2/9/20 Position Player
Hit: Left handed hitter that starts out in a balanced setup. More speed than strength at the plate. Leg quick triggers an on time loading sequence. Maintains a level bat path through the zone.
Power: Line drive/gap to gap abilities. Should show potential for more power as he fills out.
Offensive Projection: Top of the lineup/table setter.
Top Rapsodo BP Exit Velocity: 85 mph.
Top Rapsodo BP Distance: 311 ft.
Field: Looks the part up the middle. Not a flashy defender but gets the job done. Solid footwork fielding left of center creating positive momentum.
Throw: Loose arm through a ¾ slot. Balls comes out well. Just enough arm to keep him at short at the next level.
Defensive Projection: SS/2B.

6/19/18

A lefty swinger that starts in a tall, open setup. Movements are fluid and athletic prior to launch. Very efficient, level stroke. Projects for much  more pop as he fills out athletic frame. Can spray it to the opposite field and flashed some authority to pull side. Presently has a top of the lineup look to him. In the infield he plays with fluid actions and soft hands. Arm is an adequate tool but plays as above average with his quick transfer. Profiles at second base at the next level.

Taylor showed up noticeably improve since we saw him last. Much more physical and it showed at the plate. Very efficient swing from the left side with sneaky pop for frame. A high feel hitter who has a knack for squaring up the baseball. A middle infielder with soft hands and mechanically sound feet. Not overly flashy out there but sure-handed. Second base looks to be most natural fit.

60-yard dash: 7.2
Infield Velocity: 75
Exit Velocity: 82

6/21/17

A left-handed hitter that starts in a tall, open setup. Uses a controlled stride for timing. Creates solid energy with his lower half. Barrel maintains momentum through loading sequence into swing decision.  Path is level, with whip and above average bat speed. Gets on plane early and finds the barrel often. Swing is very efficient and he should see easy improvements in pop as he matures. A talented young bat to follow. A middle infielder that plays with fluidity and confidence. Mechanically sound and made all the plays in his defensive eval. Glove works on the move. Solid, young defender. On the mound he uses a good pace to his delivery that requires little effort. Mechanically efficient with clean arm action. Arm speed is developing and he works through a high-¾ slot. Fastball was mostly straight through the zone at 76-79 mph. All signs point to more velocity to come with maturity. Spins an 11/5 shaped breaking ball with signs of sharpness at 65-67 mph. Has feel for the offering, using it to freeze righties. Very solid pitchability for his age.
