New York Yankees SP Jameson Taillon Could Close Games in ALDS

NEW YORK — Yankees starter Jameson Taillon may not be in New York start rotation for the American League Division Series against the Cleveland Guardians, but manager Aaron Boone sees the right-hander playing a crucial role off the bullpen.

“I think Jamo could fit anywhere from meaningful innings in a given game, to a big pitch in a high-leverage late point, to finishing a game,” Boone said Sunday. “I really feel like he has the make-up to handle whatever we throw at him.”

You read that right. Boone sees Taillon as one of the many poor people who could end a ball game in Division Series and beyond.
