Jameson Taillon pitched 3 1/3 scoreless innings allowing two hits with one walk and two strikeouts on Sunday in a no-decision against the Rays.
Taillon has been dealing with an ankle injury but was able to go on Sunday in a critical game for the team. The 29-year-old righty finishes the regular season with a 4.30 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 140/44 K/BB ratio across 144 1/3 innings (29 starts).
Jameson Taillon was removed during the third inning of Tuesday's start against the Blue Jays after appearing to aggravate his right ankle injury, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Taillon has been diagnosed with a reaggravation of his previous right ankle injury. Taillon spent nearly three weeks on the IL with a partially torn tendon in his right ankle before returning to the Yankees' starting rotation on Tuesday night in Toronto and logging just 38 pitches over 2 1/3 innings.
Jameson Taillon (ankle) has been activated from the 10-day injured list by the Yankees.
More good news for the Yankees, as they look to stay hot as they begin a tough final week stretch in their quest to make the postseason on the road against the Blue Jays. Taillon has had quite the inconsistent first season with the Yankees. In his last seven starts, he has one win and two losses, a 5.21 earned run average, and 38 strikeouts in 38 innings pitched. They will look to get the version of Taillon that shined over his last 15 starts. In that span, he had seven wins and two losses, a 3.59 earned run average, and 78 strikeouts over 85.1 innings pitched.
Yankees pitcher Jameson Taillon, who is currently on the 10-day IL with a right ankle tendon injury, threw three innings of rehab work at Triple-A on Wednesday. His final line included two earned runs, four hits, and two strikeouts.
Through 27 starts with the Yankees this season, Taillon is 8-6 with a 4.41 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and .241 OBA. He went 4-0 with a 1.16 ERA in July before struggling in August (plus one start in September).
Yankees starting pitcher Jameson Taillon began throwing off flat ground on Monday, the first time since he injured his ankle.
Taillon's return would be a huge boost for a reeling Yankees team that badly needs quality pitching they can trust. After a rough first half of the season, Taillon started to put it together in July and August before tweaking his ankle and would immediately slot in as the team's number two starter once he returns. Still, Taillon will need to throw off the mound a couple times before we can put a timeline on his return.
