Hefner allowed one run on two hits in three innings in the Gulf Coast League. He did not walk a batter and struck out one.
Hefner said recently that he may be able to pitch in the major league game in 2014 (ESPN, June 22).
“If there’s a need here, and they want me here, I can foresee that,” Hefner said.
Hefner underwent Tommy John surgery on August 28, 2013, six weeks before Matt Harvey had the same surgery.
