A standout running back and safety for the Torrance football team, Taylor is an excellent athlete who figures to polish some of his rough edges once he focuses on baseball. A shoulder strain relegated him to DH duties and clouded his draft stock a bit, but Taylor has shown a solid-average arm and good instincts in center field when healthy. His above-average speed also plays on the basepaths, where he is aggressive and gets good reads. Scouts are a bit conflicted on Taylor's bat. He has an unusual load, rocking onto his back leg before moving forward, but he has a fairly efficient swing path and good bat speed. He has a tendency to push the ball, but some he has a chance to develop into a quality doubles hitter with fringy power potential as he matures. Taylor's bat carries risk, but his athleticism and all-around tools package could get the Cal State Fullerton recruit drafted between the second and fourth rounds.
