Taillon, known for his resilience and mental toughness, has already overcome considerable adversity in his young career.
“He’s tough as nails, so he’s always going to look for the positive in things,” Gerrit Cole said.
Jameson tailon will defeat cancer.
“I was more nervous about what kind of cancer it was than I was about getting told I had cancer,” Lambo said.
When he found out Taillon was in Allegheny General Hospital recovering from surgery, Lambo grabbed his cellphone and texted his former teammate.
Andrew Lambo has no doubt Jameson Taillon, who on Monday had surgery for suspected testicular cancer, will conquer the disease and return to the mound for the Pirates.
“I know Jameson, so I know he’s thinking, ‘I’m going to kick this thing’s (butt) and move on.’
Lambo, an outfielder with the Pirates from 2013-15, began his own battle with testicular cancer last June.
