Pirates prospect Jameson Taillon getting closer to pitching in games
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) The Pirates have no timetable for starting pitcher prospect Jameson Taillon, who is coming off Tommy John surgery in 2014, to begin pitching in games, manager Neal Huntington said Sunday.
Although, it does appear he is getting closer to game action.
“He's continuing to make progress and continuing to check box after box," Huntington said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "Looking forward to getting him against an opposition uniform here sooner than later.”

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.
