Bucs top prospect set to make debut
Right-hander Jameson Taillon, the Pirates 2010 first-round pick (2nd overall), will make his professional debut for the Low-A West Virginia Power on Wednesday.
Taillon will face the only guy that was picked ahead of him, Bryce Harper, as the Hagerstown Suns are in WV for a five game series (that kicked off on Monday).
Taillon has been throwing in extended spring training.
The 19-year-old is ranked the Pirates No. 1 prospect and 18th overall in MLB.com’s Top 50 prospects.
