Pirates' Jameson Taillon: Takes loss against Cubs

Taillon (3-2) allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out four batters through five innings during Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

Chicago got it rolling at the dish, and Taillon didn't have an answer. It was just his second start since missing over a month of action, so a mediocre outing against a capable lineup isn't a cause for concern at this point. Taillon owns a rock-solid 3.38 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 7.5 K/9 through 26 career starts and projects to remain a middle-of-the-rotation fantasy option this season. A road date with the Cardinals at Busch Stadium is up next for the 25-year-old righty.
