  • Cubs' Jameson Taillon: Looks good Saturday

    Taillon tossed three scoreless innings in Saturday's Cactus League game against the Angels. He allowed one hit and struck out four. This was an improvement from Taillon's spring debut, when he allowed two runs on three hits across 1.2 innings of work. The Cactus League stats aren't particularly important for the righty, as he should be locked in as the Cubs' No. 2 starter after signing a four-year, $68 million contract in the offseason. Taillon will just want to get himself ready for the regular season, where he'll look to follow up the strong 3.91 ERA and 1.13 WHIP he posted across 177.1 innings with the Yankees in 2022.

  • Cubs' Jameson Taillon: Tweaks slider in offseason

    Taillon changed the grip on his slider over the offseason, making the pitch more of a "sweeper," Jordan Bastian of reports. Last season, Taillon used his slider just under 19 percent of the time, making it his second-most popular pitch behind the fastball. The righty also mixed in a curve, a cutter, a sinker and a changeup, giving him a fairly deep arsenal. The Cubs liked what they saw, inking Taillon to a four-year, $68 million contract back in December. He figures to slot in as the No. 2 pitcher behind Marcus Stroman once the regular season gets underway.

  • Cubs' Jameson Taillon: Inks $68 million deal with Cubs

    Taillon agreed to a four-year, $68 million contract with the Cubs on Tuesday, Jesse Rogers of reports. Taillon tied a career-high with 32 starts and covered 177.1 innings for the Yankees in 2022, and he'll now return to the NL Central and continue his career in Chicago. The 31-year-old had a 3.91 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 151:32 K:BB last season and should slot in behind Marcus Stroman in the Cubs' rotation.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Doesn't factor in Game 1 decision

    Taillon did not factor in the decision during Game 1 of the ALCS after 4.1 innings of work, allowing one run on four hits and three walks in the 4-2 loss to the Astros. Taillon delivered a solid performance against the tough Astros lineup, but he was tagged for a two-out RBI double by Martin Maldonado in the bottom of the second to tie the game, 1-1. The 30-year-old righty fared much better than his relief performance in Game 2 of the ALDS, when he allowed two runs on three hits against the Guardians without recording an out; however, the lack of strikeouts is alarming for Taillon. He tallied 151 K's over 177.1 innings in the regular season but has yet to record a strikeout spanning 23 batters in the postseason.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Starting Game 1 of ALCS

    Taillon will start Game 1 of the ALCS against the Astros on Wednesday, Bryan Hoch of reports. Taillon was originally scheduled to start Game 5 of the ALDS, though after it was postponed by one day due to rain the Yankees instead opted to start Nestor Cortes. Taillon appeared out of the bullpen in Game 2 against the Guardians on Oct. 14, so he'll be on regular rest despite throwing only 18 pitches in his lone postseason appearance.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Not starting rescheduled game

    Taillon is no longer scheduled to start Game 5 of the NLDS against the Guardians after it was moved to Tuesday due to rain, but he'll start Game 1 of the NLCS should the Yankees advance, Bryan Hoch of reports. Taillon had been expected to start Game 5 on Monday, but the delay allows the Yankees to turn to Nestor Cortes instead. Taillon will face a much tougher test in the loaded Astros lineup should the Yankees manage to beat the Guardians on Tuesday.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: ALDS start postponed

    Taillon won't start Monday's Game 5 against Cleveland, as the game has been postponed due to rain. Taillon was slated to make his first start of the 2022 postseason, but with Game 5 now pushed to Tuesday, the Yankees may elect to roll with Nestor Cortes on three days of rest. Taillon would still be available to pitch out of the bullpen if called upon.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Moves to bullpen for ALDS

    Manager Aaron Boone said Taillon will be a relief option in the ALDS against Cleveland, Bryan Hoch of reports. Scheduled off-days will allow the Yankees to use a three-man rotation on normal rest through Game 4 of the divisional series. Given the team's lack of bullpen depth, Taillon could be a prime candidate for middle-innings work, especially if any of the three starters fails to pitch deep into his game. The righty, who posted a 3.91 ERA and 151:32 K:BB in 177.1 innings this season, has never appeared out of the bullpen in six years of MLB action.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: No-decision in final start

    Taillon didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rangers, giving up four runs on seven hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out five. The 30-year-old exited the game after 97 pitches (62 strikes) and in line for his sixth loss, but the Yankees rallied to get him off the hook. Taillon posted a 3.68 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 34:8 K:BB through 36.2 innings in September/October, giving him plenty of momentum headed into the playoffs.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Sharp in 14th win

    Taillon (14-5) picked up the win in Tuesday's 5-2 victory over the Blue Jays, giving up two runs on seven hits over 7.1 innings. He struck out six without walking a batter. George Springer led off the game for the Jays with a solo shot, but Taillon buckled down after that and didn't even allow a runner to get into scoring position until the sixth inning. He fired 62 of 94 pitches for strikes en route to his second straight quality start and his seventh in 12 outings since the All-Star break, a stretch during which he sports a 3.69 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 62:15 K:BB through 68.1 innings.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Eight strikeouts against rival

