MLB.com has a list of the top prospect on every team to watch out for. For the Rangers, it’s left-handed pitcher Taylor Hearn.
Here is what T. R. Sullivan said about him.
Spring Training is giving the Rangers a chance to take a good look at Hearn, 24, who was acquired from the Pirates in a trade for Keone Kela for ]at the end of July. He is at the forefront of a group of minor league starting pitchers who are expected to make an impact at the big league level in two to three years. Hearn, who is from nearby Royse City, has a fastball that hits 97-98 miles per hour but still has to refine his location. He has a good feel for a changeup, but is still working on his slider. He could end up with a future in the bullpen, but the Rangers will give him a chance to start.
