Uncommitted Senior Spotlight: Brody Taylor

Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

Uncommitted Senior Spotlight

Brody Taylor is a very polished right handed hitter that has shown the ability to handle high level arms during both the spring and summer seasons.  An advanced athlete, Taylor has run a sub 7.00 sixty on the PBR laser, while showcasing a vertical jump of 32.5in.  Offensively, the peak exit velocity of 99.5 will catch eyes, but it is the consistency of the barrel that can separate Taylor from a lot of hitters.  Through 2023 PBR Events, his average exit velocity has settled at 91.2mph.
