Who is a good comparable to him? Drew Stubbs comes to mind as a potential outcome.

Mike Cameron is what I've always heard.

Stubbs night be a middling prediction, with a high end of Cameron and a low end of AAAA / 5th OF if he cannot make contact in the majors.

So he's going to basically be Lorenzo Cain with 20-25 homers, right?

I doubt he's going to hit .300 but sure

After the Souza ---> Devon White discussion in the Former Nats thread, I looked up White's comps on Baseball-Reference.  Both he and Mike Cameron have two common comps - Chet Lemon and Brady Anderson - in their top 10.  White's closest comp is Amos Otis.  Cameron's is Jim Wynn. 

I'd love it if Michael Taylor could have a career like any of those guys, but I wonder who he is closest to.  We've always said Cameron, but I don't know if the build is the same.  Maybe Chet Lemon.  Taylor is an inch taller than Cameron and the same weight.  I'm guessing he'll end up bigger than Cameron, but since he's already  24, I don't know how much more he'll put on.  White is an inch shorter and 40 pounds lighter. Lemon 2 inches shorter than taylor and 20 pounds lighter, but, given the height difference, might be another comp for Taylor. 20 HR power, +/- 4, for most of his career with < 5-10 SBs.  Fewer Ks, but that is probably era.  Cameron is probably closer.

Who got sent down when the Nats brought up Taylor today? Is Taylor to be the 4th OF? Maybe learn how from Span how to anchor an OF?
