Trey Taylor, lhp
Mansfield (Texas) HS


Taylor didn't blossom as dramatically as Griffin, but he made huge strides to become the top lefthander in the Midwest. After showing an 84-86 mph fastball as a junior and dropping as low as 81 last summer, he suddenly developed heat that rises to 92-93, outstanding velocity for a high school pitcher, particularly a lefty. Because he couldn't overpower hitters in the past, he has made good progress developing a curveball and changeup. He trusts his changeup so much that he lost a no-hitter on one. He also has nice size at 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds. Taylor is committed to Baylor but probably won't make it past the sandwich round.
