5/14/13 - Brown commit. Athletic build, above average frame, 6-foot-2, 180-pound right handed pitcher, has projection, young class of 2013 graduate. Pitches from a full windup, delivery has athleticism and direction, gains momentum towards his target, repeats it well, shows good stamina, delivery stayed intact for seven innings. Athletic off the mound, fields position well and efficiently. Arm action is loose and athletic, consistently works from a high ¾ slot. Advanced fastball, showed good finish, late action through the zone, showed mostly arm side run, sat at 87-88 mph for seven innings, touched 89-90 mph through the first two innings, with command. Well above average curveball, has consistent control, showed command, showed the ability to throw for strikes as well as a swing and miss pitch. Curveball worked on 11/5 plane, slurve action, late break, 72-76 mph for strikes, threw it harder at 77-81 when ahead in two strike counts. Taugner is a highly athletic right handed pitcher who has undoubtedly flown under the radar. The fact that he is a young senior (recently turned 18) and has arm strength with command and projection could make him a high follow at the next level. 7 IP, 11 K, 4 H, 2 BB, 0 R. On the season Taugner is 8-1 with 94 strikeouts in 57 innings pitched and a 0.61 ERA.
