Jameson Taillon exits tonight’s game due to apparent injury

Update, 9:23pm:

And that confirms it. Assuming the same timeframe for a return as he just tried to come back from, his season is over.

Original post:

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.

    Shame to lose him, Derek, but you never take yourself out of the ballgame. Never never never. You make your manager drag you off that mound. I didn’t like him signaling to the dugout to come get him after he just threw a perfect strike. Curt Schilling never asked to come out of the game with a bloody stump for an ankle and Tallion shouldn’t have either.
