Pittsburgh Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Monday, Feb. 10, that the team plans to look at SP Jameson Taillon more during the spring. He was among the team's first cuts last spring. However, the GM warned that Taillon "still has work to do."
Fantasy Tip: Taillon is likely to head up the rotation with Triple-A Indianapolis. Fantasy owners in long-term keeper leagues obviously know who he is, and he is a highly coveted option.

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon will be promoted to Triple-A Indianapolis Monday, Aug. 5.
Fantasy Tip: Taillon is one of the organization's top pitching prospects now that Gerrit Cole is in the big leagues. Taillon could be a September call-up, but don't bank on it. Taillon should be firmly planted on a roster in dynasty leagues, and he should become an option for mixed league owners next season.

Pittsburgh Pirates SPs Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon will be in major league camp during spring training, but the team has vowed to not rush the pitching prospects, even if they get off to a strong start in camp.
Fantasy Tip: Cole and Taillon are two of the brightest pitching prospects in the game, but right now their fantasy appeal is strictly limited to long-term keeper formats. An appearance in the majors in 2013 wouldn't be out of the question, but they aren't worth a roster spot in re-draft leagues just yet.
