For quite some time, Ty Taubenheim was a pretty good prospect in the Blue Jays organization. He's kind of tailed off in the past few years, but he's been pretty decent with Indianapolis this year despite his 4-9 record. He's a big guy (6'6") and only 25, so it's easy to see why Huntington was interested in him this winter. Like Barthmaier (I'm writing this in the wee hours of Friday morning, maybe Barthmaier throws a gem on Friday night, who knows?) I don't know if he's ready for this call-up, but I do think that he's a pitcher that's worth a look for the Pirates and so I'm interested to see what he does with this start (even though I'll be at a wedding reception and miss the whole thing).
