Rangers Send Pitcher, Rookie Infielder to Triple-A
Taylor Hearn pitched some of the best baseball he’s pitched all season on Saturday.
After the Rangers’ thrilling 3-2 win over the Nationals, the Rangers sent both Hearn and infielder Ezequiel Duran to Round Rock.
The Rangers will announce corresponding roster moves on Sunday.
Hearn, whose lost his turn in the rotation after he struggled in Detroit last week, pitched four scoreless, hitless innings in relief Sunday.
He entered the game in the second inning in relief of Brett Martin, who pitched one inning to start the game.
Hearn spoke to the media after the game and gave no hint that a move was coming, so it was unclear if he knew at that point.
The Rangers did not announce the move until the media cleared the locker room.
