Don’t think I or anyone else has ever written an Andrew Heaney sleeper post. Pretty sure I’m the first one ever to consider Andrew Heaney great value late in fantasy baseball drafts. *explodes in laughter* I’m just messin’. So, obviously, I write an Andrew Heaney sleeper post every year, and everyone likely does too. Just today, fantasy-baseball-were-geniuses-how-do-you-put-an-apostrophe-in-a-URL dot com posted their Andrew Heaney sleeper post, and tomorrow another three Andrew Heaney sleeper posts will drop, including one at fantasy-baseball-we-are-geniuses dot com and fantasy-baseball-wow-we’re-so-good-at-this dot com. It’s well-worn ground, which means we’re all crumby in the head with crackers or we might be onto something. Like a teamster having a cigarette, I’m leaning on the latter. Last year, Heaney went 4-6/4.91/1.29/118 in 95 1/3 IP because my man can never stay healthy. He was promoted in 2014 and has had exactly zero years of 200 IP. Therefore, ergo, vis-a-vie, he has to stay healthy for value, right? No, if that was all there was to say, I wouldn’t be here. Anyway, what can we expect from Andrew Heaney for 2020 fantasy baseball and what makes him a sleeper?

Andrew Heaney has a 14.1% swinging strike rate. *pulls on collar, getting hot* Froggy voice singing, “You Are So Beautiful.” That’s the 13th best in the major leagues when sorting by 90 IP. Here’s the 13:

Will you look at Kenta Maeda popping twerks on another list of sexy pitchers like in my Ryan Yarbrough sleeper. Kevin Gausman is interesting there too, but he had only 82 IP as a starter and another twenty as a reliever, where he had a 12 K/9, so it’s inflating him a little bit. Otherwise, Kenta Maeda is the only other one not a top 15 starter. Do I keep mentioning Kenta Maeda more in all my other sleepers than anyone? I think so. It’s pretty rudimentary, no relation to Rudy Gamble, if you’re getting guys to swing and miss, then good things will happen. I could’ve grabbed the top 30 swinging strike guys and there wouldn’t have been a dud in there. Andrew Heaney is also the 11th best when it comes to contact made inside the strike zone. To give you an idea of how sexy that is, Verlander is only 16th. Yes, Heaney has swing and miss stuff and solid command. To recap for emphasis, Andrew Heaney is getting people to swing and miss and has the 11th best ability to avoid contact in the strike zone. Did he do anything dramatically different in this partial season that he hadn’t done in any other partial season? Meh, not exceptionally. He threw his sinker, curve and change a tad faster. His sinker and curve spin rates were over 2500 RPMs, but even their pitchiness (totally a word!) is iffiness. His sinker and curve don’t really break. In fact (Grey’s got more!), his curve actually got ‘flatter’ this past year, and his sinker has rise, so even its classification is a little weird. Okay, time to get out of the weeds. *taking a machete to overgrown grass* It’s not important for us whether or not his sinker is a sinker or a fastball or if its spin is elite. What matters is how elite he is, and his swinging strike rate coupled with that zone contact has me all in again on Andrew Heaney. The only thing that is stopping him from being a top 15 starter is his health, and there’s no accounting for that, and it’s built into his price. For 2020, I’ll give Andrew Heaney projections 8-9/3.88/1.22/183 in 156 IP with a chance for much more.

2020 Draft Kit

    Count me out on Heaney everywhere. He can’t stay healthy and I can do better things with pick 180, like your other guy Odorizzi. Hell, Id take Canning over him. Musgrove, Lucchesi, DeScalfani, Chirinos, Yarborough, Matz too. Hell, Id much rather wait 100 picks and take a flyer on Cueto. At least he knew how to stay healthy prior to his big injury.

    I liked all your previous sleeper SPs but sorry I’m feeling no love for Heaney at his ADP. The injury risk seems a probability with only one of the past four years resulting in 20+ starts and two with less than 10. He was a nightmare last year until August 15, flashed brilliance for a couple starts before returning to form. Give me any of these other guys over this band-aid boy. Id only pick him up off the scrap heap for streaming purposes at this juncture. Way too unreliable to own and hold, IMO.

      Depends on the league and team build for me. Sometimes you need that upside gamble. Not many of the other guys you mention have Heaney’s upside.

