Taylor Ard was drafted three time:

  • 2010 – 35th Round by the Marlins out of Mount Hood CC
  • 2011 – 25th Round by the Red Sox out of Washinton State
  • 2012 – 7th Round by the Marlins out of Washington State

Coming out of college he was limited defensively to a corner infield spot, but he showed plus power and good hitting ability with wood bats.

He has had a weird career since going pro. He has never advanced higher than High-A, released by both the Seattle and Arizona organizations, and spent time with two Independent League teams. He has had some nice seasons though, notably his 2015 campaign with the Independent League River City, when he went .313/.385/.646 with 30 HR.  This season he signed with the Miami organization, and is hitting .241/.307/.384 with 12 HR and was selected to the FSL All-Star game.
