The Yankees’ success this season can be attributed to a slew of players taking the proverbial “next step” in their play. Jameson Taillon is easily in that conversation, with a pristine 8-1 record on a 2.70 ERA thus far.
However, when it comes to Taillon, Yankees manager Aaron Boone still proceeds with caution. Out of his 13 starts in 2022, the Yankee righty has stayed under this line nine times. The combination of his injury history with a stout Yankee bullpen has kept Taillon’s pitch count and innings in check.
Tonight he’ll face off against an Astros lineup that is once again one of the best in the big leagues. Against right handers, Houston ranks fifth in OPS (.743), third in ISO (.182), and fifth in wRC+ (116). And specifically, versus Taillon’s two primary pitches, the four-seam fastball and slider, Houston ranks fourth and seventh in wRC, respectively.
There is no love lost between these two teams, who once again sit atop of the AL standings. I expect both teams to manage this four-game set relatively tight, meaning Taillon should be on his typically short leash. I have the Yankee hurler projected at 16 outs tonight.
Pick: Jameson Taillon Under 17.5 Pitching Outs (-130) | Play to (-145)
