Jameson Taillon threw a bullpen today at Pirate City, pitching to Russell Martin. Taillon started from the windup, then moved to the stretch later in the session, and threw all of his pitches. The command on the curve looked spotty at times, but I generally don’t pass too much judgement on how a pitcher looks this early during Spring Training. If you missed it earlier, check out our video of Wandy Rodriguez throwing his bullpen from today.

  1. I’ve seen Taillon pitch in person in WV. For anyone close enough to go see him at a minor league park I recommend it for two reasons.
    1. You get a chance to see how dominant he really is beyond the numbers. IE: see how batters look frustrated and locked up.
    2. You get to be so close to the field (especially in WV) it’s a treat to see talent like him from ‘the front row’ for about the same money as the cheap seats in the ‘burgh.
    Can’t wait for Taillon to join Cole. What a treat we’ll all have for years.

  2. I know everyone talks about the velocity and curveball, but I was really impressed with the two seamer and change up. A few two seamers looked like swing and miss pitches that at the very least would jam a righty pretty badly. At least one change looked like a fastball that ended up in the dirt. Any access to radar? Didn’t look like much more than 92 but at least one fastball zoomed in there

  3. Crash Davis: You got a gift. When you were a baby, the Gods reached down and turned your right arm into a thunderbolt.

    Play Ball!
