Cory Giger of the Altoona Mirror reports that Jameson Taillon will be moving up to Triple-A at the start of next week. #Pirates moving prized RHP Jameson Taillon up to AAA Indy. Expected to be activated Monday. @JTaillon19 went 4-7, 3.67 for @AltoonaCurve. — Cory Giger (@CoryGiger) August 2, 2013 Jameson Taillon will be promoted to Indianapolis. Taillon has a 3.67 ERA in 110.1 innings this year, with a 106:36 K/BB ratio. He was hammered a few starts ago for ten runs in 3.1 innings, which really inflated the ERA. Since that start he has combined for four earned runs in 12 innings, with a 13:2 K/BB ratio. Taillon needs some work developing his changeup and consistently throwing down in the zone. He also has focused on mixing his pitches up this year. Earlier in the season Giger made a comment about how Taillon looked to be ahead of Gerrit Cole in that regard, comparing the two when they were with Altoona. James Santelli saw Taillon pitch back in June, and wrote about what he needs to work on this year. This move will give Taillon a few starts in Triple-A, and most likely some playoff experience. That’s similar to the route he took last year with Bradenton, moving up to Altoona in early August. It’s also similar to Gerrit Cole getting moved up for his final start in Indianapolis, as well as a playoff start. I’d expect Taillon to start in Triple-A next year, and move up to the majors by mid-season, just like Cole did this year.