      • Dave D says:
        (link)

        Nor the downside.

        • CMUTIMMAH says:
          (link)

          These are sleeper posts. You do with them what you like. If you are going to counterpoint, then say something besides “but he gets injured”. I think we all agree that if he wasn’t injury bitten for the last 5 years, he wouldn’t be drafted around pick 180. And all of those guys you mentioned aren’t injury prone and are being drafted around 180.

          Think about that. You are drafting guys who have played their way into the 180th pick instead of a guy who has had rotten injury luck and fell to 180. The downside of taking Heaney is missing out on ONE of the 10-12 guys (depending on draft position and teams in the league) between pick 180 and 192. If you don’t think his upside is worth his downside, then enjoy finishing 5th with high floor low ceiling in the later rounds.

          PS –
          Heaney is arbitration eligible after this year still. That means he has every incentive to get on track.
          Heaney’s abdominal injury was early enough in the season that he should be completely recovered.
          Also, his injury wasn’t the elbow, which was the thing that bothered him the most previously.

          If you are in a keeper league and you have a keeper advantage (say, you have 3 of the top 5 players kept), then play it safe all the way. If you are in redraft, guys like Heaney are how championships are won in the draft.

          • Dave D says:
            (link)

            Funny analysis. Thanks for trying to teach me on how championships are won. However, there are a lot of presumptions you make, and as far as I know, the only one on these message boards to win an online fantasy championship is Andrew E. He’s got 150k to back that up. Could you list your fantasy resume? I’d like to see it. Maybe Grey is hiring as well.

            • CMUTIMMAH says:
              (link)

              You understand I wasn’t throwing haymakers right? I was merely saying playing it safe wins you nothing on draft day. Maybe my tone was too harsh and you took offense, didn’t realize someone with such a strong opinion would get the feels when dealing with adversity.

              My fantasy resume is pretty good, but I typically don’t play roto, which Grey is typically writing for. Roto is too impersonal for me and usually has people losing interest when they are out of it (whether it’s for small or big money). Additionally, Heaney is even more attractive in roto, since it’s easier to “move on” from a player when your numbers are washed out over a full season, and if he gets hurt, he doesn’t negatively impact your numbers anyway…

              As for resume, I won’t list league by league, nobody cares. But last season, I did do one cash roto league on CBS and took 2nd, losing by 1 point. I stumbled out of the gates because CBS’s app was so much different from ESPN and Yahoo that I felt like a grandfather trying to use the interwebs for the first time. I came close, but first loser is still a loser. Reminded me why I don’t do roto, because the points gained by the winner got them in the last 2 weeks in steals because 4 guys just stopped paying attention around the all-star break.
              In competitive head to head leagues, I have a much better track record.
              In competitive points leagues with friends that are actually good managers, I’ve seen a lot of success.

              Being a fantasy writer would be fun, but I’d have to deal with people like us, which sounds terrible. And I’ve put enough effort into my career now that changing professions would be pretty silly. Maybe one days as a retirement plan? Who knows. But if I did it today, it would *almost* be as silly as passing on upside because of fear you’ll draft a bust with pick 180…

              Sorry if that was too harsh for you.

              • Dave D says:
                (link)

                No hurt feelings at all, I just was curious for you to elaborate where you’re coming from. I’m all for risk in the right spots. Just not Heaney. Why? As Grey mentioned, twice bitten, thrice shy. I’ll take flyers, just not on Heaney there. He’s only one guy though.

                • 183414 says:

                  183414 is my original user name for CDM, and since I did so well with it, I’ve kept for 15 years.

                  (link)

                  Fair point Dave, I think I still have a deep rooted hatred for Tulo because got him in keeper when he got hurt the first time… moved on and he came back and killed it, and then got him again 2 more times only for him to die both times. I got sucked in by the price tag! But, a price tag in the 40s or 50s is much more risky than 180.

                  I think I have a soft spot for Heaney because I remember the season he was close to being called up and picking him up twice when I had someone go on IR as a hold, only to have to drop him when he didn’t get called up. And then when he did get called up, it was a week after I dropped him for the second time. Amazing how vivid the memory is of the player you really wanted and didn’t get.

