A 23-year-old redshirt senior, Taylor emerged as Kansas' No. 1 starter and top prospect during his fifth year in Lawrence. He has been on the radar for scouts since high school, when he had Tommy John surgery as a senior, but never has been drafted. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder added a little velocity in the second half of the spring, regularly working at 90-94 mph while keeping his fastball down in the zone and throwing it to both sides of the plate. He has a decent slider and also uses a changeup, but neither is sharp enough to keep hitters from looking for his fastball. Taylor throws strikes but doesn't miss a lot of bats, and he profiles more as a middle reliever in pro ball.
