Last week, Pirates starter Jameson Taillon underwent surgery for suspected testicular cancer. Those suspicions were correct, as Taillon’s pathology report came back positive for cancer,’s Adam Berry reports.

Taillon will be reevaluated next week, but he has already been cleared for light baseball activities. There is still no timetable for Taillon’s return to game action.

Taillon, 25, put up a 3.31 ERA with a 30/13 K/BB ratio in 35 1/3 innings over six starts before getting sidelined.
