The Pirates announced Saturday RHP Jameson Taillon is heading to the 10 day injury list with a right elbow flexor strain.
Taillon is the latest Pirate to be sidelined with injury this season, joining fellow starter Chris Archer. He will be shut down for the next four weeks, but his surgically repaired UCL is in tact, according to The Athletic’s Rob Biertempfel.
The Pirates will select the contract of LHP Tyler Lyons to take his spot on the roster. They will announce a corresponding 40 man roster move before the game.
Additionally, infielder Kevin Newman has been taken off the injury list, and Pablo Reyes has been optioned to AAA.
