On Sunday, Pittsburgh Pirates' General Manager Neal Huntington spoke with the media, and gave a few updates on some of the injured prospects in the system.
**Luis Heredia is currently on the disabled list with right shoulder discomfort. He was pulled from a start over a week ago after throwing one pitch, then was placed on the DL two days later.
"We just worked through the inflammation in that shoulder and he’s making good progress so far," Huntington said on Heredia. "He’s not yet started a throwing program but is making good progress health-wise."
**Jameson Taillon underwent Tommy John surgery a few weeks ago, and is in the early stages of his rehab work. Taillon isn't expected back until early next season, and won't get a shot at the majors until the middle of next year.
