Heaney (6-7, 5.27 ERA) was acquired by the New York Yankees with cash from the Angels on Friday for two minor league pitchers. The 30-year-old lefty will face Baltimore as the Yankees begin a seven-game homestand.
The 23-year-old Gray (0-0, 6.75) made his major league debut for the Dodgers on July 20. He was traded by Los Angeles on Friday in a prospect-laden package to Washington for stars Max Scherzer and Trea Turner. Gray will start at Nationals Park against Philadelphia.
Kris Bryant tries to keep up his success after homering in his Giants debut — the latest big hit by a trio of former Cubs.
Bryant connected Sunday in a 5-3 win over Houston. Acquired Friday from Chicago for two minor leaguers, the former NL MVP was greeted by chants of “KB! KB! KB!” when he trotted onto the field for pregame warmups at San Francisco. He drew a standing ovation before his first at-bat, then homered his second time up.
The NL West-leading Giants next play at Arizona.
Anthony Rizzo and Javier Báez, Bryant’s teammates at Wrigley Field until getting traded recently, also got off to smashing starts for their new clubs.
Rizzo homered in each of his first two games for the Yankees, then hit a key single Sunday in a three-game series at Miami. Báez homered in his debut for the New York Mets on Saturday.
