Pitches from a half-windup, long-limbs, low-effort delivery but tends to fall towards the 1B side. Long arm action with above-average arm speed, three-quarters slot.
Bradenton Marauders (High A, Pirates)
Role 5, Set-Up
Easy velocity, velocity jumps on hitters when delivery is in sync and fastball has some tail, often flat and can easily be tracked.
Shorter action with tight spin, hard action, inconsistent with depth but features tilt, struggled with command of offering, often in the dirt. Future average offering.
Lacks arm speed on offering, some late tail but did not seem comfortable with pitch, could be a change of pace offering but will not be part of routine arsenal.
While Hearn has premium arm strength, holding his velocity deep into games, he profiles best in the bullpen given his lack of command, third pitch, and his delivery issues. In the bullpen he profiles as a set-up reliever, with the potential to close.
