BP Chats

2017-02-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)How early would you draft Andrew Heaney in a dynasty league ?
(Ernie from LA)
Is never an option, because I wouldn't draft him. (George Bissell)
2015-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Prediction for Angel's Heaney this season please. Is he about to live up to what was expected? Looked very sharp against the Yanks last night. Gets Colorado in Denver next.
(John from CT)
Andrew Heaney: I'm a big fan of Heaney in the longterm. Fastball command in the zone seems to be his one continuing issue in need of further refinement, but he's got a solid arsenal and appears to have taken to his TJ recovery from a velo and stuff perspective. As a ROS fantasy play he's more of a mixed league match-up play. I would not start him at Coors, for example. (Wilson Karaman)
2015-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)How good is Andrew Heaney? Is he experiencing typical young pitcher growing pains?
(John from CT)
The other day I had a scout text me the following. "Heaney has been overrated from the jump".

The command issues and the release point issues have been my concerns in the past. Still plenty of time to iron them out, but I tend to agree with the mindset that he may not be on the level that some have placed him. Still a good pitching prospect either way. (Tucker Blair)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)With injuries and performance in consideration, how do you rank these guys: Jameson Taillon, Taijuan Walker, Andrew Heaney.
(Basil from Texas)
Walker, Taillon, Heaney. I can't quit Walker. You're justified in being wary with him, though. (Ben Carsley)
2015-02-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Andrew Heaney add enough value to the Angels' rotation to make up for the difference between Howie Kendrick and whatever combination of Grant Green/Josh Rutledge/Taylor Featherston that ends up playing the keystone?
(Mark68 from Mile High)
I'd guess no this year, but this isn't a one year transaction (Harry Pavlidis)
2015-01-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give me your opinion of the following fantasy baseball trade. (Context: 20 teams, one team is competing while the other rebuilding). Cliff Lee for Jimmy Nelson, Andrew Heaney, and John Holdzkom. Is that an overpay for the amount of risk or fair return for Lee? Thanks.
(Mike from NY)
Lee's stock is pretty low, I'd probably take this deal if you're intent on trading him. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where would Andrew Heaney, Tom Windle and Zach Eflin have ranked if they were still in the org?
(Dustin Nosler from Stockton, Calif.)
Heaney would have slotted in behind Pederson and ahead of Holmes. Windle was a fringy back of the top ten guy that probably would have settled in the 11-15 range. Eflin as high as right after Holmes and low as after Anderson. So your top ten would have been:

1. Seager
2. Urias
3. Pederson
4. Heaney
5. Holmes
6. Eflin
7. Lee
8. Anderson
9. De Leon
10. Sweeney (NL West Top 10s With Nick Faleris)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)There was a lot of positive buzz about Andrew Heaney going into 2014. Yet his debut with the Marlins was rather disappointing. Should we revise our expectations of this young southpaw? How much will Heaney contribute at the major league level in 2015?
(Cream from Madison, WI)
Now with the Angels, I would anticipate Heaney getting plenty of run in 2015. He should get a turn every fifth day and has a chance to pile up 25-30 starts if he pitches reasonably well. I still like Heaney as a mid-rotation guy, but then again that's all (all, as if a #3 is something to scoff at) I ever really saw him as. I didn't really see anything last summer that shifted my expectations in any substantive direction. (Mark Anderson)
2014-10-09 15:00:00 (link to chat)Is Andrew Heaney a top 29 prospect? Should i be discouraged about his late season struggles?
(John from Chicago)
I wouldn't be worried. He's got Low No. 2 upside, and should settle in nicely in the middle of a rotation. His stuff is high-end for a left hander. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)dynasty, 12 team, h2h, 25 MLB, 20 MiLB. What should I be willing to pay for Joc Pederson? The current owner is in contention, while I am not. He inquires on Joey Votto although I am hesitant to move him with his stock so low. He's also offered Pederson in a package for Carlos Gonzalez. What type of impact do you see for Joc when he finally comes up? Is his 20/20 upside real? Should I make a play to get him with my current assets? Thanks!
(Greg from Cleveland)
I gave up Andrew Heaney for Joc in a prospect swap. I've heard that Joc is a hard worker with the tools to succeed. In my mind that gives him a good chance of hitting his upside.

