Jameson Taillon is the latest big-name prospect to get a late-season promotion, as the Pirates announced that the second overall pick in the 2010 draft is headed to Double-A.
Taillon’s overall numbers at high Single-A weren’t great, with a 3.82 ERA and just 98 strikeouts in 125 innings, but the right-hander has been excellent there of late and Baseball America recently named his as the top pitching prospect in the entire Florida State League.
And now he’s reached Double-A two months before his 21st birthday.
