Michael A. Taylor - OF
Taylor is one of the best outfield free agents remaining. He provides the right-handed bat Boston is looking for, but lacks consistent power. Still, Taylor hit 21 homers with Minnesota last year, a career-high. Most of his homers flew out of left field, though, so he may have some trouble battling the Monster. More doubles for the Red Sox!
Taylor is a fantastic defender. He's fast and has a strong arm and a great eye. He could save runs in center or right field if his bat is trending better than Tyler O'Neill's, the Sox's likely everyday right fielder at this point.
Taylor's bat doesn't come close to rivaling Soler's, Boston's first-choice outfield candidate at this time. But Soler doesn't have anywhere near the fielding skills that Taylor does. The front office is going to have to pick its poison with the remaining free-agent options.
