2016

2015

Heston tossed a career-high 173 innings at Triple-A Fresno in 2014, posting a 3.38 ERA in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League and eventually earning a start in San Francisco in September when the Giants needed someone to chew up innings during the final week of the season. Throughout his development, Heston has been successful by limiting the damage of free passes, but there are questions as to how many bats he'll miss if he remains a starter in the big leagues. With a fastball that hovers around 90 mph as a starter, Heston utilizes three others pitches to retire opposing hitters, and he might prove more valuable as a reliever if he can't consistently induce weak contact against top-level bats. If he can continue to get lefties out, and induce a large share of his outs on the ground, Heston could be a No. 5 starter. The Giants have not said that he'll end up a reliever, but he'll likely begin 2015 back at Triple-A with the team's new affiliate in Sacramento.
