01/15/2021 - 2021 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament (TX) Taylor is a skilled/athletic 2-way prospect (3B/RHP) who showed well during his time at the Pre-Season All-America Tournament. At 3B, he has active prep and takes good angles in his approach to the GB. Hands are presented out in front as he makes the plays with soft hands, gathers well and has a clean transfer to throw. As a hitter, this righty displays an athletic/tall stand with rhythm to load. Swing is quick on a short/direct path as he connects with pop and hits line-drives. Once on base he remains aggressive with his leads and is always looking to advance. On the mound, this RHP has an effective 3-pitch mix (FB, CB, CH) coming from a 3/4 arm slot. He maintains fluid tempo, has smooth separation and repeats well. FB tops out at 81 mph while showing arm-side run. Breaking ball has 1/5 shape with good action. CH is thrown with FB arm speed, creating good deception and complimenting his FB well. It has good sink and gets GB outs. Branch is a solid all-around player who has the tools that will make an impact in this his senior season.
