However, he does not have the mid-90′s fastball – he just knows how to pitch and get positive results with what he has. I truly hope that every pitcher turns out like Cole and Taillon, but somewhere along the line I think we have to understand that the whole Rotation may not have to be overpowering throwers.

Cory Giger tweeted that Brandon Cumpton will go on Thursday. Jameson Taillon is pitching the home opener in Altoona on the 11th, so that would put him pitching on Saturday.

And is it safe to assume Taillon will pitch Thursday and Pimentel Friday?
