Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • RHPPosition Projection

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.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
