RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Tyrone Taylor.
Taylor emerged as a top prospect in the Brewers' organization a couple years ago, but wasn't able to put up top-prospect numbers in 2015. In his first full season with Double-A Biloxi, the 21-year-old slashed a meager .260/.312/.337, a step back from the .727 OPS he posted in 2014 with High-A Brevard County. He maintained a contact rate of 88 percent, but also saw a decrease in his walk rate and an increase in his strikeout rate. Taylor is still young, so he still has time to develop into an everyday outfielder for the Brewers, especially if he can continue to consistently make contact.
Taylor put together another quality season with the bat in 2014, tallying 45 extra-base hits and striking out just 58 times in 135 games. He also showed improvement as a base runner, and was thrown out just six times in 29 attempts. Taylor went 1-for-13 in a brief appearance with Double-A Huntsville last year but he will likely be the starting center fielder there in 2015. He is one of the top, if not the top, prospect in the Brewers’ system and is well on his way to reaching the big leagues sometime in 2016 or 2017.
While Taylor’s power faded down the stretch last season, he provided a glimpse at his upside by posting a respectable .738 OPS and stealing 19 bases -- while primarily playing center field -- in his age-19 season. Taylor has speed and athleticism, so there is a good chance he could handle center field long term. Taylor’s age may keep him at the Low-A level to start 2014, but a fast start could earn him a ticket to High-A in short order.
