Press box announcement: Jameson Taillon left the game with a reaggravation of his previous right ankle injury. #Yankees— Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) September 29, 2021
And that confirms it. Assuming the same timeframe for a return as he just tried to come back from, his season is over.
Jameson Taillon left tonight’s game in the third inning due to injury. I can’t help but wonder if Taillon aggravated the ankle tendon tear that sidelined him for most of September. It wasn’t clear what bothered Taillon from watching the broadcast, but I think it’s a reasonable assumption.
Needless to say, it’s a bummer to lose Taillon again so quickly. His stuff looked pretty crisp for a guy who hadn’t pitched since September 6th. There are still a bunch of hurdles for the Yankees to cross in order to get to the ALDS, but having a healthy Taillon would’ve made the pitching-rich Yankees even richer in a long series. Alas.
More to come.
