Drafted in the 14th round (418th overall) by the New York Mets in 2019 (signed for $10,000)
A 5-foot-11, 170-pound senior outfielder for the Blue Devils, Taylor is an easy plus runner who covers huge swaths of ground in center field and has the athleticism and ball-tracking abilities to take away extra-base hits on a regular basis. Offensively, Taylor had a strong 2019 season and hit .333/.400/.535 with 10 stolen bases in 14 attempts, and he’s also hit over .300 over four years for the Blue Devils. However, scouts are skeptical of his swing, which has length and includes a significant arm bar. His bat path is quickly in and out of the zone, and he’s also never posted good strikeout-to-walk rates throughout his collegiate career. With no power to speak of, Taylor’s game revolves around his defense and running ability and while the upside here is limited, he could be an interesting senior sign.
