Malik Wright made a trip to Globe Life Field in Arlington to interview Swiss-Army knife pitcher Taylor Hearn. The third-year hurler has shown great versatility and maturity with his approach to pitching.
This is the first year that Hearn has pitched more than 17.1 innings. In 77.1 innings of work he has 77 K’s and a respectable ERA of 3.96. Sky is the limit for this MLBbro.
The Mets had big expectations coming into the season, but the season has certainly not gone the way the team envisioned. But Stroman has left it all on the field every time he has touched that mound. The Black Knight has been the ace of the staff in Jacob deGrom’s absence and he recently had another impressive start against one of the top teams in the league.
On August 22nd, the Mets took on the reigning World Series champions. Stroman was ready for that action and he let everyone know tthat despite his team’s collapse, he’s still on track and about his business. Stoman hurled six innings, striking out six while giving up two earned runs to secure the victory over the Dodgers.
Let’s be real here, the Dodgers can flat out hit, but Stroman kept the Mets in a good position to win the game and that’s what they did. Stroman put together another solid performance five days prior to playing the Dodgers. That game was against another top team in the San Francisco Giants.
The Mets lost that game by one run but Stroman was solid that night. He went seven innings giving up three runs and striking out nine.
Looking at those numbers, you’ll notice that he has a losing record, but he has a solid ERA. This season, Stroman just hasn’t got that run support on a consistent basis.
There’s no question that Stroman can pitch. The brother is very talented and each pitch he throws is effective.Stroman will be a free-agent after this season and if the Mets don’t re-sign him, teams will be knocking on that door to acquire him.
Our MLBbro is in his seventh season and he’s brought that excitement to the game over the last few years.
He can certainly make an impact on any team he plays for.
St. Louis Cardinals ace Jack Flaherty took the mound in search of his 10th win and had a solid outing on Wednesday. Black Jack pitched 6 innings, yielded two runs and K’d 8 in a hard luck no-decision against the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers.
Brandon Carr reflects on Cleveland pitcher Triston McKenzie’s near no-hitter. By the time the golden-armed rookie was finished dealing, he had 11K’s, owned Miguel Cabrera and the power outage was over in Michigan.
