2021 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Allows four in loss
PTexas Rangers
September 29, 2021
Hearn (6-6) allowed four runs on six hits and one walk with two strikeouts over 5.1 innings, taking the loss in Wednesday's 7-2 defeat to the Angels.
ANALYSIS
Hearn allowed just one extra-base hit in his outing against the Angels on Wednesday, but he nonetheless surrendered four earned runs and picked up his sixth loss of the season. Since joining the Texas rotation on Aug. 17, the left-hander has a 5.56 ERA and has allowed seven home runs in 43.2 innings. Still, Hearn's solid 29:10 K:BB over that same span and his ability to eat innings make him an asset. He'll look to vie for a role with the Rangers next season.

Stat Review
How does Taylor Hearn compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 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 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.
