Los Angeles Dodgers players we're glad to see gone: Andrew Heaney
Andrew Heaney, much like Joey Gallo, was a "good intentions acquisition" by the Dodgers heading into the 2022 campaign. After coming up through the Marlins' system as a highly-touted prospect, he broke into the big leagues and experienced his first real successes with the Los Angeles Angels over a seven-year stint.
When he's healthy, Heaney can be an electric presence on the mound. That's the only issue, though; he cannot stay healthy to save his life, a trend that fully continued while he was a part of the Dodgers organization.
All told, the southpaw made 16 appearances (14 starts) for the Dodgers, missing a huge chunk of the season while once again sitting on the injured list. Don't get me wrong, he did well on the mound, posting a 3.10 ERA, 134 ERA+ and 13.6 strikeouts per nine innings in 72.2 frames, but half of a season is not what the Dodgers envisioned when they signed him to an $8.5M contract.
Unsurprisingly, Heaney moved on from the Dodgers during the 2022-2023 offseason. He joined the Texas Rangers on a two-year deal and has made one start during the current season, allowing seven earned runs on seven hits in just 2.2 innings, good for a 23.63 ERA.
