Cubs' Codi Heuer: Avoids arbitration
Heuer (elbow) and the Cubs agreed on a one-year, $785,000 contract Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
The right-hander missed the entirety of the 2022 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery in early March and he will look to make his return to the mound in 2023. Heuer last pitched in 2021, producing a 4.28 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 56 strikeouts over 67.1 innings in 65 appearances between the White Sox and Cubs.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Codi Heuer: Shuttled to 60-day IL
The Cubs placed Heuer (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
In a corresponding move, the Cubs announced the signing of veteran reliever David Robertson, who will take Heuer's spot in the bullpen and on the 40-man roster. Heuer will miss the entire 2022 season and, likely, a large portion of the 2023 campaign after he underwent Tommy John surgery earlier this month.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Codi Heuer: Undergoes arm surgery
Heuer announced Tuesday via his personal Instagram account that he underwent an unspecified arm surgery this week.
Until it becomes clear exactly what procedure Heuer underwent, it's difficult to say when he'll be back. If he underwent Tommy John surgery, he'll definitely miss all of the upcoming season as well as a substantial portion of 2023, though a lesser procedure could still give him a chance to return this year. Heuer had looked like one of the top alternatives to presumed closer Rowan Wick, but Wick's job now appears to be comparatively safe. Brad Wieck and Manuel Rodriguez look like Wick's main competition for now.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Codi Heuer: Tommy John surgery confirmed
Heuer's unspecified arm procedure that he underwent Monday was in fact Tommy John surgery, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Heuer announced the surgery on his personal Instagram page but didn't note exactly what the procedure was. It's now clear that he'll be unable to return until some point in 2023, likely closer to midseason. Rowan Wick seemingly has a firmer grip on the Cubs' closer job in Heuer's absence, with Brad Wieck and Manuel Rodriguez lining up as potential challengers.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Codi Heuer: Notches second save
Heuer pitched a perfect inning to earn the save in Wednesday's 3-2 win over Pittsburgh.
Entering Wednesday, the right-hander had allowed six runs across two innings in his last three appearances. Interestingly, Heuer received the save chance after Rowan Wick was deployed in the eighth inning. Both relievers have struggled lately, but they contributed two of the Cubs' four scoreless innings out of the bullpen. For the season, Heuer has a 4.28 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, 56:23 K:BB and 7-4 record across 67.1 innings between the Cubs and the White Sox.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Codi Heuer: Takes fourth loss in relief
Heuer (7-4) allowed two earned runs on one hit and three walks while striking out one across one inning, taking the loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.
Heuer entered the ninth inning in a tie game, and quickly gave the lead to St. Louis. Although two of the walks were intentional, it wasn't a good showing for the pitcher, who also had a wild pitch that allowed a run to score. The 24-year-old has a 3.25 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 17 punchouts in 27.2 innings with the Cubs this season.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Codi Heuer: Records first save with new team
Heuer pitched two perfect innings of relief with two strikeouts to earn the save in Tuesday's win over the Reds.
Heuer had to do a little extra work to secure his first save in a Cubs uniform and second in the majors after logging one last year. Since coming over from the crosstown White Sox before the trade deadline, the righty has posted an impressive 1.80 ERA across 10 innings of work with six strikeouts. The 25-year-old Heuer could see more save opportunities for the rebuilding Cubs down the stretch as the team takes stock of young players heading into next season.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Codi Heuer: Gives up two runs Saturday
Heuer (4-2) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Marlins after allowing two unearned runs on two hits while fanning one across one inning.
Heuer pitched the eighth with the Cubs holding a one-run lead, but he was unable to maintain that advantage and ultimately gave up both the tying and winning runs -- though both runs came home thanks to a fielding error by Sergio Alcantara. The right-hander, who was acquired by the Cubs from the White Sox before the trade deadline, owns a 2.25 ERA through seven appearances (eight innings) with the Cubs.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Codi Heuer: Acquired by Cubs
Heuer and Nick Madrigal (hamstring) were sent from the White Sox to the Cubs in exchange for Craig Kimbrel on Friday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Heuer is clearly the lesser part of the return for the Cubs but should still play a role for his new team. The 25-year-old righty has seen his ERA jump from 1.52 last year to 5.12 this season, though a similar jump in his BABIP from .193 to .360 accounts for much of that difference. He hasn't been a particularly exciting weapon this season, striking out a roughly average 23.5 percent of opposing batters, but it won't take much to earn high-leverage opportunities down the stretch for a Cubs team that's in the process of trading away most of its veterans....

White Sox's Codi Heuer: Helps pick up split
Heuer (3-1) earned the win in the second game of Friday's doubleheader. He allowed one hit and struck out two over a scoreless inning in a 3-1 win over the Royals.
Michael Kopech made a spot start in the nightcap but was pulled after four innings, gifting Heuer a chance for his third win. The right-handed setup man has not allowed a run in seven of his last nine outings, picking up two wins and three holds during that run.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Codi Heuer: Secures second win
Heuer (2-1) earned the win Friday against the Rangers, allowing two hits and striking out one across 1.1 scoreless innings.
After back-to-back ugly outings, Heuer put together a solid performance Friday, successfully setting down the Rangers' batters in the seventh inning. After allowing two singles in the eighth inning, Heuer was pulled in favor of closer Liam Hendricks. The 24-year-old has only walked one batter across 11 innings this year and owns a 4.91 ERA, inflated by two poor recent outings.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Codi Heuer: Woeful outing Saturday
Heuer (1-1) gave up three runs on three hits while striking out four across 1.2 innings Saturday against the Red Sox. He was tagged with the loss.
Heuer was coming off three straight scoreless outings and had allowed just one run across 6.2 innings before Saturday's contest, but the wheels came off and he was roughed up by Boston. As a result, his ERA spiked from 1.35 to 4.32, though one encouraging sign is the fact that he's now on a run of five straight outings while walking anyone.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Codi Heuer: Claims win in relief
Heuer (1-0) allowed one hit and struck out four over 2.1 scoreless innings to pick up his first win in Monday's 4-3 victory over Cleveland.
Heuer has now delivered four scoreless efforts in five appearances, and this was his longest outing yet. While Chicago's vaunted bullpen has stumbled out of the gate, the right-handed Heuer has been as good as he was in 2020. He's allowed one run, seven hits and one walk while striking out eight over 6.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Codi Heuer: Taken deep Sunday
Heuer allowed one run on three hits in Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Angels.
Heuer allowed his first run of the season when he was tagged for a solo home run by Jared Walsh in the fifth inning. He became the fourth White Sox reliever to permit a homer. Chicago's bullpen was considered a strength entering the season, but thus far the 'pen is 1-3 with a 5.52 ERA.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Codi Heuer: Piling up Ks
Heuer allowed one hit and struck out three over one inning in Tuesday's spring game against the Cubs.
Heuer permitted a leadoff triple before striking out the side to finish off the eighth inning. He's fanned 13 batters without a walk over eight Cactus League innings. Heuer, who's pitched multiple innings in two of his six spring outings, will be part of a deep White Sox bullpen, likely in a middle-relief role.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Codi Heuer: Throwing spring blanks
Heuer earned a save Thursday, striking out three over two scoreless innings against the Royals.
Heuer has not allowed a run or walk over seven Cactus League innings. He was an effective member of the White Sox's bullpen in 2020 and is expected to return in 2021, likely in a middle-relief role. The 24-year-old right-hander has thrown two innings in each of his last two spring appearances.... See More ... See Less
