Pirates' Taillon expected to throw against live batters next month
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

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."
