Looking at the Pirates Pitching Depth With Jameson Taillon Out For the Year

They had a lot of injuries, but it seemed like every time they had an injury come up, they had a Major League ready pitcher to step into the rotation and take over. One of the biggest boosts last year was Gerrit Cole, who was pitching like an ace by the end of the year. The hope was that Jameson Taillon would arrive by mid-season 2014 and do the same...
