Jameson Taillon News
New York Yankees starting pitcher Jameson Taillon left Tuesday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays prematurely with an apparent injury, according to Pete Caldera of USA Today. He pitched just 2.1 innings and gave up one run on one hit while walking one and striking out two. The Yankees activated Taillon the day prior after he recovered from an ankle injury. Taillon has a 4.41 ERA, 23.4 K%, and 1.22 WHIP over 138.2 IP and 27 starts. There's no word on what the injury is or how serious it may be, but fantasy managers should stay tuned for more information.
The New York Yankees activated starting pitcher Jameson Taillon (ankle) from the 10-day injured list on Sunday. Fellow pitcher Albert Abreu was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move. Taillon is set to start Tuesday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays. The 29-year-old right-hander has been out since September 6 after partially tearing a tendon in his right ankle. He's had a bit of a rough first season with the Yankees. Over 27 starts, he's gone 8-6 with a 4.41 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. He's a risky start in DFS or for championship week in season-long formats against a tough Blue Jays offense.
New York Yankees starting pitcher Jameson Taillon (ankle) is set to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday. The 29-year-old right-hander has been sidelined since early September due to a partially-torn tendon in his right ankle. If all goes well with his rehab start on Wednesday, we could see him back in the Yankees rotation at some point next week. Taillon has had an uneven first year with the Pinstripes. Over 27 starts, he's gone 8-6 with a 4.41 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. He can be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues at this point.
Jameson Taillon had his second Tommy John surgery in 2019 after making just seven starts for the Pirates in 2019. In those seven starts, Taillon posted a 4.10 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and a 30:8 K:BB in 37 1/3 innings pitched. Since arriving in the majors in 2016, Taillon's issue has been his ability to stay on the mound. Otherwise, excluding the small 2019 sample size, Taillon has consistently proven to be a reliable starting pitcher with excellent control who has limited damage against him. From 2016-2018, Taillon posted elite walk, overall barrel, and curveball spin rates, to go with a fastball velocity well above league averages. His career 50% ground ball rate and resulting career 0.93 HR/9 IP rate have supported his career 3.67 ERA and 3.55 FIP. Heading into 2021, Taillon presents questions including durability, ability to replicate prior success, and the impact of his move to New York. Though he has not, essentially, pitched since 2018, reports indicate that the 29-year-old has been throwing the ball well. While he moves to a more difficult pitcher's park and A.L. East division, the adverse impact on his fantasy value may be offset by the opportunity to accumulate many more wins in the Bronx and his ability to avoid the long ball. If Taillon proves healthy, he is a potential steal around the 20th round. He can provide managers with precious innings, a sub-4.00 ERA, a sub-1.25 WHIP, wins, and a decent number of strikeouts. Though managers shouldn't reach for him, despite his move to the Yankees, he remains worth the risk if he can be rostered at his current ADP of 237.
