At the same age Carlos Gomez was hitting .247/.298/.357 in the majors. I see no reason that Carlos Gomez gets credit for being on a crappy franchise and getting 1000 PA of well below average play - he was roughly a 1-WAR player until age 25.

It depends on whether those crappy years helped him become the player he was later on or not.  If Taylor needs another thousand PAs to become an average player, that's not going to work out nearly as well as if he tracks Gomez year by year per age development.  (Also, before Gomez's age 24 season, he'd never played on a sub-.500 team. The Twins and Mets were both decent then.)
