Andrew Heaney had himself one heck of a Wednesday.
Heaney was the Miami Marlins top prospect when he woke up on Wednesday morning.
When he sat down for dinner that same day, he’d been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a seven-player deal.
Before he went to bed that night, the Dodgers had already traded him to the Angels for second baseman Howie Kendrick.
That’s a pretty intense day for a big-time pitching prospect who figured to be a sizable piece of the Marlins long-term plans prior to Wednesday.
Heaney appears to have taken it all in stride and even managed to find some humor in the situation:
I guess he doesn’t have to clean out a locker or anything, which is nice.
The upshot is that he has a great chance of making the Angels opening day rotation and figures to be a presence in the club’s rotation for years to come.
…but he should probably still rent for a bit before he buys.
You know, just in case.
