Official Scouting Report

  • SSPosition Projection

01/13/2019 - College PREP - Jackson, MS Taylor is a lean, athletic SS who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying solid hitting / power potential through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Barrel accuracy is a plus and he utilizes his lower half well. At SS, feet are active and aggressive as he attacks balls but needs to play through more with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds / turn of the double play. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. Taylor has a lot of potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "present" abilities (tools), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
