Pirates SP prospect Jameson Taillon throws live BP Friday

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/13/15) Pirates starting pitcher prospect Jameson Taillon threw his first live batting practice Friday since undergoing Tommy John surgery last year, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. He threw 20 pitches, which included fastballs and changeups.

Pirates' Jameson Taillon feels good after Tuesday side session

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/15) Pirates pitcher Jameson Taillon (elbow) threw 34 pitches in a side session Tuesday and woke up Wednesday feeling good, MLB.com reports. Assuming he's cleared to continue his progress in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, he'll throw live batting practice Friday.

"I'm going to try to downplay it in my head, at least. It's just a live BP," Taillon said. "But I know when I get out there I'll have some extra adrenaline, so I'm trying to relax about it and treat it for what it is, just another step. But the competitive juices and everything, I'm extremely excited to get that feeling back."

Taillon is hoping to be ready for game action by April 9, which is the one-year anniversary of his procedure.

"It feels really good. My delivery's in a good place. Feeling strong. Feels healthy," he said. "Mentally, I feel really good. I feel like I don't have a block in my head or anything. I'm not really thinking about it, so that's a positive."

Pirates' Jameson Taillon to face hitters next week

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/6/15) Pirates pitcher Jameson Taillon will face hitters next week, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Taillon underwent Tommy John surgery last April, but is working his way back. Taillon tossed a 30 pitch bullpen session on Friday. He's expected to do it again on Tuesday. If his Tuesday session goes well, Taillon will throw live batting practice on Friday.

Taillon said he's feeling pretty good about his progress. "I'm feeling really strong, throwing the ball cleaner than I ever have," Taillon said. "Everything has been feeling really good. The elbow has been responding really well."

Taillon is expected to open the season in the minors, but could be promoted to the majors if he gets off to a strong start. 

Pirates' Taillon expected to throw against live batters next month

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/15/15) Pirates top pitching prospect Jameson Taillon is still working his way back from Tommy John surgery. He is already throwing in the bullpen is hoping to face live hitters in the next month.

"I'm throwing on a mound in the bullpen right now, I'll start facing hitters in a month. I won't be in a real live game until probably extended Spring Training, but that'll be right around the one-year mark," Taillon said to MILB.com. "Depending on how things go and how I feel, I don't think there's a reason I shouldn't get into a game by May. I feel strong, I'd like to make my way up to the big club at some point."

Taillon, who was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 draft, is also working on his breaking pitches.

"I started throwing breaking balls. I'm not on a set count of balls and I'm through the technical rehab stuff, so I'm getting ready for what I need to pitch competitively," Taillon said. "I've thrown so many balls, it gets repetitive, but I'm re-teaching myself how to compete and speed things up on the mound, get my adrenaline going. I'm starting to become a baseball player again instead of a rehabber."
