LHP Drew Taylor (Wake Forest, NC): Taylor has endured a rough spring, as 7 of his 14 starts were rained out and he rarely had the chance to throw on any sort of scheduled rotation. Scouts remembering his 92 mph fastball this fall and winter could benefit. Taylor was 87-88 mph in Cedar Rapids and had lots of confidence in a very good 79 mph change up. He’s a polished pitcher who is a proven winner. This kid is one of the top ;efties in high school baseball. If MLB don't grab him now, he's headed to NC State, and MLB will have to pay the price later.
