Top Taylor Hearn News

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Will return as reliever

    Hearn will work out of the bullpen at Triple-A Round Rock and is expected to return to the majors as a multi-inning reliever, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports. "When we bring him back, and he'll be back, the biggest thing is to put him in a multi-inning reliever role," Texas manager Chris Woodward said. "We just want to see the power and velocity come back."

    Woodward announced prior to three-game series with Washington over the weekend that Hearn would no longer start. The left-hander, who has a 6.25 ERA over 13 starts, then threw four scoreless innings Saturday as a reliever before being optioned to Round Rock. He should be back with Texas post All-Star break. Hearn's removal from the rotation opens an opportunity, but there's no obvious choice in the minors. Both A.J. Alexy (7.03 ERA) and Cole Winn (5.43) have not shown much for the Express over the first few months. Spencer Howard, who opened the season in the majors before being optioned when MLB rosters were trimmed at the end of April, has pitched well of late.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Optioned to Triple-A

    Hearn was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock following Saturday's victory over the Nationals.

    Hearn will report to Round Rock after he was recently moved to the Rangers' bullpen. The left-hander has struggled greatly this season, posting a 6.25 ERA and 1.75 WHIP with 54 strikeouts over 59 innings in 13 starts. It remains unclear who will replace Hearn in the starting rotation, but the team is expected to make a corresponding move Sunday.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Available in relief this weekend

    Hearn will be available out of the bullpen during the Rangers' weekend series against Washington, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.

    Hearn's first 13 appearances of the season came as a starter, but he posted a 7.02 ERA and 1.83 WHIP in 33.1 innings over his last seven starts. While the Rangers haven't revealed their rotation for their weekend series, Hearn will shift to the bullpen for now. It's not yet clear whether he'll rejoin the starting rotation next week.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Rough outing in loss

    Hearn (4-5) took the loss Saturday, allowing eight runs on 10 hits while striking out four and walking none over 3.2 innings.

    Hearn was tagged for 10 hits and eight earned runs in Saturday's loss. He did not look sharp, throwing just 49 of 79 pitches for strikes across 3.2 frames. The eight runs were the most Hearn has allowed in a single game this season. One positive is that the lefty did not allow any walks in the outing. The rough game added nearly a run to his ERA, which now sits at 6.25.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Coughs up three runs

    Hearn allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks over 5.1 innings in Monday's win over Houston. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    Hearn was tagged with three runs in the first two frames but he settled with 3.1 scoreless innings after that. He's allowed three or fewer runs in four straight outings and seven of his last eight. Hearn owns a 5.37 ERA with a 50:28 K:BB through 12 starts this season. The 27-year-old is projected to start in Detroit this weekend.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Collects fourth win

    Hearn (4-4) picked up the win in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Guardians, giving up three runs on four hits and two walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out six.

    The southpaw took a shutout into the sixth inning before running into trouble and getting the hook one out short of his second quality start of the season. Hearn remains inconsistent, but the Rangers seem willing to live with the 27-year-old's growing pains as he handles a regular rotation spot for the first time. He'll take a 5.40 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 47:25 K:BB through 50 innings into his next start.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Takes fourth loss

    Hearn (3-4) allowed three earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out three across four innings to take the loss Thursday against the Rays.

    Hearn labored through the third inning as he walked three and allowed two hits to account for two of his three earned runs. He's been inconsistent in his ability to work deep into games, as he's now failed to record at least 15 outs in three of his last four starts. That gives Hearn little margin for error when it comes to his ratio stats, and he now owns a 5.48 ERA across 10 starts for the campaign.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Cruises to third win

    Hearn (3-3) picked up the win in Saturday's 11-4 rout of the A's, giving up three runs (two earned) on eight hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out five.

    There wasn't much suspense in the game after the Rangers grabbed a 4-0 lead in the third inning, but Hearn came through with his first quality start of the season, and his first outing of more than five innings. The southpaw will take a 5.36 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 38:19 K:BB through 40.1 innings into his next start.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Surrenders three runs in loss

    Hearn (2-3) took the loss during Sunday's 5-2 defeat against the Astros, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks with two strikeouts in 4.2 innings.

    Hearn was done in by the top of Houston's order Sunday, with the top five batters in the lineup accounting for all the damage except for one hit. The 27-year-old has now failed to surpass five innings in any of his eight starts, and Hearn has walked multiple batters in each of his last four games. He'll carry a 5.77 ERA into a start projected to come next weekend against Oakland.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Allows three runs in no-decision

    Hearn did not factor into the decision Tuesday against the Angels, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two over four innings.

    The lefty served up a couple long balls but otherwise held his own against the No. 2 scoring offense in MLB. Hearn has endured a tough schedule to date in 2022, facing the Angels twice along with Atlanta and Houston. He's mostly struggled with a 5.46 ERA to this point, though he did have a gem against Kansas City on May 12 (five scoreless innings, one hit allowed). If he can make his layups, Hearn could eventually pop up on the radar as a streamer in shallower leagues.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Tosses five scoreless

    Hearn (2-2) earned the win after allowing one hit and three walks across five scoreless innings during Thursday's 3-1 victory over the Royals. He struck out three.

