Player Outlook
Andrew Heaney once ranked among the top pitching prospects in the sport, but he's typically been more of an off-and-on fantasy streaming consideration rather than a reliable rotation option. The 32-year-old left-hander can at least point to the big World Series ring on his finger as he enters his 11th major-league season, along with the $13 million he's owed after exercising his 2024 player option with the reigning-champion Rangers. He would appear to be locked into an Opening Day rotation spot with Max Scherzer (back), Jacob deGrom (elbow) and Tyler Mahle (elbow) all on the mend through the season's first couple of months, but Heaney took a step back with his walk rate last year and remains a volatile pitcher both in role and effectiveness. He'll have attractiveness in spurts when he's occupying a starting gig with favorable matchups.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Remains winless

    Heaney (0-5) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks over 3.2 innings Friday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Angels. Heaney yielded one unearned run through three innings before serving up a two-run shot to Zach Neto in the fourth. Heaney needed 83 pitches to record just 11 outs, tying his shortest outing of 2024. He's completed at least six innings in three of his nine starts and is still searching for his first win over the year. Heaney will carry a 4.43 ERA into his next matchup, which is lined up to come in Philadelphia next week.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Strikes out eight Saturday

    Heaney allowed two runs on eight hits and struck out eight without walking a batter over five-plus innings, taking a no-decision Saturday versus the Rockies. Heaney gave up a solo home run to Hunter Goodman in the third inning, and a second run was tacked onto his line when Jose Leclerc balked in a run in the sixth. This was another solid start for Heaney -- the eight strikeouts were a season high, and he issued zero walks for the fourth start in a row. He's at a 4.39 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 39:9 K:BB through 41 innings across eight starts this season, but he remains in search of his first win. Heaney is projected to make his next start at home in a favorable matchup with the Angels.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Settles for no-decision

    Heaney allowed two runs (one earned) on seven hits and no walks while striking out five batters over six innings in a no-decision against Oakland on Monday. Heaney notched his second straight quality start, but a strong outing by opposing starter Alex Wood kept him from picking up his first win of the season. Nonetheless, Heaney was impressive in the start, inducing 15 swinging strikes and finishing without issuing a free pass for his third consecutive appearance. The left-hander failed to get through five frames in each of his first three starts of the season but has now done so in each of his subsequent four outings, and he's gone at least six frames in three straight trips to the mound. Heaney's ERA still sits at a mediocre 4.50, but he has a solid 1.11 WHIP along with a 31:9 K:BB through 36 innings.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Strong outing in loss

    Heaney (0-4) took the loss against the Nationals on Wednesday, allowing one run on four hits while striking out four over seven innings. Heaney looked sharp over his seven innings of work, with the exception of the second inning when he allowed back-to-back hits with one out, which led to Washington's lone run coming home. The lefty would allow only two singles from that point on before being tagged with his fourth loss of the season. It's been a tough go for Heaney to begin the campaign as the Rangers have now lost all six games that he's started, despite him allowing three or fewer runs in four of those outings. On a positive note, he's posted an 11:0 K:BB over his last two starts, going six or more innings in each of those games.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Goes six innings in loss

    Heaney (0-3) took the loss Thursday, allowing four runs on five hits and no walks over six innings against the Mariners. He struck out seven. Although Heaney only gave up five hits, three went for extra bases, including two-run home runs by Luis Urias and Ty France. Heaney's now surrendered multiple long balls in back-to-back starts. While Thursday's start marked Heaney's first time pitching into the sixth, he's allowed multiple runs in all but one outing this year. He's tentatively scheduled for a matchup with the Nationals next week.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Escapes with no-decision

