Synopsis of Summer Season
Taylor turned out to be one of the best pitchers in the New England Collegiate Baseball League this summer. After having a rough 2011 season at Washington State, he really turned things around for the Swamp Bats. He started the summer pitching out of the bullpen, but after several impressive outings, he was moved to the starting rotation. His summer season also helped Keene to win the NECBL title.
He wound up leading the league in wins with 6, and he was among the leaders with a 2.18 era in 41.1 innings pitched. He walked 16 batters, fanned 41 and he held the opposing batters to a .188 batting average. During the Swamp Bats title run, he picked up a crucial win over the Holyoke Blue Sox.
For his performance this summer, he was ranked as the 20th best prospect in the league by Perfect Game. He was also named to the All-NECBL Second Team list this summer.
