Los Angeles Angels Fantasy Spin
Andrew Heaney struck out eight batters over five innings in a no-decision against the Rangers in his season debut on Sunday. Heaney allowed only two hits, but both of them left the yard, courtesy of veteran sluggers Shin-Soo Choo and Hunter Pence in the fourth inning. He generated an impressive 15 swinging strikes and needed only 85 pitches to complete five frames. It was an extremely encouraging season debut for the 27-year-old southpaw, who missed the first two months of the season with elbow issues. He'll take on the struggling Mariners on the road in his next start on Friday and needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues moving forward.
Seattle Mariners Fantasy Spin
Tommy Milone allowed just two runs and struck out seven over 5 2/3 innings against the Rangers on Monday to earn his first victory of the year. Milone allowed just four hits, and he walked one in the outing while throwing 53-of-80 pitches for strikes. The southpaw pitched well in in his first start of the year with two runs over five frames -- also against the Rangers -- and he was just as effective against the Texas lineup on Monday. His track-record suggests he can’t keep this up, and he’s still not a recommended addition to a fantasy roster. Milone is back on the bump against the Angels on Saturday.
