Jameson Taillon is out for the year recovering from Tommy John surgery which has impacted the rankings of the Pirates farm system.

Fangraphs Interviews Pirates Prospect Jameson Taillon


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.”
