  • Taylor Hearn: Heading overseas

    Hearn signed with the NPB's Hiroshima Carp on Saturday.

    Hearn logged a hefty 11.40 ERA and 2.07 WHIP across 15 innings between Atlanta, Kansas City and Texas last season. His numbers improved to a 3.33 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in Triple-A, but he'll opt to play in Japan rather than wait for a minor-league offer from an MLB team.

    Hearn cleared outright waivers Thursday and elected to become a free agent.

    Hearn is off the 40-man roster in Kansas City and will head to the open market. The 29-year-old left-hander was lit up for 19 earned runs over 15 major-league innings this season while bouncing between three different organizations.

    Hearn was traded from Texas to Atlanta on Monday but was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday. After spending less than a week with his new organization, the southpaw will be on the move again, but he'll have to settle for a role at Triple-A Omaha for now.

  • Braves' Taylor Hearn: Sent to minors after rough outing

    Atlanta optioned Hearn to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

    Hearn was moved off the 26-man active roster to clear room for right-hander AJ Smith-Shawver, who was called up from Gwinnett ahead of his spot start Sunday versus the Brewers. After being acquired from Texas on Monday, Hearn made his Atlanta debut out of the bullpen in Saturday's win over the Brewers and was lit up for four earned runs on two hits and two walks while recording just one out.

  • Braves' Taylor Hearn: Dealt to Atlanta

    Atlanta acquired Hearn from the Rangers on Monday in exchange for cash considerations, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Hearn holds a 5.11 ERA over 92 appearances -- 25 starts -- at the major-league level, although he's spent most of 2023 at Triple-A Round Rock. He has minor-league options remaining, but he looks set to report to the big-league club right away as he joins a new organization.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Dropped from 40-man roster

    Texas designated Hearn for assignment Wednesday.

    Hearn has been at Triple-A Round Rock since April and he will now either get claimed by another team, remain in the minors or get released outright, the second scenario being the most likely. The transaction was made to open a spot on the 40-man roster for Alex Speas, who had his contract selected from Round Rock on Wednesday.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Optioned to Triple-A

    Hearn was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock by the Rangers on Thursday.

    Hearn has struggled in a mop-up role, coughing up eight runs in seven innings. The Rangers will make a corresponding move prior to Friday's game in Houston.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Roughed up Saturday

    Hearn allowed four runs on five hits and one walk while striking out two over 1.2 innings in Saturday's 10-3 loss to the Cubs.

    The Rangers' bullpen had been sharp prior to Saturday, including Hearn, who had not allowed a hit and struck out four over his first 3.1 relief innings. The one-time starter found a measure of success as a multi-inning reliever in 2022. If there's a need for a fill-in starter, other starters in the organization have moved ahead of Hearn.

  • Rangers' Taylor Hearn: Clinches bullpen spot

    Hearn secured a spot in the Rangers' Opening Day bullpen after the team finalized its 26-man active roster Wednesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Hearn appeared to be on the roster bubble following a poor showing in spring training along with the fact that he had a minor-league option remaining, but Texas ultimately chose to keep him on hand as an extra lefty arm out of the bullpen over fellow southpaw John King, who was dispatched to Triple-A Round Rock. Though he worked as a swingman for Texas in 2022 while making 13 starts over his 31 appearances, Hearn is expected to serve as a full-time reliever in 2023, with most of his opportunities presumably coming in middle-inning or lower-leverage spots.

  • 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.