    Heaney allowed three earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out five batters over five innings during Friday's 8-3 loss to Atlanta. He did not factor into the decision. Two home runs off the bat of Travis d'Arnaud helped Atlanta build a 3-1 lead headed into the sixth inning, but the Rangers managed to tie the game before Heaney was relieved in the bottom of the frame, ensuring he wouldn't get hit with his third loss of the season. While the 32-year-old lefty may have avoided dropping to 0-3, he still owns a 6.35 ERA through his first four starts and could be at risk of losing his spot in the rotation once Cody Bradford (back) returns from the injured list.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Early exit Saturday

    Heaney escaped with a no-decision in Saturday's 9-2 loss to the Astros, allowing two runs on four hits and four walks over 3.2 innings. He struck out only one. The veteran southpaw also plunked Jose Altuve and uncorked a wild pitch, throwing only 42 of 79 pitches for strikes before his exit, and Houston had runners in scoring position in the first and third innings before finally breaking through for two runs in the fourth. Heaney's had a shaky start to his 2024 campaign, posting a 6.75 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 10:7 K:BB through 12 innings over three outings, and he has yet to last five frames in a start. With the Rangers close to adding Michael Lorenzen (neck) to the big-league roster and Cody Bradford pitching very well, there's no guarantee Heaney keeps his spot in the rotation.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Another short outing

    Heaney (0-2) yielded six runs on four hits and three walks over 3.2 innings Monday, striking out two and taking a loss against Houston. Heaney struggled immediately Monday, coughing up four runs in the first two frames. Despite only getting two punchouts, he managed to force 10 whiffs in the short start. He's thrown just 8.1 innings with a 7.56 ERA and a 9:3 K:BB through two appearances. Heaney is projected for a rematch in Houston this weekend.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Can't get through five in loss

    Heaney (0-1) took the loss Tuesday against the Rays after allowing three runs (one earned) on four hits while striking out seven in 4.2 innings. He did not issue a walk. Heaney started the game on fire, striking out four of the first seven batters he faced. He endured some tough luck in the third after the Rays scored on a base hit that likely would've been a ground out had the ball not deflected off Heaney's glove. The southpaw opened up the fifth with back-to-back punchouts but couldn't finish the frame after a Jared Walsh error kept the inning alive and led to four more runs, none of which were charged to Heaney. He's set to take the mound again next week versus the Astros and will hope for some better fortune against the Rangers' division rivals.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Mechanically off

    Heaney allowed four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out four over three innings in Wednesday's spring start against the Rockies. Heaney had an off first inning, giving up three runs on three hits and a walk but also struck out three. The left-hander didn't get settled in until a 1-2-3 third frame. He told Shawn McFarland of the Dallas Morning News that he was mechanically off and acknowledged being a "slow starter" early in seasons. The outing was his second Cactus League start, but he's also thrown three innings during an intrasquad game.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Fans five in spring debut

    Heaney allowed one hit and one walk while striking out five over two scoreless innings in Sunday's spring start against the Giants. Heaney's Cactus League debut got off to a rocky start, as the left-hander walked the first batter on four pitches and then hit a batter. He settled in after that, striking out two before inducing a groundout to avoid any damage. Heaney is expected to slot in third in the Rangers' rotation.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Exercises player option

    Heaney exercised his $13 million player option for 2024 on Saturday. Heaney was 2.2 innings away from reaching an incentive that would've increased his option to $20 million, but the 32-year-old southpaw will stick with the World Series champs nonetheless. Heaney posted a 4.15 ERA and 1.38 WHIP during his first year in Texas and figures to remain in the back end of the Rangers' rotation next season.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Gets nod for Game 4 of World Series

    Heaney will start Game 4 of the World Series against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Heaney should be relatively fresh heading into Tuesday's matchup after last taking the mound in Game 2 on Saturday. He recorded two outs and surrendered one hit on six pitches. However, his last postseason start resulted in a disaster, as he gave up three runs on four hits and one walk in 0.2 innings during Game 4 of the ALCS versus Houston.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Starting Game 4 of ALCS

