|Pirates still deciding on treatment plan for Jameson Taillon |

(4/2/14) The Pirates are still deciding on a treatment plan after pitching prospect Jameson Taillon got a second opinion on the pain in his right elbow, MLB.com reports.
"We're still working through the process, trying to get with Dr. ElAttrache to confirm everything and finalize our plan of treatment," assistant general manager Kyle Stark said.
The first exam of Taillon's elbow revealed no structural damage, but the second opinion, which has yet to be released, has caused team officials to regroup before coming up with a plan of action.
|Jameson Taillon to seek second opinion Monday |

(3/27/14) Pirates pitcher Jameson Taillon will seek a second opinion Monday, according to Pirates Prospects.
Taillon has been dealing with some elbow issues, but his first exam revealed no structural damage. He's expected to shut everything down for at least two weeks, but that could change based on the news he receives Monday. Taillon is considered one of the team's best prospects. As long as the issue isn't serious, Taillon is expected to make his major-league debut this year.
|At long last, Jameson Taillon is poised to make his major-league debut this year. Just how long has it been since the Pirates took him second overall in the 2010 draft? Long enough that Drew Pomeranz, taken three picks later, has already been traded ... twice. Long enough that Matt Harvey, taken five picks later, has already started an All-Star game, placed in a Cy Young vote and had his elbow surgically repaired by Dr. James Andrews. Clearly, the Pirates have a lot riding on this guy. Fortunately, the scouting reports on Taillon haven't changed too much since he was drafted. His WHIP has always been kind of high, but that's partly because of the way the Pirates develop their pitchers, having them throw mostly fastballs early in games. His arsenal is top-notch, featuring a power curveball and plus changeup in addition to a mid-90s fastball. Of course, just because he's poised to reach the majors doesn't mean he absolutely will. The Pirates don't have an opening in their starting rotation as of yet, so if he gets hurt or bombs at Triple-A Indianapolis, well, he'll just have to keep waiting. It's why you shouldn't necessarily invest a draft pick in him in mixed leagues even though you'll want to pounce at the first sign of a promotion.
