The Pittsburgh Pirates activated Jameson Taillon from the disabled list this afternoon. They optioned infielder Phil Gosselin to Indianapolis to make room on the active roster. Taillon has been scheduled to start tonight’s game for the last few days, so this move was expected. The Pirates will go with a shorter bench for the time being, with an extra man in the bullpen.

Taillon’s last start for the Pirates was back on May 3rd, before treatment for testicular cancer landed him on the disabled list. He has made three rehab starts since being put on the DL, one in Altoona and the last two in Indianapolis. More on Taillon’s return later tonight.

This was Gosselin’s second stint with the Pirates. He went 1-for-8 in five games this time, giving him a .135/.158/.162 slash line in 24 games. with Pittsburgh this season.

  1. Sure as heck didn’t undesttand the Gosselin trade.

    Duncan got off to a tough start this season, but he has been turning it on as of late. Over the last 7 starts he’s carrying a 3.56 ERA, averaging 6 innings, and holding hitter to a .688 OPS…not mind-blowing numbers, but damned fine for the PCL.
