Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 40 | Run: 55 | Arm: 50 | Field: 55 | Overall: 40

A former two-sport star at Torrance (Calif.) High, Taylor was selected by the Brewers in the second round of the 2012 Draft and signed for $750,000. He made his full-season debut the following year and paced the Florida State League with 36 doubles while stealing 22 bases as a 20-year-old in '14. The move up to Double-A proved a challenge for Taylor, and he regressed further in his return to the Southern League in '16. He re-tooled his swing that offseason and looked like a different hitter in '17 when he returned from a hamstring injury in June. Advancing to Triple-A last season, Taylor put himself back on the big league radar with a breakout offensive performance that earned him a spot on Milwaukee's 40-man roster in November.

Taylor is both athletic and toolsy, with an overall feel for the game that has long impressed evaluators given his multi-sport background. While he's always shown solid hitting ability thanks to a combination of bat speed and advanced bat-to-ball skills, leading to solid batting averages, Taylor had never hit double-digit home runs in a single season until 2018, when he delivered 20 bombs in his first Triple-A campaign. The significant uptick in power was a product of Taylor's revamped swing, as he attacked the ball at a better angle and hit the ball in the air more consistently than at any other point in his career.

Taylor is an above-average runner but doesn't steal as many bases as he once did. His speed still serves him well across all three outfield spots, however, and he's long been praised by club officials for his instincts and range. And while Taylor has only average arm strength, his throws are very accurate and netted him 18 outfield assists in 2018.
