Pittsburgh Pirates Jameson Taillon Number 18, Does Showdown With Bryce Harper Loom?

The accolades keep pouring in for the Pittsburgh Pirates Jameson Taillon

The Pittsburgh Pirates Jameson Taillon is showing up everywhere.  MLB.com released their Top 50 Prospects list and guess where the first Pirates high school drafted player in five years showed up?  That’s right.  Taillon cracked the top twenty. 

The list was revealed last evening on the MLB Network by Jonathan Mayo. 

The 6’6″ right-hander is expected to play for the West Virginia Power this season.  Bryce Harper who checked in at number three on the MLB.com prospect list is expected to begin in Hagerstown.   If that is the case, an interesting matchup might come early in the season.  If it does, you bet your ass we will be there.

The Hagerstown Suns open on the road before their homestand begins on April 15. An April highlight in West Virginia for Buccos fans is the potential matchup of Harper and Jameson Taillon?
