Yankees RHP Jameson Taillon shares how he’s staying active during rehab

Yankees RHP Jameson Taillon might not be able to throw off a mound just yet, but he’s doing everything he can to stay active.

Taillon underwent ankle surgery to repair a torn tendon he tried playing through in September, but couldn’t do it without pain. He did say he was “ready to attack” his rehab, and he’s doing just that. Check it out:

This is a perfect drill for Taillon, as he doesn’t have to move his ankle and keeps his arm maintained while he works to get back on the mound again.

Taillon is going to be a crucial piece of the Yankees’ rotation again next season. Even if they do manage to sign someone after the lockout, Taillon will be put right in the middle of the rotation and asked to produce.

In his first season in New York in 2021, Taillon posted a 4.30 ERA in 144.1 innings with 69 earned runs to go along with 140 strikeouts and 44 walks.
