Latest Update Justin Bour, INF Kike Hernandez, RHP Anthony DeSclafani and LHP Andrew Heaney recalled Tue Sep, 02, 12:28 PM
Owns a good fastball and very good slider, which can be his go-to pitch when he's on. Doesn't walk a lot of batters, but is also capable of piling up good strikeout totals.
Flaws: : At 6-3, 180 pounds, he will need to fill out his frame in order to gain more stamina for the big-league level. Also, he needs a little more work with his changeup.
Every one here save for Hernandez has spent some time up with the big club and should get some added opportunities once the Marlins are mathematically eliminated from contention. Keep an eye on Heaney as he could potentially be an impact arm for next year if he took direction well while being back in the minors.Analyst: Howard Bender
Heaney has been sent back down to Triple-A after allowing four-plus runs in each of his last three starts (14 R, 14.2 IP) after a stellar MLB debut where he allowed just one run on four hits over six innings against the Mets. His replacement has not yet been decided on for Wednesday's game in Arizona.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Heaney was destroyed by the Cardinals Saturday afternoon, giving up 5 earned runs in just 3 2/3 innings pitched. He victimized by home runs from Jhonny Peralta and Allen Craig. He can be safely dropped in standard formats. Analyst: Spencer Silva
The 23-year old southpaw found much less success here in his second start of the year as the Phillies jumped all over him early and often. His command was off all night as he threw just 11 first-pitch strikes to the 22 batters he faced and when he fell behind in the count he was forced to lay it over the plate to which the Phillies took full advantage, plating three runs in the first inning. He needed 95 pitches (63 strikes) to get through the five frames and will need a much sharper game next time to defeat a much better hitting club in Oakland. Analyst: Howard Bender
