07:25 AM ET 10.15 | The Pirates' season may be over, but the offseason brings with it an early headline. Jameson Taillon, the Pirates' top minor- league prospect, has been shut down in the Arizona Fall League due to a groin injury. Taillon suffered the injury Oct. 8, when he pitched two innings for Scottsdale in its AFL opener. The right-hander allowed one unearned run on one hit, walked one and got three strikeouts. During the outing, Taillon tweaked a groin muscle. The Pirates do not believe the injury to be serious. "He is seeing the doctors (Monday), but we expect him to be ready for spring training," assistant general manager Kyle Stark said via email. The Pirates had hoped to use the AFL to build up Taillon's innings count.
