ANAHEIM — Jameson Taillon left his start against the Angels after just two innings Tuesday night. The Yankees right-hander was hit on the right arm on an inning-ending come-backer by Magneuris Sierra. Taillon walked off the mound and immediately down the tunnel to the clubhouse.
The Yankees said Taillon had a right forearm contusion.
Taillon’s exit came after giving up a game-tying home run to Angels catcher Max Stassi. His final line was two earned runs on two hits with two strikeouts in two innings.
Rookie Greg Weissert took over after the Bombers scored two in the top of the third, giving him a 4-2 lead to work with.
