News 
  Jameson Taillon plans to use more four-seamers up in the zone and reduce the usage of his sinker.
Corbin Young
Sat, Feb 20th
  The Pirates traded RHP Jameson Taillon to the Yankees in exchange for prospects Miguel Yajure, Roansy Conteras, Maikol Escotto and Canaan Smith.
Brad Camara
Sun, Jan 24th
  Jameson Taillon is rumored to be in trade talks, with the Yankees the leading candidate.

Notes 
  Taillon has undergone Tommy John surgery twice, and has totaled just 37 1/3 innings over the last two years. And really, he's had only one truly notable year, which was in 2018. But what separated Taillon that year was his outstanding slider, which not only performed exceedingly well, but also buoyed the effectiveness of the rest of his pitches. Now with the Yankees, Taillon has plenty of upside. But, as always, health remains the concern, and is the reason you shouldn't draft him until you've filled out most of your staff.
