Taillon was able to continue to throw after suffering the cut. He is trying to recover from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in April 2014.
This was Taillon's first game action since undergoing Tommy John surgery during April 2014.
Tallion was considered the 29th-ranked prospect in the minors by Baseball America entering the 2015 season. A rehab assignment for Taillon is still unknown.
Taillon was ranked the 29th best prospect in the game by Baseball America coming into the 2015 season. It is not know at this time when Taillon will begin a rehab assignment, but he definitely is heading in the right direction. The team should have a better idea after his outing on Thursday.
"He continues to make progress every day," general manager Neal Huntington said on Sunday. "He has been facing hitters and now we look forward to him starting to face hitters in different colored uniforms. But we are working him a very slow, very conservative progression because of our belief in what it takes to get back from Tommy John surgery."
Taillon underwent the procedure in April of last year and has slowly made worked his way up to throwing. He has yet to play in a major league game for Pittsburgh.
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.”
