Jameson Taillon had an impressive finish to his 2012 season. The big right hander finished at Double-A Altoona and showed everyone why he was ready for the challenge.
Here are the numbers Taillon put up to earn his promotion from High-A Bradenton.
These were his numbers with Altoona.
David Laurila of Fangraphs asked him a few questions in this interview. We especially liked this quote.
“What helps me is going out and just playing the game, and not over-thinking. If a guy hits a double, I don’t have to try to do more, I can just keep trusting my stuff and put the next guy on the ground. Just because a guy got a hit doesn’t mean I screwed up and have to change everything. I don’t have to rear back. I can stay within myself, have fun, and pitch.”