All that said there's no way I'm giving Votto or CarGo for Joc (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)I picked up Andrew Heaney when Jose Fernandez went down, but Randy Wolf seems to be holding down that slot for the Marlins. Is Heaney still worth hanging onto?
(Matt from Silver Spring)
Depends on format, but in deep mixers or NL-onlys, I'd hang on for a little longer for sure (Paul Sporer)
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)What SP prospect currently in minors make biggest impact in 2nd half of the year?
(Shawn from Cubicle)
In the majors? It would have to be Andrew Heaney, who is both very good and very ready. I can't see him not being in the majors by the end of the month. (Jeff Moore)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)New guy, eh? Welcome! We know the Prof goes ga ga over the high ceiling youngsters who are sushi-grade raw. So what would you say your personal bias(es) are regarding prospects?
(Howie from NYC)
I think that's something that we all like. Ceiling talent is impact talent. You want guys who can impact the major leagues, and in a big way. The idea is to produce talent that you're not able to get on the open market.

In terms of my personal biases, I'm privy to lefties with pitchability. Someone like Andrew Heaney, for instance, because he's got an excellent shot of getting outs at the big league level, and for a long time. I also find myself attracted to guys like Rob Kaminsky, who have a legit plus, plus pitch, and feel for the mound. Even though he isn't a big guy, last I checked, you don't get extra points for being tall.

In terms of hitters, I like hit/power guys more than speed. Speed often overrates a prospect, and even though the adage 'you can't teach speed' is certainly true, it's easier to find on the open market than someone who can legitimately hit the baseball. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Where in the world is Andrew Heaney? And are the Buccos going to wait until they're 10 games back to call up Polanco?
(phin82 from MKE)
He's in Double-A, awaiting his chance to shine. And yes, the Pirates are likely to be double-digit games out before Polanco gets there. And at this point, they might as well wait. (Bret Sayre)
2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jeff, Thanks for the chat. Two questions. First, who's getting called up next? Second, who are we not talking about that we should be?
(Number27 from Milwaukee, WI)
I was as surprised as anybody that George Springer got called up when he did, though I'd guess it means that they're closer to a contract extension than either side is letting on. I just don't see the Astros giving up the service time like that for the sake of about one win between now and June in what will be another losing season. I'm thrilled he's up, but it doesn't make much sense.

Because of that, I have no idea who's next. Some of the most obvious candidates Javy Baez, Byron Buxton, Taijuan Walker, and Addison Russell for example, have battled injuries. There are some more obvious candidates like Marcus Stroman, Andrew Heaney, Gregory Polanco and others, but I'll bet most teams wait until the super-two deadline has safely passed.

Then again, who saw a Luis Sardinas promotion happening over the weekend? So who knows. (Jeff Moore)
2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your prediction on a Andrew Heaney earlier than expected call up? Do you see anything fishy going on (see what I did there)?
(dancini from Pgh)
Good transition into answer a Heaney question. You never know what the Marlins are going to do, but even with their aggressive promotions last year, they waited until after the super-two deadline (Jose Fernandez not included, but he's an exception to every rule). He's going to be in the majors this year, barring injury. I'll bet he's up before the all-star break. The way he's pitching in Double-A, I wouldn't be surprised to see him bumped to Triple-A within the month then make the jump, though the Marlins aren't afraid of skipping players right over Triple-A. With pitchers in the Pacific Coast League, that wouldn't be the worst idea either.

And for the record, terrible puns are a great way to get your question chosen. (Jeff Moore)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you have more love for Eddie Butler or Andrew Heaney, and what does the future hold for Tyler Skaggs? Separately, can you rank the three in order for me, in terms of impact?
(KJ from PA)
I've come around on Heaney. I wasn't enamored with him coming out of college, but he has really impressed me as a pro. The fastball velocity has been more consistent toward his upper range, and I think he's made some excellent strides in terms of sequencing and his overall approach on the mound. I'm buying Heaney as a really good MLB starter. I like Butler as well, but given their proximity in terms of overall ceiling, give me the lefty.

