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.”
