I swore I thought I had seen a write up on him somewhere, but cannot find one so I decided to create one. He was the Marlins first round pick in 2012 and did nothing but blow his projections out of the water. He was drafted as a potential #3 or #2 starter, but has shown he can have lights out stuff as evidenced by his .88 ERA over 61.2 innings in high a (66k, 17bb, 2 HRA) and a 2.94 ERA over 33.2 innings in double a (23k, 9bb, 2 hra). He is currently continuing his streak in the AFL and may be a part of the championship game. He just threw 5 no hit innings with 4k's and a bb bringing his total to a 1.82 era in 24.2 ip (23k, 7bb, 0hra, 15h). Given his dominance at every level he has pitched at every level thus far I don't think it would be surprising to see him called up early a la Jose Fernandez. He does have a lanky frame, but from what I have read he has good mechanics. A good prospect, in my opinion, to keep an eye on going into next year.

What doe she feature? Does he have a mid-low 90's fastball? Breaking pitches, curveball change? If his fastball averages below 92, I won't be as willing to buy in.

Forgot to mention he's a lefty that throws mid to low 90's. I don't believe any higher then 93, but have seen reports of 95 in a couple places. Throws a very accurate fastball and his breaking ball is probably seen as plus plus right now. The changeup looks like it has come a long way, but can only tell so much based on what I read, but until I do get that chance this is what I have to go off of. Challenges batters in the strike zone and is big on first pitch strikes.

So kind of a Patrick Corbin like pitcher I would predict.

With a higher ceiling IMO. Looks like he has better k/9 potential and his batting average against is lower as well. All of that without taking the Marlins stadium dimensions into consideration.

Here is a rotographs scouting report on him from Scott Strandberg. Fastball, slider change up repertoire in college, smooth and repeatable delivery. Well worth the read and it should only further cement his mid-season at the latest call up as long as he continues to prove himself worthy of a call up as he has thus far.

He completely dominated A ball, and he was solid in his limited time at AA. Miami's home ballpark is one of the biggest in the league, so if he comes up, I'd be interested in him. The Marlins seem to promote prospects at random, like Jose Fernandez last year, so I wouldn't be surprised to see him in Miami by midseason. If he impresses in the spring I wouldn't rule out him making the team either.

Marlins promoted a bunch of prospects before AAA last year so Heaney is definitely in play this year.

From RW

"Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald writes that the Marlins will give top prospect Andrew Heaney "a long look" in spring training."

Kind of confirms what we believe that the Marlins are not afraid to challenge this kid. I would love to see Heaney have more success at AA first, but I trust the Marlins with prospects as they've been developing guys for a while now (kind of have to to compete with their budget).

He works at 93 which is plenty good for a lefty.

Not immediately...

Brad Hand will start Wednesday against the Nationals in place of the injured Justin Turner

(shoulder). (Hand has thrown five scoreless innings out of the Marlins' bullpen so far this season. It's possible Turner could be out a while, so Hand could make more starts if he pitches well.)

Hoping this kid gets the call but I'm sure they will give hand the look at least for a few starts since he did well in ST

With only throwing 95.1 inning last season, he must be on a tight cap this season, no? Cannot see if doing too much this season (in the majors unless he get called up here soon) but I could be wrong.

He started the season late last year because of a lat injury I believe, which explains the lack of innings. He's a college arm so he is a bit more major league ready. Still, we are seeing this from more teams these days. I haven't read anything about him being capped, but you figure he would be
