Jameson Taillon moved to 60-day IL

In order to make room on the 40-man roster for Jake Elmore, the Pirates have moved Jameson Taillon to the 60-day injured list. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

Fantasy Impact:

The procedural move means that Taillon (strained flexor tendon) won't be eligible to return until July, but he wasn't expected to return much earlier than that anyway. He won't begin throwing again until at least June and then will need to rebuild his arm strength. Taillon was off to a mildly disappointing start to the 2019 season, but is still well worth stashing in an IL spot.
