He was getting swings and misses on low pitches that weren’t breaking – they looked like two-seamers from my seat, but IANAS (not a scout)…

Squirrel hitters — I just had to write that! — could do nothing with his curve ball. These were AA hitters he dominated, not low minor league hitters.

Taillon did throw too many high fastballs that looked like mistakes. He needs to continue his work on that problem. He’ll become even more efficient once he makes the necessary adjustments.
