Taillon told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Jerry DiPaola he'd let his teammates urinate on his throwing hand if it expedited the healing process.
"I said if it helps, I'll put a sign-up sheet and everyone can come and pee," he said. "I don't care. I just want it to go away."
Taillon later tweeted the comment was made largely in jest:
Taillon wouldn't be the first to try to use human urine for an added benefit. Former big leaguers Jorge Posada and Moises Alou admitted to urinating on their hands to give them a better grip on the bat and potentially prevent calluses.
