Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery in Los Angeles Friday, July 1, and he will likely be sidelined until the 2018 season.

Angels | Andrew Heaney to undergo Tommy John surgery

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 19:13:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Friday, July 1, due to a lack of progress in the healing of his ulnar collateral ligament, in addition to discomfort experienced during a recent throwing session. The procedure will be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney received a stem-cell injection several months ago in an attempt to avoid reconstructive elbow surgery but it was unsuccessful. The 25-year-old southpaw will miss the remainder of the 2016 season and a good chunk of 2017 as well. Owners in redraft leagues can cut ties with Heaney but he should remain stashed in dynasty leagues.

Angels | No improvement for Andrew Heaney

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 19:30:38 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney (elbow) was re-evaluated Monday, June 27, and he did not show any improvement after a stem call injection in late April. He will be re-examined in two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney has a bright future, but it appears he will need a surgery which could keep sidelined for a lengthy amount of time. Fantasy owners in re-draft leagues should cut bait at this point.

Angels | Andrew Heaney headed for MRI

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 17:31:37 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney (elbow) will have an MRI later this month to determine if the torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow is healing, manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney could be headed for Tommy John surgery, but if you have been hanging on to him, it doesn't hurt to wait until the MRI results before making a move.

Angels | Andrew Heaney has UCL damage

Fri, 06 May 2016 07:47:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney (elbow) has damage to his ulnar collateral ligament, and he's rehabbing in hopes of avoiding Tommy John surgery, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney was believed to have an injury to his flexor muscle, but this makes sense as to why his rehab has been rocky. He's unable to throw for another month, so the best-case scenario for him is returning after the All-Star break. With Garrett Richards (elbow) going down, the Halos have two open rotation spots. Matt Shoemaker and Tyler Skaggs are the most likely candidates to fill the holes that could linger the rest of the season. Skaggs has been a top prospect for a number of years but has yet to put it together. Shoemaker was 16-4 with a 3.04 ERA in 2014 but has fallen off a cliff since then. Both are worth adding in AL-only formats. Nate Smith is a dark horse to grab in deep formats. If you have enough DL room, keep Heaney stashed in AL-only formats for now.

Angels | Andrew Heaney has injection

Wed, 04 May 2016 11:22:23 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney (forearm) recently received a platelet-rich plasma injection that will keep him from playing catch at least until the middle of June.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney is facing a lost season, and there's still a chance he could need Tommy John surgery if rest and rehab doesn't work. At this point, you can drop him in most fantasy leagues in favor of healthy and productive starting arms. Heaney's injury, as well as a lack of depth for the rotation in Anaheim, could allow Nick Tropeano to stick all season long.

Angels | Andrew Heaney seeking more tests

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 15:49:57 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney (elbow) is being sent for more medical opinions since the healing of his arm has slowed. Heaney was originally diagnosed with a strained flexor muscle.

Fantasy Tip: This is bad news for the Angels and Heaney, and he'll be out well beyond his 15-day DL stint now. There remains the chance that Heaney will need Tommy John surgery, which would put him out for at least a year. Only keep Heaney stashed in AL-only leagues for now and keep tabs on his status. Nick Tropeano (1-0, 1.69 ERA, 1.43 WHIP) would be the biggest beneficiary if Heaney is out for an extended timeline. Tropeano has looked good so far in the rotation and is worth a flier in deep mixed leagues. He can be a successful value play in the right matchups in daily formats.

Angels | Andrew Heaney has favorable MRI

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:53:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney (elbow) had an MRI exam show no further damage to his arm Monday, April 25, and he's just dealing with a strained flexor muscle. However, Heaney hasn't resumed throwing yet.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney is one of the Angels' better starting pitchers when healthy. It looks like he has a good chance of beating Tommy John surgery, but he still has a ways to go before he's considered a good bet to return to the starting rotation. For now, only keep him stashed in AL-only setups and continue to check for updates on his progress.

Angels | Andrew Heaney not making progress

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 15:08:12 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney (elbow) has reached a plateau in his recovery, and he's still feeling something in his arm when he throws harder, according to manager Mike Scioscia.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't sound good. If he doesn't make any more progress, Heaney could become a candidate for Tommy John surgery. Keep him stashed for now in AL-only leagues. Nick Tropeano has allowed just one earned run in 10 2/3 innings over two starts in Heaney's place and deserves consideration in deep mixed affairs, at least as a matchup play.
