Cape Cod: Threw almost exclusively out of the pen for the Tigers this spring, showing legit swing-and-miss stuff but also struggling to limit free passes and living too much over the middle of the plate with runners on. This summer Taylor took a nice step forward, striking out 30 over five appearances (four starts) and 21 innings while walking just two (!) and allowing only 15 hits. His fastball worked consistently in the 94-96 mph velo band and his upper-70s curve was a true weapon with hard bite and depth, registering 2700-2850 rpm spin rates. He also showed a low-80s slider and tighter "cutter" version of the pitch and a low-80s changeup, rounding out a deep arsenal that points to a starter's future. If he has truly harnessed his stuff and can continue to avoid the walk bug, Taylor could be a huge weapon for a stacked LSU squad next spring. He'll be draft eligible as a sophomore next summer

Was everything you could ask for in Game 1 for the Falcons. The 6-2, 205-pound right-handed hurler came out of the gates pounding the zone with both the fastball and the breaking ball. Looked more comfortable with the breaking ball in the early going and was able to locate it in any count during his outing, allowing him to keep hitters off balance and force a lot of weak contact. Taylor has an aggressive arm that produced an 88-91 mph fastball and a 74-78 mph breaking ball during his 6 ⅔ innings of work leading Florence to an 11-3 victory in Game 1 of the series. Taylor’s final statline in the win concluded with 6.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R and 15 K’s.

RHP Grant Taylor (2021, LSU) was tasked with facing a high-powered Baylor offense and he more than gave the Falcons what they needed on the mound. First, the frame has continued to mature and as he has added some strength to a an already sturdy frame. The senior worked quickly on the mound and attacked opposing hitters. Through his six inning stint, Taylor continued to make quality pitch after quality pitch and kept his velocity throughout the outing. The fastball was mostly 88-91 and bumped 92 a couple times, even registering 93 on the gun as well. The pitch had some late sink as well. Taylor also showed that power breaking he has proven to locate time and time again. Wednesday was no exception as the pitch stayed 75-76 mph with really late action. Both pitches looked identical out of the hand. Taylor did give up two long balls but also had 14 K and only 2 BB (against a very formidable opponent). 

Big time talent on the mound that possesses a fastball that already sits in the low 90's with late life and creates plane. An advanced breaking ball that is difficult to pick up with tight spin. Is ultra competitive on the mound. Very clean mechanics with a body that projects well. An elite arm in the 2021 class.
