FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: ANDREW HEANEY LIKELY HEADED FOR TOMMY JOHN

Just minutes after it was learned Los Angeles Angels SP Garrett Richards was headed for season-ending Tommy John elbow surgery after it was found he had a torn UCL in his elbow, a similar scenario is unfolding with rotation mate Andrew Heaney.  Already on the DL with a flexor strain, it was also found that Heaney had damage in his UCL as well.  Heaney will get a platelet injection in the elbow to see if surgery can somehow be avoided but team insiders are already leaking that he will also be going under the knife. 

Analysis:  Oh my goodness what an awful day for the Angels.  Both Richards and Heaney become the latest classic Tommy John cases in terms of being 27 or younger and who throw very hard.  Anyone who owns Noah Syndegaard, Yordano Ventura, and other young hard-throwers like this could be on borrowed time.  Cut Heaney loose.
