The Diamondbacks continue their run on college pitchers on the 3rd day, this time taking Curtis Taylor. Taylor pitched from both the bullpen and rotation at the University of British Columbia, although he will get a chance to start at the pro level. Taylor is 6'6" 225, so he's mostly filled out. His fastball sits low 90s, tops out at 95 and features a slider and splitter. He throws from a low arm slot (below 3/4) and his slider and splitter are solid if he can stay on top of the ball.
Taylor is the 2nd player the Diamondbacks have drafted out of Canada this year, taking Andy Yerzy last night in the 2nd round.