    Heaney will start Game 4 of the ALCS on Thursday against the Astros, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports. Heaney turned in 3.2 innings of one-run ball during his first postseason appearance against Baltimore, and he's now set up to face an Astros lineup that has been relatively quiet through the first three games of the series. Heaney faced the Astros four times during the regular season, giving up six runs across 19.2 innings while striking out 16 batters and walking 11.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Will start Game 1 of ALDS

    Heaney will start for the Rangers in Game 1 of the ALDS on Saturday at Baltimore. The right-handed Dane Dunning seemed like the best bet to start Game 1 prior to Friday's announcement, but he could be viewed as a piggyback option after the left-handed Heaney navigates the tough left-handed and switch hitters that tend to occupy the top of the Orioles' batting order. Heaney finished his regular season on a high note last weekend at Seattle, scattering five hits and one walk over 4.1 scoreless innings in an 85-pitch start. His previous six appearances were in relief.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Sharp in spot start

    Heaney didn't factor into the decision Saturday as the Rangers won 6-1 over the Mariners, allowing five hits and a walk over 4.1 scoreless innings. He struck out two. While the southpaw didn't record the win, he was a key part of Texas' playoff-clinching victory. Heaney tossed 85 pitches (51 strikes) in his first start since Sept. 4, and he extended his streak of appearances without giving up an earned run to five. The Rangers still need a win Sunday, or an Astros loss, to lock up the AL West crown and a first-round bye in the playoffs, but if they wind up with a wild-card spot, Heaney could play a big role in that series too with Jon Gray (forearm) and Max Scherzer (shoulder) both currently on the IL. On the season, Heaney has a 4.15 ERA and 151:60 K:BB through 147.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Gets starting nod Saturday

    Heaney is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Mariners in Seattle, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. The veteran southpaw has made his last six appearances in relief, with the most recent outing coming in the series opener Thursday, when he tossed a 17-pitch scoreless inning. Given that he hasn't covered more than five innings in a game since late August, Heaney could end up serving as more of an opener or piggyback starter rather than a traditional starter Saturday. The Rangers will have Martin Perez (five days' rest) and Cody Bradford (three days' rest) available as potential bulk-relief options to work behind Heaney.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Works in relief Monday

    Heaney pitched 1.1 scoreless innings in relief during Monday's 5-1 win over the Angels. Heaney threw 22 pitches as part of the bullpen that covered the final three innings after starter Jon Gray left with a wrist injury. With Cody Bradford set to open Tuesday's game, it looks like the Rangers may need length out of the bullpen, which Heaney has frequently provided in September.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Lit up in relief

    Heaney allowed six runs on six hits and one walk while striking out three over two relief innings in Friday's 12-3 loss to Cleveland. Heaney looked likely to rejoin the starting rotation this weekend with Max Scherzer (shoulder) on the shelf, but he ended up being summoned in long relief Friday after starter Jon Gray lasted just 3.2 innings. The veteran lefty made his second long-relief appearance in as many outings, both after short outings by Gray. Since he tossed 55 pitches Friday, Heaney is removed from consideration to start Sunday in what would have been Max Scherzer's turn in the rotation. The Rangers will need a fifth member of the rotation at least two more times beyond Sunday during the regular season, so Heaney could be used as a traditional starter over the coming two weeks.

  • Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Picks up win in relief

    Heaney moved to 10-6 on the season while working in relief in Sunday's 9-4 win over the Athletics, striking out six over 3.2 scoreless innings while allowing four hits and a walk. Starter Jon Gray was pulled during a difficult third inning, but Heaney was able to step up in his first relief appearance of the season. Prior to Sunday's outing, Heaney was already confirmed to not be starting during the upcoming four-game series against the Blue Jays, which starts Monday. It's unclear if the Rangers have permanently bumped him from the rotation or if he will be part of a six-man group going forward. Heaney has pitched to a 4.10 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 141:55 K:BB over 136 innings across 28 appearances this season. If he makes his next start on schedule, he would be lined up for a road outing in Cleveland.
