Taillon addressed the media about his impending return prior to the Pirates' game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday, via Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
On May 6, the Pirates announced they had placed the right-hander on the 10-day disabled list (retroactive to May 4) because of groin discomfort. Berry reported Taillon's pathology report came back positive for testicular cancer after he underwent surgery.
The 25-year-old's last start prior to going on the DL came on May 3. He's 2-1 with a 3.31 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 35.1 innings this season.
