Prospect of the Day:  OF Tyrone Taylor (Class-A Wisconsin)

When following prospects and evaluating minor-league players, it’s important to learn from mistaken judgments. Every single professional scout will be wrong numerous times when projecting big league talent, and for the rest of us who are not professionals, we’ll be wrong much more often.

The Brewers drafted Tyrone Taylor in the second round of the 2012 Draft, and I questioned the selection on this website due to unimpressive scouting reports from Keith Law and Baseball America. His swing had major flaws. He didn’t project to have much power as he rose up the minor-league ranks. He was an athlete, sure, but there was a lot that needed to go correctly for him to become a premier prospect.

A year later, we’re talking about Taylor as one of the best prospects in the Brewers system. He launched his seventh home run of the season on Friday evening — a grand slam — and he’s now hitting .306/.373/.466 without much of a platoon split. He projects to stay in center field defensively. Scouts are taking notice, too, and Taylor is quite simply jumping up prospect ranking lists right now.

The lesson: this is why teams draft young, athletic prospects with tools. They often possess current flawed baseball skills, but premium athletes can adapt, develop and change better than older, less-athletic collegiate players with established track records. Everything said about Taylor on draft day was correct … at that time. He has made massive changes at the plate, though, and he has become one of the hottest prospects in the minor leagues.

    I thought Law said that Taylor had the most potential out of anyone the Brewers had drafted last season?

    • J.P. Breen says: July 7, 2013

      He said that well after Taylor had already made his adjustments. When following prospects, it’s important to keep in mind that opinions/judgments (of both experts and non-experts) are malleable.

    Sounds like Taylor will be ready just about the time Gomez’s contact is up…

    • Dan V says: July 6, 2013

      I wonder if Gomez won’t be moved for pitching at some point…
