Heaney will also be making his second start of the 2015 season after being called up to replace the injured Jered Weaver in the Angels’ rotation. In his Angel debut last Wednesday, the Angels’ top prospect didn’t fail to impress as he held the first place Astros to just 1 run on 4 hits over 6 innings.
