Jameson Taillon undergoes Tommy John surgery

Jameson Taillion underwent Tommy John surgery Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Taillon underwent flexor tendon repair surgery Tuesday, and it was determined under the procedure that he also required Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career. He is expected to miss all of the 2020 season as a result. Prior to the injury, Taillon posted a 4.10 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 30:8 K:BB in 37 1/3 innings for the Pirates this season.

Jameson Taillon: season likely over

Jameson Taillon acknowledged Thursday that his 2019 season is likely over, after experiencing a setback in recovering from a strained right elbow.

Fantasy Impact

Taillon is scheduled to visit an orthopedic surgeon on Monday, who will determine whether Taillon's injury is serious enough to warrant Tommy John surgery, which would be the second of his career. Even if Taillon opts to pursue a non-surgical treatment plan for his injury, he will likely face a shutdown period that would prevent him from taking the mound again in 2019. Taillon's future prospects should be more clear early next week, after his appointment.

Jamison Taillon (elbow) will resume throwing this week

Jamison Taillon (elbow) will start playing catch Thursday or Friday of this week.

Fantasy Impact

Earlier reports were that Taillon was to begin playing catch this past weekend, but he'll wind up just a few days behind that schedule. He'll play catch for 10-to-14 days before being reevaluated to determine if he can ramp up his intensity.

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.

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.

Jameson Taillon (elbow) lands on 10-day injured list

The Pirates placed Jameson Taillon on the 10-day IL with a right elbow flexor strain.

Fantasy Impact

Pittsburgh has yet to say how severe the injury is. Taillon has been somewhat underwhelming to start the year, posting a 4.10 ERA with 31 strikeouts in 37 1/3 innings pitched. The former second overall draft pick posted a 3.20 ERA last season and was a popular breakout candidate entering 2019.
