Player Notes
Jameson Taillon was placed in the concussion protocol after taking a line drive to his head on Tuesday.

Advice: Taillon -- who had just returned from the disabled list on Tuesday -- was hit in the head by a liner off the bat of Hernan Perez in the second inning. The ball came off Perez's bat at 105 mph. He shook the liner off and went on to toss six innings of one-run ball. Taillon said that he woke up feeling good on Wednesday morning, a positive sign. His status for a scheduled Sunday showdown with the Phillies remains cloudy.

Jameson Taillon threw six innings of one-run ball against the Brewers in his return from the disabled list Tuesday.

Advice: Taillon gave up five hits without walking a batter, needing just 65 pitches to get through his six innings. His toughest test, in fact, was overcoming a line drive that glanced off his head in the second inning. He stayed in the game and pitched well but didn't get a win for his efforts. Taillon will carry a 2-1 record, 3.44 ERA and 1.18 WHIP into Sunday's start against the Phillies.

Tue, Jul 19 Rotoworld
Pirates activated RHP Jameson Taillon from the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: Taillon hit the disabled list at the start of July with right shoulder fatigue, but he'll make his return Tuesday against the Brewers. The rookie right-hander owns a 3.86 ERA and 21/5 K/BB ratio in 28 innings through his first five starts in the majors.Daily Slant: Jameson Taillon has been held to under 100 pitches in each of his five starts and it's very likely that continues tonight, but did get to 95 pitches last time out with his highest SwStr rate (8.4%). That’s still below average and doesn’t match up with his 18.8 K% so far, but he did miss bats at an above average rate in the minors and hasn’t walked many with a ground ball rate a bit above 50% so far. The kicker here is a great spot against a MIL offense with a 26.2 K% vs RHP in a park that should punish their moderate power.

Jameson Taillon (shoulder) is slated to rejoin the Pirates' rotation on Tuesday against the Brewers.

Advice: Taillon has been held out of action for all of July with right shoulder fatigue, but he's evidently ready to go now. The young hurler has put up a 3.86 ERA and 21/5 K/BB ratio over 28 innings across five starts for the Pirates.
