  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Reaches deal with Texas

    Hearn agreed to a one-year contract with the Rangers on Friday to avoid arbitration.

    Hearn worked as a swingman for the Rangers last season with 13 starts in 31 appearances, and he had a 5.13 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 97:43 K:BB across 100 innings. Texas has significantly revamped its rotation during the offseason, so the 28-year-old will likely be limited to a relief role in 2023.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Earns win in relief

    Hearn (6-7) earned the win in Tuesday's 4-3 victory over the Astros. He allowed zero runs on two hits and zero walks while striking out two over two innings.

    Hearn entered a tied ballgame in the fifth and threw two scoreless innings before the Rangers would score a run in the top of the seventh to put him in line for the win, his sixth on the season. Hearn now has a 2.84 ERA in 19 innings since being called up from Triple-A on Aug. 2 to fill a multi-inning relief role, a major improvement over the 5.50 ERA he had in 70.1 innings up to that point in the majors this season.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Throws two scoreless in return

    Hearn allowed one walk and struck out one over two scoreless relief innings in Tuesday's 8-2 loss to Baltimore.

    Hearn was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock where he's been working on a transition from starter to multi-inning reliever. Despite the need to fill a rotation spot after Jon Gray (left oblique) was placed on the injured list, the Rangers will keep Hearn in his current role. The club feels he can be effective when not having to face lineups multiple times in a game. The lefty has a 1.35 ERA over 13.2 innings as a reliever in the bigs.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Rejoins big club

    Hearn was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, Joseph Hoyt of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Hearn was demoted last week but will rejoin the Rangers on Tuesday with Jon Gray (oblique) headed to the injured list. Hearn will remain in the bullpen despite the open rotation spot, as he's pitched well in relief over his last three outings with a 1.59 ERA and 1.15 WHIP across 11.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Heading to minors

    Hearn was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.

    The left-hander pitched behind an opener twice after being recalled by the Rangers on July 15, and he fared well, with two earned runs allowed and a 10:3 K:BB across 7.1 innings. However, it wasn't enough to stick in the rotation with Dane Dunning (ankle) returning from the injured list. Hearn's performance could earn him more opportunities later in the year.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Successful as bulk reliever

    Hearn registered a no-decision during Saturday's 3-1 loss to Oakland, allowing three hits and one walk with three strikeouts in 3.1 scoreless innings.

    Hearn entered in the second inning following opener Matt Bush and navigated three successful frames before departing in the fifth with two on and one out. Reliever Dennis Santana escaped the jam with a double play to give Hearn his second scoreless outing in his last three appearances. Since being shifted to the bulk role, the 27-year-old has surrendered four runs (two earned) and 13 baserunners with 11 strikeouts in 11.1 innings across three appearances.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Likely working behind opener

    Hearn will likely be available as the primary pitcher Saturday in Oakland since Matt Bush will serve as the opener.

    Hearn was initially listed as the probable starter for Saturday's matchup, but it appears as though his appearance will come as a bulk reliever instead. The southpaw returned to the major-league mound July 15 and allowed four runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out seven in four innings against the Mariners.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Gets another turn in rotation

    Hearn is scheduled to make a start or work as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen in Saturday's game in Oakland, Jeff Wilson of reports.

    The southpaw is getting a second straight turn through the rotation after he worked four innings and struck out seven while allowing four runs (two earned) in his return from Triple-A Round Rock on July 15 versus the Mariners. Hearn could be headed back to Round Rock or to the bullpen after Saturday's outing, as the Rangers plan to add Dane Dunning (ankle) back from the 15-day injured list and into the rotation next week in Seattle.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Fans seven in loss

    Hearn (4-6) allowed four runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks over four innings Friday, striking out seven and taking a loss against Seattle.

    After Matt Bush opened the game with a scoreless frame, Hearn took the mound in the second inning. He threw two shutout innings himself before the Mariners tagged him for three runs in the fourth. Hearn then allowed another run in the fifth. It was his first MLB appearance since June 25 and his season ERA dropped slightly to 5.78. In five June outings before his demotion, the 27-year-old posted a 6.75 ERA across 22.2 innings.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Likely starting Friday

    Hearn was added to the Rangers' taxi squad Thursday and will likely start Friday's game against the Mariners, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    Hearn was scratched from his scheduled start at Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday to join the taxi squad, so he'll be fully rested if he ultimately gets the starting nod for Friday's matchup. Although the team expected him to work as a long reliever in the minors, he made two starts and posted a 4.50 ERA, 16:5 K:BB and 1.10 WHIP in 10 innings. The southpaw has a 5.86 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in 63 innings over 14 appearances (13 starts) with the Rangers this year.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Officially recalled Friday

    Hearn was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.

    Hearn lasted five innings during his two appearances in Round Rock and will serve as the Rangers' bulk-relief pitcher Friday against the Mariners while Matt Bush operates as the opener. Over 14 appearances (13 starts) in the majors this year, Hearn has posted a 5.86 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in 63 innings.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Set for bulk-relief role

    Hearn will be called up from Triple-A Round Rock to serve as the Rangers' bulk-relief pitcher Friday against the Mariners, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Hearn joined the Rangers taxi squad Thursday and will likely be able to handle a heavy workload after completing five innings in each of his last two starts with Round Rock. Hearn has struggled to a 5.86 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 55:30 K:BB across 63 innings with the Rangers this season. Matt Bush will serve as the opener ahead of Hearn.

  • 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 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 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.
