Pirates to skip Jameson Taillon's next turn
Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Jameson Taillon will be skipped on his next turn through the Pirates' rotation.
Elbow and hernia troubles forced Taillon to miss all of the 2014 and 2015 seasons, so the Pirates are attempting to be smart regarding his workload, all while trying to stay in the National League Wild Card hunt. Taillon will be replaced by Drew Hutchison on Saturday against the Cincinnati Reds. The Pirates are also skipping Chad Kuhl's next turn since Gerrit Cole will return from the disabled list on Monday.
During his first season in the majors, Taillon has posted a 3.27 ERA, 3.27 xFIP and a 20.6 strikeout percentage (league average is 21.0 percent) in 88 innings pitched. Our algorithms currently give the Pirates just a 2.3 percent chance of making the playoffs.
