The Miami Marlins first round pick from 2012 is having a strong showing in the Arizona Fall League. Heaney has made three starts so far and owns a 2.94 ERA, with four walks and 11 strikeouts in 10 2/3 innings. Opponents are hitting just .231 off of him.
Heaney is coming off of a strong campaign in 2013, posting a 0.88 ERA and a 2.60 FIP in 61 2/3 High-A innings. He also posted a 2.94 ERA and a 3.41 FIP in 33 2/3 Double-A innings.
If I were to guess right now, I’d envision Heaney making the Marlins rotation out of spring training. Currently, the team has Jose Fernandez, Nathan Eovaldi, and Henderson Alvarez as locks for the rotation. Heaney would be in competition with Jacob Turner and a few others for the final two spots in the rotation.

Marlins’ Moran gaining seasoning in AFL | Marlins News
The Marlins showed this season that they aren’t afraid to accelerate top young talent to the Major Leagues. Jose Fernandez made the Opening Day roster and never looked back. Several of Miami’s top hitting prospects, including Derek Dietrich, Jake Marisnick, Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich, also arrived at Marlins Park earlier than anticipated.
Marlins add new VP of player personnel | Sun-Sentinel
The Marlins plucked Oakland Athletics special assignment scout Craig Weissmann to be their vice president of player personnel.
Here at Marlin Maniac:
Our co-editor Chris is already undertaking the massive task of breaking down each Marlin’s 2013 season position by position. I’m glad somebody is doing it because if it was up to me it wouldn’t get done.
Now that we have finished grading the position players for Miami, we will turn our focus to the pitching staff. As disappointing as Marlins’ hitters were during the 2013 season, I could say just the opposite about the young stable of arms the Marlins sent out to the hill. Each day we have focused on handing out grades to two different players based on position, and we will continue that trend with the pitching staff. I will submit grades for two pitchers and you can decide whether or not you agree with those grades in the comments below. Remember, I am handing these out based on reasonable expectations for each player heading into the season. Today we will review Jose Fernandez and Tom Koehler.
MLB’s Miami Marlins team writer Joe Frisaro reports that Craig Wessmann has been named Vice President, Player Personnel for the Miami Marlins. Weismann comes from the Oakland Athletics where he has been a professional scout for 7 seasons.
The year 2003 was a big year for me. I graduated from high school, moved out of the house, got a job that I’ve been at for 10 years now, and started college where I would meet my wife. But on this day 10 years ago something else big happened… the Marlins beat the New York Yankees 2-0 to claim their 2nd World Series. It really was a good year.
