The Call-Up

Andrew Heaney

by Mark Anderson and Bret Sayre


The Situation: Entering the season, the Marlins were counting on Jose Fernandez to front their rotation. Since he was lost to Tommy John surgery, the team has been trying to piece together a workable rotation, as they sit just 0.5 games out of the second National League Wild Card slot. As they shove left-hander Randy Wolf and right-hander Kevin Slowey to the side, BP’s top-ranked Marlins prospect, Andrew Heaney, gets the call. He will make his MLB debut on Thursday against the division-rival Mets.

Background: The club’s top pick (ninth overall) in 2012, Heaney has blown through the minor leagues, reaching Double- and Triple-A in just his second full season as a professional. Heaney breezed through 12 starts (13 appearances) in the Florida State League in 2013, posting a 0.88 ERA before notching a 2.94 ERA in six Double-A starts to close out the year. He came back this year to lower his Double-A ERA with a 2.35 mark, striking out nearly a batter per inning in 53 2/3 innings of work. The Marlins then promoted him to Triple-A, where he posted a 2.74 ERA and 3-0 record in four starts.
