Jameson Taillon 'super excited' to come to Yankees, calls Gerrit Cole 'one of my absolute best friends'


The Yankees made it official early Sunday afternoon: RHP Jameson Taillon is on his way to the Bronx in exchange for a package of four prospects.

Taillon took to Twitter for an initial reaction to the deal:

He did apparently make one quick comment, though, according to Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic:

Taillon also had this to say about former, and once again, teammate Gerrit Cole:

Also, according to Biertempfel, Pirates GM Ben Cherington said that RHP Miguel Yajure, the only one of the four prospects Pittsburgh acquired that has MLB experience, “certainly will be in big league camp as a starter with a chance to contribute at some point in 2021.”
