Taillon, Quintana, Jansen off the board

As the Winter Meetings are wrapping up, we are seeing more free agents agree to deals, including three free agent pitchers of note.

Jameson Taillon, a 31 year old righthanded pitcher who just had a couple of league average seasons for the New York Yankees, has reportedly agreed to terms with the Chicago Cubs on a four year, $68 million deal. When we did our poll on whether to sign Taillon we used Ben Clemens’ three year, $42 million projection — this is obviously significantly more than that, though Taillon’s market has reportedly been strong, due in no small part to the lack of draft pick compensation attached to him.
