2014

Taylor's 51 steals in 58 attempts at High-A jump off the page, but he is more than just a one-dimensional speedster. The outfielder is still rough around the edges, so how he responds to the Double-A challenge this season will provide a much better idea of how close to the majors he actually is. If some of the 41 doubles he hit last year become home runs, and some of his strikeouts become walks and singles, Taylor will leap up prospect lists in a hurry.