    His last start was skipped due to the return of Jon Gray (knee), but Hearn returned to the rotation with his best outing of the season. The lefty has finished five innings in each of his last three starts and sports a 1.13 WHIP and a 15:7 K:BB across those contests. Hearn's next start is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday's matchup with the Angels.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: In bullpen this weekend

    Hearn will be available out of the bullpen for this weekend's three-game series against the Yankees before potentially slotting back into the rotation Tuesday or Wednesday versus Kansas City, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    With Jon Gray (knee) having made his return from the injured list and the Rangers getting two days off this week, the Rangers will temporarily run out a four-man rotation. Hearn finds himself as the odd man out for now, but assuming he isn't needed to cover a significant amount of innings this weekend, he should be ready to slot back into the rotation against the Royals. Through his five starts this season, Hearn has gone 1-2 with a 6.53 ERA and 1.84 WHIP across 20.2 innings.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Grabs first win

    Hearn (1-2) earned his first victory of the season Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six over five innings in a 7-3 win over Atlanta.

    Hearn navigated around seven baserunners, giving up the two runs in a lengthy third inning, while the offense picked him up. Texas hitters plated runs in each of the first three innings, including a four-run third that put the Rangers up 7-2. All that was left for Hearn was to keep the ball in play and get through five innings for the win. The left-hander is off to a bumpy beginning with a 6.53 ERA over five starts in which he's averaged a little more than four innings. Hearn lines up to start the second game of the series against the Yankees this coming Saturday in New York.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Ineffective over five innings

    Hearn (0-2) picked up a loss after he pitched five innings, giving up four runs on five hits and a walk while striking out four against the Astros on Tuesday.

    Hearn put together his longest outing of the season, tossing five innings for the first time this year. Overall though, it was another difficult outing for the 27-year-old as he gave up one run in the second inning on a Jeremy Pena single and three more in the fourth inning after Alex Bregman scored on a groundout and Kyle Tucker launched a two-run homer. He now has a 0-2 record with a 7.47 ERA and 1.98 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 15.2 innings in four starts. Hearn will look to get his first win of the campaign when he takes on the Braves in his next expected start Sunday.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Wild in no-decision

    Hearn completed three innings against Seattle on Thursday, allowing five runs on four hits and four walks while striking out four. He did not factor in the decision.

    The southpaw struggled to get the ball over the plate Thursday, throwing only 41 of 78 pitches for strikes and issuing a season-high four walks. Hearn's command was also spotty, as three of the four hits against him went for extra bases, including two that left the park. The poor outing didn't result in a loss for Hearn, but it did push his ERA up to 7.59 on the campaign. He's notched 14 strikeouts over 10.2 frames, but otherwise it's been a rough ride for fantasy managers who roster him.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Struggles in second start

    Hearn (0-1) took the loss against the Angels on Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk over 3.2 innings. He struck out four.

    Hearn made it through his first two frames without incident before serving up three runs on four singles and a walk in the top of the third. Texas bounced back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the frame, and Hearn was pulled in the fourth after giving up a two-out single. The southpaw hasn't yet pitched into the fifth inning this season, but he's at least posted a solid strikeout total with 10 across 7.2 frames. He's tentatively expected to take the mound on the road against Oakland on Friday.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Fans six but gives up eight hits

    Hearn didn't factor into the decision Monday against the Rockies after tossing four innings of one-run ball, allowing eight hits and a walk while fanning six.

    The 27-year-old southpaw gave up plenty of contact despite tossing 54 of his 76 pitches for strikes, but at least he found a way to limit the damage. Hearn, who didn't see action in the Rangers' opening series against the Blue Jays last week, is projected to have a two-start week since he's scheduled to make his second start April 17 against the Angels in Arlington.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Taking hill for home opener

    Hearn will start the Rangers' fourth game of the season Monday versus the Rockies in Texas.

    Though Hearn won't be used in the Rangers' season-opening series this weekend, those invested in the lefty in deeper mixed leagues or AL-only formats may have been reluctant to use him anyway in a road matchup against a loaded Toronto offense. Instead, Hearn gets a more favorable draw to begin the 2022 campaign, as he'll line up for a two-start week. After drawing the Rockies in the Rangers' home opener, Hearn is projected to make his second start April 17 against the Angels in Arlington.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Throws four innings

    Hearn allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out one over four innings in Thursday's spring training start against the Dodgers.

    Hearn had traffic on the bases in each inning but limited the damage. Texas manager Chris Woodward talked about the young lefty's maturity with Kennedi Landry of MLB.com. "He's able to deal with adversity much better," the manager said. "He's able to execute better, just in a much better place." In three Cactus League starts. Hearn has allowed two runs on nine hits and two walks with six strikeouts over 8.2 innings. With five spring training games remaining, there's one more potential start for Hearn, or the team could hold him back to follow Opening Day starter Jon Gray in the rotation. If that's the case he'll pitch Saturday, April 8, against the Blue Jays.
