    The cavalry is coming. Jameson Taillon is going to be called up tomorrow to make his major league debut.

    The Pirates will call up prospect right-hander Jameson Taillon to make his major league debut Wednesday against the Mets.
    The Pirates had a rainout on Monday and are playing a doubleheader on Tuesday, so they were in need of an extra starter for this week. It's unclear what the plans are beyond Wednesday, but there's opportunity in this rotation right now. After missing two full seasons due to injury, the 24-year-old has compiled a 2.04 ERA and 61/6 K/BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings over 10 starts in Triple-A this season. He's worth adding in most mixed formats on the chance that he sticks around.

    The Pirates will call up Wilfredo Boscan to serve as the 26th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets.
    He'll be eligible to pitch in the second game. Boscan owns a 2.92 ERA and 6/5 K/BB ratio over 12 1/3 innings with the Pirates this season.

    David Freese (hand) is back in the Pirates' starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets.
    This will be his first time in the lineup since he was hit in the right hand by a pitch last Thursday. He was able to take soft toss and batting practice on Monday, but wasn't in the lineup before the game was ultimately postponed due to rain.

    Partch down and Taillon up. Bullpen now has only 6 arms and I question if Feliz and Melancon will be available. A lot of pressure of Jameson tonight.

    Taillon has been optioned back to AAA and Kyle Lobstein has been recalled to take his place. This move is purely about getting a fresh arm for the pen as they have been tasked with pitching 10 innings over the last two days.

    Tonight is the weird makeup game in Colorado before the Pirates fly back to Pittsburgh to continue the home stand.

    Things have certainly taken a turn for the worse lately. Trying to avoid the sweep today.
