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 DodgerBlue.com reports.
The left-hander 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.

Dodgers' James Outman: Finishes season with flourish
In his final 16 games with Triple-A Oklahoma City, Outman slashed .313/.405/.672 with six home runs, 12 RBI, 15 runs and a stolen base.
Outman's strong finish put the finishing touches on a breakthrough campaign during which he slashed .294/.392/.586 with 31 homers, 106 RBI, 101 runs and 13 stolen bases over 125 contests between Double-A and Triple-A. Among the highlights was a four-game stretch in late August during which the 25-year-old twice hit for the cycle. Of course, Outman's greatest achievement this season was getting his first major-league callup -- he impressed during his time with the big-league club, slashing .462/.563/.846 with a home run and three RBI over 16 plate appearances (albeit with a 43.8 percent strikeout rate).
