He had passed his physical earlier in the day.
Heaney joins the Dodgers after pitching 7 seasons with the Anaheim Angels and the final two months of last season with the New York Yankees. In 121 career appearances (112 starts), the 30-year-old has posted a 4.72 ERA. His best season came back 2018 when he registered a 4.15 ERA over 30 starts with the Angels.
Dodgers insider Rowan Kavner had this to say about the pitcher.
Last year, Heaney ranked in baseball’s 91st percentile in chase rate and 90th percentile in fastball spin rate. Opponents had a .196 batting average with 40 strikeouts and four walks against his curveball. He had a 4.03 expected ERA.
As LA has done in the past, there is certainly something they see in the left-hander that can be refined to revitalize his career.
Heaney is expected to be introduced on Friday at Dodger Stadium.
