08/06/2009 - Under Armour All-America Game 2009 The top arm in the 2010 class, Taillon is a big, strong RHP with an intimidating presence. He combines mid 90s velocity with a hard breaking curveball that is his out pitch. Being from Texas, his body and stuff have garnered Roger Clemens comparisons. He attended an Under Armour National Tryout in Irving, TX and subsequently pitched for the Baseball Factory in the Arizona Sophomore Fall Classic in Peoria. He has committed to Rice. Taillon was an MVP of the Under Armour All-America Game and has already touched 100mph this spring. Taillon was the 2nd overall pick in the 2010 MLB Draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates from The Woodlands High School in The Woodlands, TX. Made his major league debut on June 8, 2016 and is currently in the starting rotation for the Pirates.
