Jameson Taillon did not make his anticipated return from Tommy John surgery in 2015, as he underwent hernia surgery in July. The former No. 2 overall pick had moved quickly through the Pirates' organization prior to his surgeries, but now with a two-year layoff, it's hard to know how he will fare when he returns to the mound. Look for Taillon to open the year in Triple-A, and if all goes well, make his major league debut later this season. There is enough uncertainty around Taillon that he doesn't need to be picked in redraft leagues on Draft Day.

Pirates starting pitcher prospect Jameson Taillon did not make his expected start Tuesday in the Gulf Coast League (Rookie) due to lower abdominal pain, the team announced.
