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.

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.

Jameson Taillon (elbow) likely to miss start of season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates starting pitcher prospect Jameson Taillon has been shut down with a sore elbow and likely won't be ready for the start of the season at Triple-A Indianapolis, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Taillon awoke with pain in his elbow Thursday following a minor-league game Wednesday. He was examined by a team doctor and a MRI exam showed no ligament damage. Taillon will seek a second opinion this week.

"At this point in time, the ligament is intact," general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday. "He's just got some discomfort in there. How quickly will it work itself out? We'll have a much clearer picture when he gets back from his second opinion. At this point, we feel positive he's just going to miss a little bit of time."
