Jameson Taillon threw 61 pitches over four innings without issue in another rehab appearance in extended spring training Saturday, the organization announced Sunday. Taillon continues his recovery from Tommy John surgery last April.
General manager Neal Huntington said everything went well with Taillon’s outing and indicated the rehab process is going well overall.
“He feels great,” Huntington said. “He’d love nothing more than for us to ramp it up but yet he understands this is a long-term process and a long-term vision with him.”
Taillon, the No. 2 overall pick behind Bryce Harper in the 2010 draft, is yet to pitch in a live game this season. That may not be far away for too much longer, though.
“He’s getting closer to pitching under the lights,” Huntington said.
