Drafted in the 15th round (444th overall) by the Kansas City Royals in 2013 (signed for $100,000)
Taylor was a 33rd-round pick by the Astros after his freshman year at Salt Lake (Utah) CC in 2011, and he made an impact for UC Irvine this spring after transferring in for his junior year, hitting .314/.369/.451 with three homers and 33 RBIs. Taylor lacks a standout tool, but he solid tools across the board. He's a solid-average runner and an average defensive center fielder, with an average arm. His swing has some length and rigidity, but he shows feel for hitting. He's mostly a fastball hitter right now, and he projects as a fringe-average hitter with fringe-average power.