As for Skaggs, I wish I knew what the future held there; I'd be a wealthy man if I could predict things like that. I'm still buying the raw talent, but even if things come together, I think he ends up more of a 3/4 starter than anything else. (Mark Anderson)
2014-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Andrew Heaney lands #2 slot for Miami before the all Star break?
(Dragonbreath from Gurnee, IL.)
I would be very surprised by that. I'd put my chips on Eovaldi or even Turner locking that down before Heaney. (Harry Pavlidis)
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you buying Andrew Heaney's hype?
(Michael from GA)
Yep, sure am. And with it being the Marlins, he should be up by mid-summer. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Where do Tyler Glasnow and Andrew Heaney fall in your projections for Starting Pitchers? Potential 1/2s? How far out?
(Chris from Wilmington, North Carolina)
No. 3 types with No. 2 seasons in their primes. They're both right around 40-50 on my top-100. (Ben Carsley)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Keeper league draft where I need OF/P since I already have 2 MiLB top 10 infielders. Guys available in the range I'll draft: Marcus Stroman, Andrew Heaney, Alex Meyer, Clint Frazier, Joc Pedersen. Anyone jump out at you?
(RWarriors13 from Illinois)
My man-crush on Marcus Stroman has been pretty well documented. I'm driving the Stroman-as-a-Starter bus. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Mike, If you were looking to add to your rotation and hold the rights to some young players who would you count on from this short list. Tyler Thornburg, Eric Johnson (whats the upside on Eric) Eddie Butler, Andrew Heaney?
(Jim from Tampa)
Hi Jim:

I don't know if you can really count on prospect pitchers, so that makes this a tough question to answer. I like Heaney better than Butler just because of the park difference (though I think Butler can play with that sinker). Of the four, I like Thornburg best. Johnson's upside for me is as a mid-tier rotation guy, although I could also see him not quite getting there. (Mike Gianella)
2014-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jeff - A lot of pitching prospects have been throw around in this chat. Curious where Kyle Zimmer ranks; thinking in terms of tiers, who is his peer set - the guys you would cluster around him? What is his ceiling like down the road?
(aaronayoung from Washington, DC)
He's in the Jameson Taillon, Andrew Heaney, Aaron Sanchez, Alex Meyer class. It's a good spot to be in. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Andrew Heaney had a nice season...can he be a legit #2 behind Fernandez as soon as this summer?
(Tuco from STL)
He's more of a #3 caliber starter, but he should fit nicely behind Fernandez. (Mark Anderson)
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Andrew Heaney? Good season and dominant AFL performance. What are your expectations for him? Thanks.
(Jim H from Sphinx Park, CO)
Heaney has exceeded the expectations I had for him entering the draft in 2012. I thought he was getting a little oversold coming out of college, but he's shown more consistent velocity and his entire arsenal is more crisp than I had seen in college. I think he's a solid mid-rotation starter in the making, rather than the back-end type I originally had him pegged for. (Mark Anderson)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Andrew Heaney and what he can become ?
(William from Pensacola, FL)
The stuff has really ticked up this year, and he looks more than legit as the no. 9 overall pick in last year's draft as of right now. He's flown a bit under the radar this year but it's absolutely a guy to be excited about. (Jason Cole)
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of ceiling do you think Andrew Heaney has?
(Jim from Portland)
Number three is possible. Love the profile. (Jason Parks)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Parks, who are some of your favourite non-top 101 potential risers? (Guys who weren't on the 101 but very well could be, and maybe highly rated, by midseason)
(froston from Peterborough, ON)
Miguel Almonte, Alberto Tirado, Matt Wisler, Andrew Heaney, Rafael DePaula, Joey Gallo, Owens, Snell, Seager (Jason Parks)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)Andrew Heaney lacking the upside for you or are you not so sure he is a sure thing to even reach that back of the rotation level that many see him very likely reaching.
(hknova from Hong Kong)
He was in the running for the list. I like him. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2013-01-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mr.Levine,can you put thes guys in order??Jose Fernandez...Salvador Perez...Albert Almora..Jorge Solar...Kyle Zimmer...Noah Syndergaaud...Allen Webster...Alen Hanson...Gregory Palanco..Aaron Sanchez...Andrew Heaney...Kevin Gausman..Addison Russell....Kyle Crick...Sean Manaea...Clint Frazier...Ryne Stanek... Thanks John
(John from Boston)
I sort of feel like this is a riddle to see if I can figure out what this list even is. What is this list? I'll go with Salvador (Sal(vy)) Perez and then the rest just for the present. (Zachary Levine)
2013-01-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Dan,can you put these guys in order.....Jose Fernandez,Albert Almora,Solar,Zimmer,Syndergaard,Hedges,Andrew Heaney,Salvador Perez,Allen Webster,Aaron Sanchez and Dan Straily....thanks
(John from Boston)
Hey, John.

Sheesh, that's a lot of names. From a fantasy standpoint, and based on what I've read, I'd probably want to own Fernandez and Sanchez. I'm probably not qualified to put the others in order, so I'd suggest asking a member of our prospect team. (Daniel Rathman)
