Jameson Taillon (elbow) placed on 60-day IL

The Pirates placed Jameson Taillon (elbow) on the 60-day injured list.

Fantasy Impact

Taillon underwent Tommy John surgery last August and isn't expected to pitch MLB's shortened 2020 season. However, the former top prospect is expected to be healthy entering 2021. He can be crossed off draft boards for this summer.

Jameson Taillon (elbow) threw off a bullpen at PNC Park on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Taillon is 10 months into his rehab and it's unclear if he'll pitch at all in 2020. This is his second Tommy John surgery so the Pirates will likely ere on the side of caution when making a decision about this year.

Jameson Taillon (elbow) will not pitch in 2020

Jameson Taillon (elbow) will not return in 2020 even if the season is considerably delayed.

Fantasy Impact

Taillon underwent Tommy John surgery in August, and was rehabbing towards a 2020 return. The Pirates ultimately decided to rule him out for 2020 season, even if the year is considerably delayed. This is second time in his career Taillon underwent Tommy John surgery. Pittsburg is being cautious with their former number two overall pick, and he will likely return to the mound in 2021. Taillon is mainly a stash in dynasty leagues and can be avoided in re-draft formats.

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.
