Morning Jam: Heaney “likely headed to Jamestown”
Well, we’ve heard it a lot. And I’ve read it a lot. So with the Miami Marlins first round pick Andrew Heaney (No. 9) finally signing, I decided to do some research and see what the folks down in South Florida are talking about.
“Likely headed to Jamestown”
• In the Miami Herald, Clark Spencer wrapped up the late push for Heaney. He says he’s likely to be assigned to Jamestown.
• Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post says the Marlins see him “as a top-of-the-rotation starter.” Capozzi says he’ll report to Jupiter before mentioning a certain city here.
• Over at the Sun-Sentinel, Juan C. Rodriguez has some quick notes about the signing. Basically the same as the previous two articles, but again “likely” and “Jamestown”.
• And where it was reported first, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com has a video and a lengthy article about the rookie lefthander.
Should be a while still for Heaney. After being evaluated, then Miami will decide where to send him. Again, it’s likely Jamestown, but not definitely Jamestown. Should be at least two weeks.
On the field
Jammers won their sixth in a row yesterday by a score of 6-5. It’s now 9 of 12. So after starting 3-9, they went 9-3. They host the Tri-City ValleyCats for three starting tonight. Staff ace Helpi Reyes (1-0, 2.84) is on the mound.
