Pirates' Jameson Taillon: Beats Cubs, finishes 2016 strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taillon limited the Cubs to one run on one hit and three walks in six innings Wednesday. He struck out four.

The rookie ended his campaign on a high note, allowing only a first-row homer to Anthony Rizzo. The right-hander emerged as the team's ace, compiling a 3.38 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 104 innings. Including minor league action, he totaled 165.2 innings after missing the two previous seasons. The workload didn't slow Taillon down and he's put himself in position for an even greater role in 2017.

Pirates' Jameson Taillon: Strikes out seven in five-inning stint Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Taillon didn't factor into the decision versus the Nationals on Friday, but recorded seven strikeouts and gave up three earned runs on six hits over five innings.

The rookie exhibited sharp control in notching first-pitch strikes on 16 of the 22 batters he faced and not issuing a free pass for the second time in his last four starts. Taillon's pitch count has been closely monitored as the season has wound down, as he hasn't pitched past the fifth inning in any of his last three trips to the mound. He's enjoyed a solid rookie campaign overall, with a 4-4 record and 3.49 ERA that he'll try to improve on when he takes on the Cubs next Wednesday in his final start of 2016.

Pirates' Jameson Taillon: Gets win in five-inning start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Taillon (4-4) gave up three earned runs on nine hits and a walk over five innings in Saturday's 10-4 victory over the Reds in the opening game of a doubleheader. He struck out two and even helped his own cause with an RBI single in three at-bats as well.

The rookie gave up his first homer in his last three starts, a 406-foot three-run shot by Adam Duvall in the third. It was Taillon's first victory since Aug. 11 versus the Padres, and his second straight five-inning stint. Taillon was pulled after only 79 pitches and will go for his fifth victory when he takes on the Nationals next Friday.

Pirates' Jameson Taillon: Next start will come Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Taillon will start game one of Saturday's doubleheader against the Reds, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Taillon had his previous start skipped in order to let Gerrit Cole (elbow) back into the rotation, but with Cole being shut down for the season, the rookie will get back to starting. He pitched well in his last outing against Cincinnati, holding the Reds to one run over six innings while striking out six, so he could be a decent option over the weekend.

Pirates' Jameson Taillon: Set to have next start skipped
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taillon will have his next start skipped, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Taillon has been one of Pittsburgh's better starters since being called up in June, but it seems that the Pirates want to be cautious with the young hurler as the season winds down. The right-hander is currently sitting at 149.2 innings on the season between the majors and minor leagues, and since Gerrit Cole (elbow) is slated to return from the disabled list Monday, this ended up being the time to give Taillon a break. It's unclear if this is the only start the 24-year-old will miss or if he'll be kept out for a few more, but that should become clearer as the month rolls along.
