Pirates Farm Report: Taillon Surviving In Class-A

Jul 14, 2011 12:40 PM EST

Pirates right-handed pitching prospect Jameson Taillon is pitching respectably for Class-A West Virginia.

Taillon, the second overall pick in last year's First-Year Player Draft, has made 13 starts for the Power in 2011.

In his first professional season, he is 2-2 with a 3.66 ERA in 13 starts and 51 2/3 innings pitched. Taillon has 49 strikeouts and just eight walks and has allowed 51 hits.

Opposing hitters are raking at a .256 clip against the right-hander.

His most recent start, against Hagerstown on July 9, was his worst. He surrendered seven runs and didn't finish the third inning, giving him a 23.14 ERA for the appearance.
