Elbow strain forces Pirates to shut down Taillon for 4 weeks

Elbow strain forces Pirates to shut down Taillon for 4 weeks Pittsburgh Pirates ace Jameson Taillon will be shut down for at least a month because of a strained right elbow. The team placed Taillon on the 10-day injured list after he complained of lingering pain following a victory over Texas. Taillon is 2-3 with a 4.10 ERA in seven starts. Taillon is the second Pittsburgh starter to hit the injured list in the past week. Chris Archer is dealing with inflammation in his right thumb. The Pirates called up reliever Tyler Lyons on Saturday. Lyons went 1-0 with a 3.18 ERA and 12 strikeouts in 10 relief appearances with Triple-A Indianapolis.

Veteran outfielder JB Shuck is about to begin a new journey in his MLB career. His overall success or lack thereof after seven major league seasons has left him in an essentially ineffective position. So what do the Pirates do? Change the position.

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced that they will attempt to make Shuck a two-way player. Will it work? Only time will tell. But he has some work to do first.

The Pirates director of player development announced that Shuck will be working on his pitching skills at Triple-A Indianapolis. There he will also have to make ten more appearances with at least three plate appearances as a position player and play 20 innings as a pitcher to become eligible for the two-way designation for next season.

Shuck is not opposed to the job either, especially if it means more for his career. He also hopes that with the possible success of this experiment, two-way players will become more of a trend in the major league.

The Pirates' goal is not to leave him in the minors, but to make him a useful two-way player for the Pirates further down the line.

The good thing is that the position won't be completely new for Shuck since he has experience on the bump in high school and college. Hopefully some of those old experiences will kick in and help him adjust quickly.
