On the Farm: Corey Taylor

With the Brooklyn Cyclones, Corey Taylor's first pro stop, he is continuing the stinginess he exhibited in his senior year at Texas Tech where in 57.1 innings he yielded only two earned runs, that college performance earning him All-Big 12 First Team honors and a spot as an NCBWA All-American (third team).

With a fastball reaching 92-93 mph, Taylor's ERA was the lowest in Division 1 baseball this past college season, his WHIP of 0.85 was the fifth lowest, and his hits allowed per nine innings was the tenth lowest.

In his senior season, in 19 appearances (18 in relief), he did not lose a game. He gave up only 36 hits and 13 walks while striking out 32, opponents hitting only .186 against him. Further, he pitched 24-2/3 innings without giving up an earned run.

The Mets drafted the right-hander in the seventh round.

In his three Cyclones appearances, here is what Taylor has done: 1 hit, 0 walks, three strikeouts, no earned runs, WHIP = 0.33.
