Pittsburgh Pirates Pitching Prospect, Jameson Taillon, Could Be The Next Big Fantasy Baseball Star

It is just a matter of time before Jameson Taillon finds himself standing on the mound in a Pittsburgh Pirates uniform. For those who aren’t familiar with Taillon, it is time to get familiar. He was drafted in the first round (second overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2010.

 

From 2011 to 2013, he shot up the organization and was on the fast track to a promotion to the big league team. Unfortunately, he was sidelined in 2014 after receiving Tommy John Surgery. Luckily for the Pirates, it looks like Taillon is back to his dominating ways since his recovery.

 

In 2016, he has thrown 49.1 innings, with a 1.82 ERA, 51 strikeouts, and only 5 walks in Triple-A. He is ready for the big leagues, it is just a matter of finding him a spot in the rotation for him. The Pirates’ rotation is currently filled by Gerrit Cole, Francisco Liriano, Jon Niese, Jeff Locke, and Juan Nicasio.

What To Expect From Minnesota Twins’ Right-Handed Pitcher, Jose Berrios

Jose Berrios was one of my favorite prospects heading into 2016. He is finally getting his shot at the big leagues after getting called up today to make a start over the next week with the Minnesota Twins. He hasn’t thrown since last Thursday, so he is fresh and ready to go whenever the Twins need him. He was called up because Ervin Santana and Tyler Duffey are both injured and Berrios could be needed to fill in for them. Also, starting pitchers, Kyle Gibson and Tommy Milone, have been pretty brutal since the start of 2016, so their rotation could use a jumpstart from Berrios. This is the perfect opportunity for Berrios to prove he belongs in the Twins’ rotation permanently. Now that he is in the big leagues, what can we expect from Jose Berrios?

Five Minor League Prospects Who Will Be Fantasy Baseball Stars In 2016 And Beyond

1. Lucas Giolito (RHP; 21 Years Old; Washington Nationals): Giolito is commonly known as the top pitching prospect in the minor leagues. After recovering from Tommy John surgery in 2012, he has done nothing but impress every baseball scout, fan, and especially the Washington Nationals organization. Since his surgery, he has thrown 261 innings, with a 2.58 ERA, 83 walks (2.9 per nine innings), and 288 strikeouts (9.9 per nine innings). While his numbers are great, his physical projection is what makes him an elite prospect. He stands 6’6 and weighs 255 pounds. His body-type projects for a hard fastball, a nasty slider, and an exciting future. He throws his fastball in the mid to high 90’s and compliments that with one of the most elite breaking balls in the minor leagues. Assuming he can stay healthy, he has the ability to be a top 10 pitcher at his prime. He should get a promotion to the big leagues in 2016, but the Nationals will limit his innings this year as his career high (in 2015) is only 117 innings. Before you know it, Giolito will be the household name in Washington, not Max Scherzer.
