2022 Fantasy Outlook
The Rangers cycled through a number of traditional starters and primary pitchers out of the bullpen in 2021, with Hearn proving to be one of the more reliable options. He covered 104.1 innings in total over his 42 outings (11 starts), going 6-6 while producing a 4.66 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 92:42 K:BB. While those numbers aren't outstanding, Hearn at least appears to be penciled into a rotation spot to begin the 2022 season, which is enough to make him a draftable option in AL-only leagues.

PTexas Rangers
May 13, 2022
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.
ANALYSIS
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.

Stat Review
How does Taylor Hearn compare to other starting pitchers?
This section compares his stats with all starting pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 120 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2019
Hearn missed out on an Opening Day roster spot in 2020, but he served as a late reliever for most of the season. He posted a solid 3.63 ERA over 14 appearances last year, and he had a 4.25 SIERA that suggested somewhat sustainable production. He displayed his above-average 95.0 mph average fastball velocity, and it translated to a 30.3 K% while he limited meaningful contact with a 4.9% barrel rate. While batters struggled to make hard contact on a regular basis, the southpaw posted an unimpressive 26.8 GB% that could pose problems over a larger sample. Hearn was in consideration for a back-end starting role, but he never entered the rotation during the shortened season. He could compete for a rotation spot once again, but he should also enter the year as one of the Rangers' top left-handed relief options. However, he's unlikely to pitch in many high-leverage situations, which hinders his fantasy value.
Hearn made 24 starts at the Double-A level in the Pirates' and Rangers' organizations. His ERA was nearly two runs lower in the Pirates' system, but his peripherals were very similar. For the season as a whole, he struck out 26.2% of opposing hitters while walking 8.8%, resulting in a 3.45 FIP that almost exactly matched his 3.49 ERA. If he maxes out, Hearn could be a mid-rotation starter with a repertoire that includes a fastball that can hit 97 mph and an above-average slider. Command and changeup development are questions for the lefty, however, as they are for so many young pitchers. A move to the bullpen could make him an interesting weapon as a classic fastball/slider high-leverage option. Hearn was added to the 40-man roster in November, so it's possible he debuts at some point later this year.
