Georgia could get a boost next year if the state's top junior-college prospect doesn't get drafted high. Middle Georgia JC lefthander Matt Taylor is a 6-foot-2 sophomore who began his career at Alabama and ranked 17th on BA's Georgia draft list in 2009. He has pitched with an average to plus fastball in 2011, topping out at 93. His changeup is his best secondary pitch, and he throws both a slider and curveball, with the slider the better offering. He competes well and had a banner year, with 128 strikeouts in 82 innings during a 7-5, 3.31 season.
