There appears to be no end to the bad breaks for the New York Yankees. Today the Yankees put starting pitcher Jameson Taillon on the 10 day IL due to a right ankle injury as reported by YES Network commentator/reporter Meredith Marakovits and CBS Sports.
This is the second bad starting pitching news for the Yankees this week. First, Gerrit Cole removed himself from a game against the Blue Jays when he felt left hamstring tightness. No MRI has been scheduled as of today for Cole. So his next start is in question.
After a slow start of the season, Taillon has turned out to be one of the Yankees’ most reliable starters. He is 8-6 with an ERA of 4.41. The Yankees have won 8 of his last 10 starts. This is quite unexpected as his last start against the Blue Jays was a quality one. It may have to do with a dive he made in the game.
