Jack Taschner Declares Free Agency

Pitcher Jack Taschner has declared free agency after refusing an outright assignment to the minors from the Pirates, tweets Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com.  The left-hander was DFA'd by Pittsburgh early last week.

In 17 appearances this season, Taschner posted an ERA of 6.05 with 7.9 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9.  The 32-year-old threw his fastball at an average of 89.6 mph in 2009 but has seen that dip to 88.8 in 2010.  His pitch velocity has steadily declined across the last three seasons.

  1. I hope he catches on somewhere soon. He’s one of the classiest guys I’ve met in the majors.

    And I’m sure the teams will be lining up for his services…..Maybe Taschner is a good guy, but he’s a crappy pitcher. If you can’t even stick with the Pirates, I think that’s a sign that Jack should consider another line of work.
