Pirates pitching prospect Jameson Taillon will be called up and make his major-league debut against the Mets on Wednesday, the team announced.

Taillon, 24, was selected second in the 2010 MLB draft out of The Woodlands High School in Texas. He’s the team’s No. 4 prospect, according to MLB.com.

In 61 2/3 innings across 10 starts for Triple A Indianapolis, Taillon is 4–2 with a 2.04 ERA and 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings.
