I figured I'd start a new minor league thread, since tonight features a game all of us will want to keep an eye on. Jameson Taillon makes his first professional appearance for West Virginia tonight against Bryce Harper and Hagerstown. First pitch is at 7:05, although it hasn't been announced whether Taillon will be starting. Either way, I'm guessing we won't see more than three or four innings from him. Once again Tim Williams of Pirates Prospects will be live tweeting the proceedings from Charleston. Also, I don't want to look too far ahead, but Appalachian Power Park will host none other than Dennis Haskins, aka Mr. Belding later in the week, because why wouldn't they.
Elsewhere, Brad Lincoln starts for Indy in a matinee against Norfolk at 1:00. Altoona is in Harrisburg tonight at 7:00, with Jared Hughes taking the hill for the Curve, and Bradenton takes on St. Lucie at 7:05. The starting pitcher is listed as TBD, but based on their rotation it should be Kyle McPherson, who is off to an excellent start, with a 1.14 ERA and a 22:0 K/BB ratio in 23.2 IP.
