MINNEAPOLIS — Jameson Tellon is one of the favorite pitchers in Major League Baseball that appears to be dwindling. If not eliminated, foreign substances are allowed.
“I’m really excited for it,” the right-hander said Thursday ahead of the Yankees’ 7-5 loss to the Twins at Target Field. “I think it will help a talented team … I know it sounds crazy. But removing the sticky stuff will really help us move forward.”
Taillon said he was confident his teammates wouldn’t rely on Spider Tack or any other substance pitchers have resorted to in recent years. This was despite the allegations of players like Josh Donaldson from Minnesota calling Gerrit Cole after his turn rate dropped as they approached. The repression was imminent.
When asked if he thinks it̵7;s similar to trying to get steroids and other PEDs out of the game, Taillon said, “I don’t know how much of a performance boost it has. Now I want to know if everyone has recovered. What will the numbers be next?”
And Tellon, which begins in Philadelphia on Saturday, said while the MLB was talking about illegal substances. At least all substances should be temporarily banned. This includes rosin. which he said he did not use
“If we are going to do this Get rid of it now,” Taillon said. [by pitches] More than it is and evaluate it.”
He agrees with Giancarlo Stanton, who said Wednesday night it was easy to tell when the stadium was doing something they weren’t supposed to.
“If you watch the big league games It is quite noticeable that people use it and are not afraid to get caught,” Taillon said. about this and other men I’m not afraid to wear gloves.”
If it seems unusual for a pitcher to come out in support of the enforcement change, Taillon said he wouldn’t come out against it if it hadn’t become a problem. Now there is, he says, it’s “out of control.”
Cole did well on Wednesday in his first start since Donaldson charged fuzzy allegations against him.
“I think this might set him on fire,” Taillon said of Cole. What makes Gerrit Cole Jerit Cole?”
Cole declined to answer when asked if he had ever used Spider Tack. Taillon, when asked if he had used or used it before – said he “messed with” the substance when a friend gave him some pills in the “Tackle”. while he was undergoing rehab from Tommy John surgery.
“I couldn’t even throw the ball,” Tellon said. it surprises me That’s enough for me. Can someone find a way to make that work? For me, that’s not the answer. I thought it would be fun if there was a fair playing field. I think it will be good for the game.”
