Michael Taylor's adjustments starting to 'pay off'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2013) Nationals outfield prospect Michael Taylor is arguably having the best season of his pro career. The 2009 sixth-round pick, who is considered the Nationals' fifth-best prospect by MLB.com, is batting .272 with four triples, seven home runs, 26 doubles, 57 RBI and 29 stolen bases in 88 games for Class A Potomac.
Taylor has especially performed well since the Carolina League All-Star break. He's batting .322 with a .506 slugging percentage in 22 second-half games.
"(He) made an adjustment in his approach right around the break that is starting to pay off," Nationals director of player development Doug Harris told MASNsports.com. "He made a big adjustment with his lower half (of his body), which allows him to track the ball better and be more consistent with his path to the ball."
