The Dodgers helped Andrew Heaney revitalize his career last season, and have put him in a great position to cash in this offseason.
According to reports, Heaney has “more than 10 teams” interested in his services, and even has at least one offer on the table from the Blue Jays.

It’s no surprise that Heaney’s market is hot, as he had an extremely underrated year last season in LA. He struggled to stay healthy, but when he did, he was as dominant as anyone — especially in the first-half of the season.
Last year, he went 4-4 with a 3.10 ERA in 16 games (14 starts). However, through his first six starts, he sported a 0.64 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 28 innings.
The Dodgers are unlikely to bring Heaney back, as his struggles with the long-ball pushed him to the bullpen at the end of the season and in the postseason. However, it was still by far his best year in the big leagues, and he’ll be rewarded for it with a starter job and nice payday this offseason.
