Taylor made his name at the Area Code Games tryouts last year, earning his way into the Games at Long Beach State's Blair Field and performing well for hundreds of scouts. He's athletic and has some quick hands that give him surprising power at his size. He's a plus runner who could wind up as a utility player and has a good chance to stay in the infield. He's undersized at 5-foot-9, 159 pounds and may not have the arm strength to stick at shortstop. He is committed to Arizona.
