Dodgers News: Andrew Heaney Exits Saturday’s Game With Apparent Arm Injury

The Dodgers are taking on the Kansas City Royals for a set of three games this weekend. Tony Gonsolin took care of business last night earning his 14th win of the season. And tonight, Dodgers skipper Dave Roberts had southpaw Andrew Heaney out on the mound but that didn’t last long.

Heaney was taken out of the game after a 106.5 MPH liner was smacked off his left arm. The 31-year-old stayed in the game after taking that shot and finished with 60 pitches in 3 innings.

This was Heaney’s 7th start of the season and he’s now pitched 31 innings, and owns a 12.19 K/9.

The HeanDog has dealt with injury issues throughout his first year in LA and including Saturday night, has logged just seven starts this season. When healthy, he’s been lights out. Heaney owns a 1.16 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP in 2022. 

Heaney’s 2022, aside from the injury bug, has been completely different from his miserable 2021 season. Across 30 games for the Angels and Yankees, the former first round pick produced a 5.83 ERA and had one of the highest home runs allowed per nine innings (2.0) in the the entire league.

LA rolled the dice on Heaney with a one-year contract, and when he’s able to take the mound, it’s been great. But as they say, the best ability is your availability.

Let’s hope this arm contusion is nothing to worry about and will pitch again when it’s his turn in the rotation.
