Prospect Spotlight

Heller came to the Yankees in the deal that sent Andrew Miller to Cleveland in 2016. He briefly debuted in the Bronx in 2017 after spending most of the year with Triple-A Scranton. Heller missed all of last year recovering from a complex injury in his throwing elbow, undergoing both Tommy John surgery and a procedure to remove bone spurs. When healthy, the righty has shown a high-90s fastball and hard slider that could immediately contribute to the Yankees’ bullpen presuming he’s ready to pitch in 2019.