    Taillon did not factor into the decision Thursday, not allowing a run on four hits and a walk over six innings in a 5-4 victory over Boston. He struck out eight. Taillon allowed two doubles, one from Tommy Pham and the other off the bat of Yu Chang. The righty has allowed one homer or more in eight of his last 10 starts with a 4.25 ERA during that span. Despite Yankee Stadium's short porch, the 30-year-old has had more success at home, recording a 3.47 ERA over 90.2 innings as opposed to a 4.42 ERA over 73.1 innings on the road.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Gives up four runs in loss

    Taillon (13-5) gave up four earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four batters over five innings to take the loss in a 4-1 defeat against the Brewers on Saturday. Taillon gave up a three-run home run to Willy Adames en route to his fifth loss of the campaign. He threw 61 of his 94 pitches for strikes in the contest and otherwise did a decent job limiting the Brewers lineup. Taillon has an ERA of 4.67 in three September starts. He is tentatively expected to take the bump next against the Red Sox.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Strikes out eight in win

    Taillon (13-4) earned the win Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk over 7.1 innings in a 10-3 victory over the Rays. He struck out eight. The Yankees scored six runs in the first inning, affording Taillon a fair amount of wiggle room. He didn't need much, however, as Taillon was mostly excellent until he put two of the first three batters aboard in the eighth inning, both of which came around to score after his exit. Taillon does not typically pack the swing-and-miss punch of a frontline fantasy starter, but he leads the Yankees in wins and his 1.13 WHIP ranks 10th in the American League among qualified starters.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Takes no-decision Monday

    Taillon did not factor in the decision against Minnesota on Monday, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three batters. Taillon departed his previous start early as a result of taking a line drive to his right forearm, but he didn't need to miss a turn in the rotation. The right-hander threw 83 strikes Monday and allowed just one extra-base hit, but that was a two-run homer by Gary Sanchez in the fifth inning that tied the score. Taillon has given up at least one homer in each of his six starts since Aug. 8, but he hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of those outings. He's posted a 3.94 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 22:5 K:BB over 32 innings during that stretch.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: In clear to start Monday

    Taillon (forearm) is scheduled to start Monday's game against the Twins at Yankee Stadium, Bryan Hoch of reports. As expected, Taillon came out of his bullpen session over the weekend without issue and will make his 27th start of the season after exiting his previous outing against the Angels on Aug. 30, when he was struck in the forearm by a line drive. Through his eight starts since the All-Star break, Taillon has submitted a 4.24 ERA and 1.12 WHIP while striking out 35 over 40.1 innings.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Bullpen session Saturday

    Taillon (forearm) will throw a bullpen session Saturday and is still expected to pitch in his next scheduled start, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports. Taillon was diagnosed with a right forearm contusion after being hit by a line drive during Tuesday's win over the Angels. The injury never seemed to be considered serious, and the fact that he could avoid missing a start is a good sign for a Yankees pitching staff that has been plagued with injuries all year.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Exits early Tuesday

    Taillon was removed from Tuesday's game against the Angels and was diagnosed with a right forearm contusion after having X-rays come back negative. Taillon was struck in the forearm by a line drive and was lifted after giving up two runs over two innings to the Halos. The 30-year-old appeared to have avoided a serious injury and should be considered day-to-day, and it's unclear if the injury will affect his availability for the next turn through the rotation Monday or Tuesday against the Twins.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Records quality start Thursday

    Taillon (12-4) earned the win over Oakland on Thursday, pitching six innings and allowing one run on six hits and no walks while striking out two batters. Taillon induced a modest seven swinging strikes, but he didn't need his swing-and-miss stuff to tame the Athletics' offense. The veteran right-hander was staked to a 10-run lead through four frames and cruised to an easy win, allowing his only run on a Shea Langeliers solo homer in the sixth. Taillon is tied for eighth in the majors with 12 victories on the season despite a middle-of-the-road 3.89 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 7.5 K/9.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Gets no help against Jays

    Taillon (11-4) took the loss Friday as the Yankees were downed 4-0 by the Blue Jays, giving up three runs on six hits over five innings. He struck out five without walking a batter. The right-hander didn't pitch too badly aside from grooving a first-pitch fastball to Teoscar Hernandez in the fourth inning that wound up traveling 421 feet to nearly straightaway center field, but the New York offense managed only four singles all night and never got a runner past second base, so Taillon had no margin for error. In six starts since the All-Star break, he's posted a 4.45 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 31:12 K:BB through 32.1 innings, with the ERA being fueled by a 1.7 HR/9.

  • Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Suffers loss in quality start

    Taillon (11-3) took the loss Sunday, allowing three runs on six hits and zero walks over seven innings against the Red Sox. He struck out four. Taillon got off to a rocky start as Tommy Pham led off the game with a double to deep center and later came around to score. The only other damage came from a two-run home run off the bat of Rafael Devers in the sixth. The Yankees' starter was outdueled by Michael Wacha on the night, but it was promising that Taillon did not walk a batter for the first time since July 16. He will look to get back in the win column in his next start, which is slated to be against the Blue Jays this week.
