Jameson Taillon Had Second Opinion; Now All Parties Quiet as Pirates Decide the Next Step

A few weeks ago I reported that Jameson Taillon had been shut down due to elbow discomfort. Last week I reported that Taillon was going to seek a second opinion this Monday. Taillon did go for the second opinion on Monday, but didn’t want to comment on the results today. I don’t want to speculate on the results of the second opinion.
