Dodgers: Andrew Heaney Takes a Big Step Towards a Return Tomorrow

It’s no secret that the Dodgers’ starting staff is a little gassed right now. After a very long stretch of games, those starters have been leaned on heavily. So much so that the team needed to dig into their farm system to make things work out the past month. 

But the good news is that help is on the way. One arm that should be returning soon is Andrew Heaney. The Dodgers looked like they had turned him into a whole different player in his 2 starts before being injured. And now, he is taking the next steps to get back. 

Heaney struck out 10 batters in 10.1 innings of work and allowed just 4 total hits. If the Dodgers can get him back healthy, it will be huge for their rotation as well as their bullpen. Heaney returning likely means that guys like Mitch White and possibly Tyler Anderson return to longer relief roles.

  1. Why, oh why would the Dodgers return Tyler Anderson to long relief when he has proven he belongs in the starting rotation? That just doesn’t make any rationale sense!
