Pirates | Jameson Taillon fans seven

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 17:05:36 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon struck out a career-high seven, allowing four runs on eight hits over six innings in a no decision against the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Although it wasn't his most effective start, Taillon's strikeout total was encouraging. His potential alone makes him worth owning in all but the shallowest of leagues.

Pirates | Jameson Taillon's status up in the air

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 13:32:22 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon (head) has 24 hours before a decision needs to be made concerning a potential stint on the 7-day concussion disabled list. A team trainer said everything checked out in a "very encouraging manner," though.

Fantasy Tip: Taillon was struck in the head by a batted ball in the second inning of the game Tuesday, July 19, but he remained in the game and allowed just one run on five hits over six innings. Stay tuned for updates, but Taillon could escape a DL stint this time around.

Pirates | Jameson Taillon pitches well in return

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 21:06:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon allowed just one run on five hits over six innings against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, July 19, despite being struck in the head by a batted ball in the second inning. He walked none and fanned three.

Fantasy Tip: Taillon, who was fresh off the DL, deserves credit for shaking off a line drive to the back of the head and making an early 2-0 lead hold up. Unfortunately, Mark Melancon blew the save and cost Taillon the W, but the rookie still looks like an interesting option in NL-only leagues.

Pirates | Jameson Taillon hit in head

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:48:51 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon (head) was hit in the head by a line drive against the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday, July 19, but was able to stay in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if Taillon is diagnosed with a concussion over the next few days. He has had some solid performances since being called up from the minor leagues and should be used in NL-only and some deeper leagues as long as he is healthy.

Pirates | Jameson Taillon activated

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 13:11:44 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 19, and will be the starting pitcher against the Milwaukee Brewers. The team also optioned SP Chad Kuhl to Class AAA Indianapolis.

Fantasy Tip: Taillon returns to the rotation after missing about three weeks because of a shoulder injury. He has been a bit inconsistent in his five starts this season but could be a starting candidate in daily fantasy leagues because of the matchup. Owners in NL-only leagues can hold onto Kuhl because he likely will return later in the season.

Pirates | Jameson Taillon to pitch Tuesday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 09:43:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon (shoulder) is scheduled to come off the disabled list to face the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday, July 19. SP Jeff Locke will start against Milwaukee Wednesday, July 20, with SP Francisco Liriano pitching Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Taillon is 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA through his first five MLB starts, with five walks and 21 strikeouts over 28 innings. Although the matchup appears favorable, DFS owners may want to avoid using the 24-year-old right-hander in his first game after being activated.

Pirates | Jameson Taillon to be limited

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 15:19:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon (shoulder) could be skipped for a start or two in the second half of the season after he comes off the disabled list as the Pirates look to limit his workload down the stretch. Taillon missed the last two seasons with elbow and hernia surgeries.

Fantasy Tip: Taillon is one of the bigger pitching prospects in the majors, and he's pitched well in his first five big league starts with a 3.86 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 6.8 K/9. He should be stashed in all fantasy formats, but keep expectations in check down the stretch as the Bucs play it safe with him.

Pirates | Jameson Taillon back soon after break

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 08:56:36 -0700

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon (shoulder) is expected to return shortly after the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news, but Taillon is starting to become a scary commodity with these arm injuries piling up. Keep him stashed in all formats.
