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. Read Past Outlooks

Shut down with elbow irritation
PTexas Rangers
Elbow
August 5, 2019
Hearn's throwing program was shut down due to elbow irritation Monday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
ANALYSIS
Hearn recorded a single big-league out before landing on the injured list with elbow tightness in late April. He resumed throwing in July before the issue popped up again. The renewed irritation reportedly isn't related to his UCL, so Tommy John surgery isn't expected to be required, but he may not have time to build up the arm strength to pitch again this season.

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.
