Michael Taylor – Philadelphia Phillies OF


H/W:  6-6  250 lb.     B/T:  R/R     DOB:  12/19/85

The former Stanford Cardinal took a big step forward in his professional career by terrorizing pitching at two stops in 2008.  Taylor hit a combined .346 with 19 HR 88 RBI and 15 SB at Low-A Lakewood and High-A Clearwater.  Taylor then went on to hit .247 with 2 HR 10 RBI and 3 SB in the Hawaiian Winter League.  Taylor is built like a mountain, though his athleticism belies his massive frame.  Taylor has plus speed that he utilizes well in the outfield and on the basepaths.  Taylor has the power to drive the ball out of any part of any ballpark, though he is also an intelligent hitter who has a solid grasp of the strike zone and effectively works at bats for walks.  The big challenge for Taylor will be to replicate his breakout performance at AA Reading.  Taylor, at 23 years old, needs to progress through the next couple of levels without many hiccups in production.  Also, at his size, injury risks are also a potential caveat.  Taylor's size and alma mater illicits comparisons to newly acquired Phillie John Mayberry Jr.  Unlike Mayberry, Taylor exhibits excellent plate discipline and has a fundamentally solid swing.  Barring any setbacks, expect Taylor to have a better major league career.

2009 Projection: Taylor will begin the next season at AA Reading.  If he replicates the same numbers as last season, expect him to earn a promotion to AAA.  Taylor doesn't have many cards out right now, and his 2007 Bowman Chrome Draft cards are solid bargains at 50-75 cents each.  Watch to see if Taylor's power numbers increase next season.  His 39 doubles gives optimism of future 20-25 HR totals.
