Andrew Heaney confirmed as Angels' Opening Day starter

Los Angeles Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney is the club's Opening Day starter, manager Joe Maddon confirmed.

What It Means:

Heaney will get things going for the Angels against an unnamed opponent on either July 23 or 24. It will be the first career Opening Day start for the 29-year-old left-hander. He struggled to a 4.91 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 118 strikeouts and 30 walks over 95 1/3 innings while battling multiple injuries last season. Despite the ailments, Heaney did set a career-high with a 28.8 strikeout percentage. The delayed start to the season should only help Heaney return to form in 2020.

numberFire's models expect Heaney to twirl a 4.05 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 63 strikeouts and 18 walks over 55 2/3 innings this season.
