Jameson Taillon turned in a dominant performance on Friday, allowing just one hit and one walk over six scoreless innings while striking out nine.
Despite his stellar outing, Taillon was unable to secure the win as the Cubs fell to the Diamondbacks by a score of 1-0. This impressive start should provide a boost to Taillon's fantasy value going forward, as he continues to show signs of improvement. Prior to this game, Taillon had struggled with a 5.27 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP over 26 starts this season. However, his strong strikeout numbers and ability to limit baserunners in this outing suggest that he may be turning a corner. Fantasy managers should keep a close eye on Taillon as he looks to build on this performance in his next start.
