Michael Taylor has had an awful year in Potomac. 0 HRs in 264 ABs!! It's time to send him down to Hagerstown and bring up Goodwin who looks like he is ready for the challenge.

Bumping him up to High-A is not such a huge leap. I would let him play there the rest of the season and possibly start him there next season depending on how he does.

Taylor is handling himself just fine outside of the power. He's increased his walk rate from 6.6% in 2011 to 10.7 in 2012... all while only seeing his K% increase 0.08%.

The HR power hasn't been there, but the rest of his game is doing well. He needs to cut down on the K's... but he's at the level he needs to be at. This is only his second full year of pro ball. Give him some time.
