2012 Draft Profile: Taylor Dugas
Player: Taylor Dugas
Previously Drafted: 2011/8th Rd/Cubs
The more I see of Taylor Dugas, the more I like him. Dugas’ tools don’t stand out, but his approach to the game and competitiveness are exceptional.
Dugas has a very good approach at the plate, with superior strike zone judgement. He has a smooth line drive swing and more pop than you would expect given his size.
Even with average arm strength, Dugas is a plus defender in the outfield. He gets good jumps and takes good routes, which combined with above average speed, allow him to cover plenty of ground.
