    Taylor didn’t make the team? How did he do in ST? I thought that he would considering the relative hype surrounding him.

      He hit .200 in spring training. And with all the new acquisitions this off-season, he’s moved way down the depth chart. Cespedes, Crisp, Reddick, Smith, Gomes and Cowgill are all ahead of him in the outfield picture.
