    How is Taillon doing this camp?  Not much has been said about him

      I spoke to Taillon on Monday while I was down there.  His fastball is mid 90′s and his curve is dominant.  He said he’s working a lot on his changeup.  In camp he’s pretty much doing what is expected of him, which leads to not a lot of discussion about him, I guess.

        Thanks for the update.  I guess they are just going through their motions and getting ready to go…
