands of the Rockies, allowing three runs on five hits while striking out seven in four relief innings.

    Heaney entered a tie game in the sixth inning and went the distance, surrendering a Randal Grichuk two-run home run in the seventh and another run on two hits in the ninth in the process. The poor showing continued a recent feast-or-famine trend for the 31-year-old, as he's now held the opposition to no more than one run or permitted at least three runs three times apiece in his last six appearances. Heaney concludes an injury-plagued 2022 with a 3.10 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with 110 strikeouts in 72.2 innings across 14 starts and 16 games.

  • Dodgers' Andrew Heaney: Set to pitch in relief Tuesday

    Heaney is slated to pitch behind starter Julio Urias during Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Matthew Moreno of reports.

    Heaney served as a primary pitcher Thursday against the Padres and earned the win by allowing three hits and a walk while striking out six over four scoreless innings. Manager Dave Roberts hopes that Urias and Heaney will be able to handle the entire game Tuesday, so each pitcher should have a sizable workload as long as they can limit the Rockies' offensive production.

  • Dodgers' Andrew Heaney: Finds success as primary pitcher

    Heaney (4-3) earned the win Thursday over the Padres. He allowed three hits and a walk while striking out six over four scoreless innings.

    Heaney entered the game with the Dodgers trailing, but they pulled ahead in the sixth inning before he was removed. The southpaw threw 44 of 69 pitches for strikes as he prepares for what's likely to be a bullpen role in the playoffs. The 31-year-old trimmed his ERA to 2.88 with a 1.08 WHIP and 103:19 K:BB through 68.2 innings across 15 appearances this year. The Dodgers announced their rotation plans for a six-game series against the Rockies to close out the year, and Heaney was not expected to start any of them, so he's likely to operate as a long reliever going forward, though he could step in for a spot start if plans change.

  • Dodgers' Andrew Heaney: Set to follow opener

    Manager Dave Roberts said Heaney is likely to follow a yet-to-be named opener Thursday against the Padres, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Heaney has started in all 14 of his appearances for the Dodgers this season, but he'll follow an opener Thursday in preparation for his role for the playoffs. The left-hander has a 3.06 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 97:18 K:BB across 64.2 innings this season, though it appears he's behind Clayton Kershaw, Julio Urias, Tyler Anderson and Tony Gonsolin (forearm) in the pecking order for the postseason rotation.