                  • Dave D says:
                    (link)

                    Yeah, it’s amazing how we can feel about some players based on how they perform for us. Scooter Gennett was another one that I gave up on too early. It can go both ways. Some players we don’t get the rythmn for.

            • 183414 says:
              (link)

              Dave, if you lived in San Diego, I’d take you to a game with me, this year. Funny thing, Heaney’s burned me at least twice.
              I actually did even better last year, but who’s counting . haha
              Gray likes Heaney’s dominance, and rightly so, if he can stay healthy. His projections were as a sleeper, but weren’t unworldly.
              I do agree with the list of starters you like better, though I’m not high on Matz.
              I picked up Canning last year, and he was mixed , at best, but still a pup, in the same mold as Heaney.
              Damn, that Angel pitching staff is awful.

              • Dave D says:
                (link)

                Yeah, the Angels staff is indeed a mess. The only Angels P that Ive drafted is Robles, and Canning is the only SP I’d feel good about drafting.

                Thanks for the Padres game offer. If I’m ever back in SD I’ll let you know. I lived in La Jolla for a few years (‘97-‘99) and went to tons of Padres games those years. It was such a privilege to watch Tony G. Even that late in his career he was still an incredible hitter. I even got tickets to the playoffs against the Braves, then the WS against the Yankees. I actually met Jim Fregosi and Dick Tidrow. They nearly crashed our tailgate at the Q parking lot before the game. Classic. I’ve never been to PetCo.

  2. I Miss Steve Sax says:
    (link)

    I have Heaney at $5 in a 16 team mixed dynasty league. I also have Mikolas at $2, Stroman at $6, Lance Lynn at $5, Kyle Gibson at $1, Brandon Woodruff at $10 as potential keepers. I have a trade in place for either Yarbrough ($1) or Lamet ($1). Who would you prefer? I’m leaning towards Yabrough, but not completely sold on the idea.

    Also, was just sent an offer of Dakota Hudson ($2), Josh Donaldson ($20) and Jonathan India ($0) for Jasson Dominguez ($0). I can keep the $0 players forever if I want, they just hold my last roster spot until activated.

    With my current pitching staff, I’m going to have to get a good starting pitcher during the draft to match with this group. Where would you rank Hudson as a keeper vs the rest of my current staff?

    Woodruff ($10)
    Stroman ($6)
    Lynn ($5)
    Heaney ($5)
    Mikolas ($2)
    Hudson ($2)
    Gibson ($1)
    Yabrough/Lamet ($1)

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      I’d want Lamet over Yarbrough.

      Fair deal. Depends how much value you think you’re getting on Donaldson…will he go for much more than $20 at auction?

      Lean towards holding Dominguez. Hudson ranks last among that list for me, tied with Gibson. Ownable in a 16 teamer, but nothing I’m excited about.

    Hi Grey, DT,

    Interested in your feedback on a general league question:

    Currently we use W+QS-L instead of straight W’s or QS but in the era of the “starter” is there any discussion within the fantasy experts community about a fairer way to handle this category?

    Thx

    Kenta Maeda favorite book is “The Man That Time Forgot”, if ‘time’ is code for the ‘Dodgers’ and ‘forgot’ is code for ‘forgot he can maybe be their best starting pitcher in their 9-man starting rotation they’ll throw out this year.’

    Ok, Buehler, anyone, Buehler is their best, but Maeda can be up there with him. Like Japanese Cameron Frye.

    such opportune timing. a deal for heaney was just knocking on my door and i wake up to a tailor made article to satisfy my concerns.

    so im in a 24 team dynasty league, 6×6 cats OBP and QS

    offer on the table:

    give: Mancini, Heaney, Jonathan Stiever
    receive: Voit, Wheeler, Michael Busch

    which side is stronger to you? should i accept this deal? positionally, its just a clean swap. i have a primary 1st baseman so voit would be a UTIL bat. the upgrade in pitching from heaney to wheeler is at the crux of this deal. the prospect swap was to balance out values. what say you grey?

    Sleeper FOMO posts like this make me crazy. I’ve rostered Heaney for two straight years and he’s been nipping at a breakout BUT I’VE NEVER FELT IT. (The nips, I mean).

