Description: The Diamondbacks are leaning towards giving Aaron Heilman the last rotation spot and moving Armando Galarraga to the bullpen. SOURCE: AZCENTRAL
Insight: This is a minor surprise to us because Heilman is usually a reliever and didn't look great in spring training. Both pitchers are worth an NL-Only spot if they are in the rotation but not if they are in the bullpen.
3/23/2011 6:02:00 AM
Description: Aaron Heilman allowed four runs over 5 1/3 innings yesterday.
Insight: Arizona hasn't selected their final two starters but it likely won't include Heilman. His last two performances haven't been good and they could use him in the bullpen.
3/2/2011 8:41:00 PM
Description: Aaron Heilman threw three scoreless innings today, giving him five scoreless innings this spring.
Insight: He isn't a favorite for a spot in the rotation but he is just more talented than some of Arizona's starters so the team would be wise to give him a chance if he continues this success in spring training.
2/18/2011 11:36:00 AM
Description: Though he wanted a chance to win a rotation spot for the Diamondbacks, it appears that Aaron Heilman will pitch out of the bullpen in 2011. SOURCE: Arizona Republic
Insight: Heilman puts too many runners on base to be of value in mixed leagues; that high WHIP will also likely prevent him from landing a rotation spot, as well.
1/19/2011 11:50:00 AM
Description: Free agent pitcher Aaron Heilman has reached agreement on a one-year, $2 million contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks. SOURCE:
Insight: Heilman has been a reliever since 2006 but is expected to compete for a spot in Arizona's rotation this year. His value is limited to NL-only leagues until he can re-establish himself as a SP.
11/30/2010 12:23:00 PM
Description: Drawing interest as a starting pitcher, Diamondbacks RP Aaron Heilman has declined arbitration. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal via Twitter
Insight: Heilman has not started in the bigs since 2005; don't expect him to land a long-term deal as a starter.
8/19/2010 6:25:00 AM
Description: Aaron Heilman blew a save last night by giving up four ninth inning runs. Before he came in, Sam Demel was charged with four eighth inning runs.
Insight: It's hard to say who will get the next save opportunity but neither pitcher should be active in mixed leagues. This is a bullpen to avoid in those formats.
8/7/2010 10:19:00 AM
Description: Heilman recorded his fifth save of the season on Friday against the Padres.
Insight: Heilman pitched a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout as he seems to have taken the role as Arizona's closer at the moment. (
8/7/2010 6:36:00 AM
Description: After protecting a four run lead last time out, Aaron Heilman held a one run lead to earn a save last night.
Insight: He is the only real saves option in Arizona right now. He should be owned by any owner in a tight saves race until something changes.
8/6/2010 7:08:00 AM
Description: Aaron Heilman threw a scoreless ninth inning to protect a four run lead last night.
Insight: It wasn't a save chance but it was close. Expect him to protect the next closer lead too.
8/3/2010 10:11:00 PM
Description: Aaron Heilman is the favorite for saves right now but manager Kirk Gibson didn't name him the full-time closer. SOURCE: STEVE GILBERT ON TWITTER
Insight: Owners in deep mixed should add him if he has been dropped to waivers but considering his skills and Arizona's, he might not get too many saves.
7/31/2010 9:58:00 AM
Description: Heilman recorded his fourth save of the season on Friday against the Mets.
Insight: Heilman allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth inning as he was the one out there in the save opportunity over Juan Gutierrez. (
7/30/2010 11:05:00 AM
Description: The Arizona Diamondbacks are unsure if they want to deal reliever Aaron Heilman. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter
Insight: He has been the best reliever for the D'backs this season, so it would make sense for them to keep him. His value is mostly in NL-only leagues.
3/9/2010 9:09:00 AM
Description: Heilman threw a scoreless inning in relief for the Diamondbacks on Monday against the Indians.
Insight: Heilman is now on his fourth team in the past year or so and is looking to solidify his spot in the Diamondbacks' bullpen. (
1/19/2010 8:33:00 AM
Description: Heilman agreed to a one-year, $2.15 million contract with Arizona on Monday.
Insight: Heilman had a 4.11 ERA in 70 appearances last season with the Cubs. (
Steady1/28/2009 5:45:00 PM
Description: The Cubs acquired Heilman from the Mariners for Garrett Olson and Ronnie Cedeno.
Insight: Heilman has said that he prefers to start and he'll have an opportunity to win the fifth spot in the Cubs rotation in a competition with Sean Marshall. Heilman had three solid years in the bullpen of the Mets before struggling last season. (
Steady1/22/2009 5:10:00 PM
Description: Heilman will get a shot at being the Mariners' closer, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
Insight: Heilman had a rough year out of the Mets pen in 2008 after two solid years of middle relief. He still struck out 80 batter sin 76 innings and may be more interested in getting the big dollars of a closer in the future. (
