The Yankees are about to begin a nine-game stretch that will determine their playoff lives, and it sounds like they’ll get a bit healthier on the mound for the season’s penultimate series.

With the Yankees and Red Sox preparing to start their three-game series at Fenway Park on Friday night, manager Aaron Boone said before the game that Jameson Taillon is back with the team and will likely return to the mound next week against the Toronto Blue Jays.

“He’s with us now. He had a successful (rehab outing), I think he threw 50 pitches the other day,” Boone said. “So, we’re going to get through today and kind of talk through that tonight, but a good chance he’s starting one of the games in Toronto.”

The right-hander, who is currently on the 10-day IL due to an ankle injury, pitched three innings for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday night, allowing two earned runs on four hits while throwing 51 pitches against the Syracuse Mets.

In 27 starts with the Yankees this season, Taillon has pitched to a 4.41 ERA and 1.22 WHIP.

Prior to landing on the IL, he was scuffling a bit, pitching to a 7.01 ERA with seven home runs allowed in his most recent five starts. But he’s proven to be a streaky pitcher, as he compiled a 1.25 ERA in his previous seven starts.
