Chris Heston

Is Chris Heston a one no-hitter wonder? With the acquisition of Matt Moore and dominance of Ty Blach in his short stint on the team this past year, Is there still room for Chris Heston? In 2015, Heston had his ups and downs but still put up respectable numbers 12-11 3.95 ERA.  This past season Heston only threw in four games for five total innings.

The reasoning is he injured his oblique which sidelined him for the whole year. He mostly rehabbed in extended spring training and in September he did finish off his rehab in single-A with the San Jose Giants. Depending how he rehabs in the off-season he can be legitimate candidate for the fifth starter spot. Why wouldn’t he be he threw a no-hitter as a rookie!
