"It's never fun (to be cut), but I've got to go down and get innings," Taillon said. "It was fun to get some innings here. But, the reality of it is I've got to get built up and there's not enough innings to go around."
Taillon pitched a total of 2 2-3 innings in two Grapefruit League games. He had a 3.38 ERA, and allowed four hits and one walk. A blister on one of the fingers of his pitching hand kept him from making another appearance before being sent to the minors.
