Jameson Taillon Rumor: Yankees have had conversations about Taillon

Jameson Taillon and teammate Josh Bell have been involved in trade talks between the Pirates and the Yankees, according to beat writer Jason Mackey.

Fantasy Impact

Mackey did note that he was "unsure on seriousness or scope" of the talks but it's still worth noting. Taillon missed the entire 2020 season recovering from Tommy John surgery but is expected to be ready to go for spring training. He was able to avoid arbitration with Pittsburgh as well by just agreeing to a one-year, $2.25 million contract in early December. Taillon going to New York would make more sense than Josh Bell but it's unclear if they would be involved in a package deal or not, stay tuned.