    Now that I can keep him at 16th Rd value — 10 teams, keep 10, we count QS, nobody cares — it’s actually making me think that it’s better to keep him cheaply/less riskily vs. just keeping Bieber at 3rd Rd value. I also have Castillo and Corbin in the keeper mix at much nicer prices.

    All the fun statcast data is saying Bieber probably got lucky last year on batted balls; is there a planet where you’d keep a perpetual injury risk w/ skillz that tease like Heaney over a guy who just had an elite season despite a terrible fastball & tons of hard contact?

    Hey Grey!

    Chatting potential keeper trades in my 12 team keep forever with a guy who has a $3 DJ, $15 Alonso, $12 Paddack, and $7 Flaherty.

    I have a nice set of somewhat expensive (but below market) keepers, but looking to reduce salary a little for the draft.

    Would you target any of those 4 guys over my current keepers below? If so, any thoughts on a fair offer to throw out there? Thinking of dangling Scherzer or JDM, but not sure what to ask for. I’m not as up on my prep as usual due to having (our first) child a few months ago!

    $34 Scherzer
    $19 JDM
    $50 Yelich
    $29 Acuna
    $29 Yordan
    $8 Villar
    $16 Story

      Alonso over JDM, Flaherty over Villar (or Alonso over Villar) but how do you pull that off?

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:

        Thanks – good question. This owner has a lot of young guys and no “sure things”, so that may be my pitch for Alonso.

          (For offering JDM or Villar for Alonso)

    Going to see a sleeper post for Zach Gallen? Or does his 150ish ADP seem about right?

    • Grey

      I think Gallen was bumped from the rotation last I looked…

      • Cole says:

        You’re probably right. They sure gave up a lot for him not to give him a shot

          Yup

    I’ve been burned by heaney several times. Health as you mentioned is an issue. Upside for sure. Consistency no way. I added him last year and he was dope for about 3 straight starts at the end of the year after a dl stint. He then was garbage for a few and I cut him. I can see streaming him or taking a late round gamble on draft day, but the leash has to he really short. He most likely will suck you in and tease and then disappoint.

      Grey’s starting up with his rankings next week, pretty sure he’ll cover Nate Lowe then.

      Donkey’s right, he’ll be in my rankings next week… I don’t think much of him for this year, but I do like him

    In 10 team AL only Auction keeper league with a $26 dollar salary. I have four players for my last three spots. Aaron Civale ($1), Zach Plesac (.50), Yonny Chirinos ($1), and Kevin Kiermaier ($1). Stolen bases and pitching are usually overvalued, so I wanted to know your opinion. Thanks!

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:

      I’d let Kiermaier go

    Would you draft Heaney over Gallen in a 12 team roto league with equal salaries? Thanks

    Hey grey loved your write ups the past several years & getting into the swing of things for fantasy baseball! I know still early but want your opinion on who to keep we can keep max 3 , any 3 players. It’s year to year keeper so not locked in forever & can change my keeper nest year. H2h pts weekly.

    My options: Pete Alonso, Bryce Harper, Bo Bichette, Devers, Fernando Tatis jr, Goldschmidnt, Cavan Biggio, Noah Syndergaard, Strasberg, Mike Soroka, benintendi, Chavis.

    Thanks man!

      Betts… No problem

  27. Heaney a sleeper? Of course! Due to his price and history he will be a bargain but will I target him in the middle to late rounds? Possibly.
    Smitty on Kenley = Dave D on Heaney
    Anticipating your rankings big time Grey, they are the shizz

    Grey – great timed post. Ive had Heaney in my 12tm al only dynasty for the last 3 years, I drafted him in 2017 for $7. In my league, after 3 years you get a one time opportunity to extend a player up to an additional 3 years for $5 in salary each year. How long would you extend him for?

    2020 = $12
    2021 = $17
    2022 = $22

    Pitching is at a premium in the league because of the dynasty format. For example, Verlander is a FA this year and will go for around $40 or so.

    • Grey

      Just $12

    I’m starting to feel I might have made a misstake to drop Heaney in my 14-team 15-keepers (plus 45 minor leaguers) league.

    In the same league, I’m being offered Corey Kluber for Orelvis Martinez, seems like I should go for it right? After a few seasons of rebuilding I am contending for real this year in the league.
