Taillon (3-1) earned the win Wednesday against the Blue Jays after allowing two runs on six hits with four strikeouts and one walk across 5.1 innings. The right-hander allowed a run on a single, a walk and a hit by pitch during the first inning, but he then settled down before Toronto scratched across another run in the fifth. Taillon has won three of his past four starts and has a 2.57 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 17:2 K:BB over 21 frames during that span. He lines up to pitch in Baltimore early next week.
Taillon (2-1) picked up the win in Tuesday's 9-1 victory over the Blue Jays, allowing one run on five hits over six innings. He struck out four without walking a batter. The right-hander was locked in a pitchers' duel with Alek Manoah through six frames, but Taillon got rewarded for his efforts when the Yankees broke through against the Toronto bullpen in the top of the seventh. The quality start was his first of the season, and he'll take a 2.84 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 21:2 K:BB through 25.1 innings into his next outing.
Taillon allowed two earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four across 4.2 innings Thursday against Baltimore. He did not factor into the decision. Taillon surrendered a run in both the second and third innings, but his primary problem was his inefficiency. He needed 83 pitches to record 14 outs while scattering seven hits -- including two doubles. On the positive side, Taillon continued to show strong control, as he's walked only two batters across 17.1 innings to begin the campaign. He's also maintained a solid 3.26 ERA across 19.1 frames, but he has now worked either 4.2 or five innings in all four of his starts.
Taillon (1-1) allowed one run on seven hits across five innings Friday, striking out five and earning a win over the Guardians. Taillon spread seven hits over five innings but the only real damage against him was Franmil Reyes' solo shot in the fourth. The 6-foot-5 righty has given up a homer in each of his first three starts this season but he lowered his ERA to 3.07 through 14.2 frames. He'll carry a 13:1 K:BB into next week's projected home outing against the Orioles.
Taillon pitched 4.2 innings against Baltimore on Saturday, allowing two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two. He did not factor in the decision. The Yankees jumped out to a 4-2 lead in the top of the fifth inning, giving Taillon a chance to qualify for the win by completing the bottom of the frame. There had already been a rain delay that interrupted the contest, however, and manager Aaron Boone chose to pull the right-hander with two outs in the fifth after he allowed a single and a walk in the inning. Taillon has allowed exactly two runs in each of his first two starts, though he has yet to notch a victory. He'll try to change that in his next outing, which lines up to come at home against Cleveland late next week.
