The season hasn’t yet started, and the injury bug continues into 2019 for the Los Angeles Angels. Potential Opening Day starter Andrew Heaney may not have an opportunity to take the ball on March 28, reports Jeff Fletcher of the OC Register:
#Angels LHP Andrew Heaney has been shut down again because of elbow inflammation. He had an MRI that showed no structural damage, Ausmus said. Opening day is now questionable. He missed the first week and a half of last season with the same thing.— Jeff Fletcher (@JeffFletcherOCR) March 13, 2019
Heaney had previously skipped a Spring Training start and was pulled from his last one after getting just two outs.
In 2018, Heaney had the best year of his career, pitching 180 innings with a 3.99 FIP and a 1.20 WHIP, leading the league in shutouts. He has previously had injury issues, including Tommy John surgery causing him to miss most of 2016 and 2017.
How are we feeling this fine Wednesday afternoon?
