02/10/2013 - College PREP - Sacramento, CA Taylor is a very talented young OF with an advanced skill set. Defensively, she has good hands, keeps her feet active in her pre-pitch prep step and has a quick release that produces accurate results. She takes good angles/routes to the ball at times, is willing to leave her feet to make the big play and will benefit from cutting down the number of steps in her crow-hop/power step. She has a tendency to drift at times and should continue to work on using her agility more effectively to cover as much ground as possible. At the plate, Taylor uses a square set up with a back load, short stride, centered balance and has a short aggressive path to the ball. She has explosive hips, smooth rhythm throughout and has very good strike zone discipline which suggests that she is a young hitter with a plan. She will benefit from striding to a light front foot to help keep weight back, getting front foot down earlier and seeing the ball deeper into the strike zone to maximize her use of the entire field. Overall, Taylor is an exciting young player with a bright future if she continues to work hard and pays attention to the details in her preparation.
