Jameson Taillon Undergoes Successful Tommy John Surgery

According to Jonathan Mayo, Jameson Taillon underwent successful Tommy John surgery yesterday.

Over the weekend it was announced that Taillon would undergo surgery. The typical recovery time is a year, which would put Taillon on pace to return at the start of next season. That should put him on track to be in the majors by mid-season 2015.

      Also, something guys go into surgery for a flexor tendon repair, and they get look at the UCL and decide it needs reconstructed. This happen to Hanrahan.

    Nice. The Bucs got what they really want. His arbitration clock won’t start ticking until June of 2015!

      With the best possible rehab, he will not even resume pitching until possibly ST 2015 and then a few months in the minors, meaning 2015 will be a partial season, and his years of MLB Service will not begin until the 2016 season. At this point we have to hope for a successful rehab.
