The Next Steps in Jameson Taillon’s Tommy John Rehab Process

Jameson Taillon threw a bullpen session yesterday, which I outlined in the daily recap. Taillon is still in “rehab mode” as Clint Hurdle put it, which means he is still only throwing bullpen sessions on Tuesday and Friday, and still only at 25 pitches per session. One positive sign yesterday was that Taillon was using his curveball and changeup in the bullpen. This was the first...

Spring Training Notes: Taillon Rehab Status, Live BPs, Kang Gets a Hit

The first week of Spring Training was mostly the same stuff over and over. Throwing programs, bullpen sessions, fielding practice, and batting practice.

Jameson Taillon, Tommy John surgery, and the Pirates’ pitching depth

Let’s start off up front: the news about Jameson Taillon’s Tommy John surgery is terrible. This sort of injury was the elephant in the room when Taillon and Cole were the Pirates’ only two truly elite prospects a couple of years ago, and it was a terrifying thought in 2011 and early 2012. The Pirates’ system has rounded out quite a bit since then and that cushions the blow...
