Bucs Open Instructional League

Stetson Allie & Jameson Taillon

The Pirates released a roster of 95 players participating in the five-team Florida Instructional League, and it included all of the top prospects at lower levels.

Recently signed elite pitchers Jameson Taillon, Luis Heredia and Stetson Allie will do their first pitching there. Reporting date is Sunday September 18 in Bradenton, Fla., and the 12-game schedule spans Sept. 27-Oct. 22.

Taillon isn't certain when he will make his FIL debut. He's sure of this much the assignment won't come soon enough.

Other teams participating in the Florida Instructional League are: Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies and the Toronto Blue Jays.

Here is the Pirates Florida Instructional League Roster:
