Jameson Taillon scratched, Chad Kuhl to start versus Cubs

Jameson Taillon will not start Sunday in Chicago due to flu-like symptoms. Chad Kuhl will go in Taillon’s place.

It appears Taillon was warming up before the game, so this does not appear to be something that will affect him after the All-Star break. Of course, this is a lot better news than, say, an arm injury.

Kuhl will pitch on just two days rest, having gone seven innings in Philadelphia on Sunday, so it’s safe to assume this will be a very bullpen-heavy game for the Pirates.
