Meet A Prospect : Taylor Garrison

The New York Yankees used their 7th round pick, 247th overall, on college right handed pitcher Taylor Garrison. Taylor spent his collegiate career at Fresno State University as a reliever. Taylor signed for a slot deal of $145K. 

Garrison was drafted last season in the 27th round by the Los Angeles Dodgers before he went to Fresno State and eventually signed with the Yankees this season. In that senior season he struck out 52 batters in 42 IP while saving 11 games with a 2.98 ERA. Taylor looks like another future reliever that can move fast through the system. 

Taylor Garrison is already playing for the Staten Island Yankees in the New York Penn League. He has appeared in 12 games out of the bullpen at the time of this writing with a .208 BAA, 1.98 ERA, 3 saves, 2 BB's , and 12 K's in 13.2 IP.
