Jameson Taillon @JTaillon19
Taillon is just 25 years old, and Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette noted the recovery timeline is unclear for the time being.
The right-hander has made six starts this season and sports a 3.31 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. Pittsburgh selected Josh Lindblom's contract from AAA when it placed Taillon on the disabled list.
