Biography

Taylor Stone Gushue (born December 19, 1993) is an American professional baseball catcher in the Washington Nationals organization. He was a fourth-round pick of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 2014 Major League Baseball draft.

Career

A fourth-round pick of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 2014 Major League Baseball draft, Gushue signed for a $388,800 signing bonus. Though drafted as a catcher, Gushue also played first base at the University of Florida. After signing, he was assigned to the Jamestown Jammers where he batted .241/.336/.402 with five home runs and 29 RBIs. He spent 2015 with the West Virginia Power, batting .231/.288/.342 with five home runs and 47 RBIs in 99 games, and 2016 with the Bradenton Marauders, where batted .226/.282/.357 with eight home runs and 38 RBIs.

Gushue was traded to the Washington Nationals on September 26, 2016, for infielder Chris Bostick.

While not considered a remarkable hitter in the Pirates organization, Gushue demonstrated an immediate power surge in the Nationals organization, where he started 2017 with the Potomac Nationals. He was named a Carolina League All-Star, alongside teammates VĂ­ctor Robles and Kelvin Gutierrez. Midseason prospect rankings produced by MLB Pipeline saw Gushue vault into the Nationals' top 30 prospects, ranking as their third-best catching prospect behind Raudy Read and Pedro Severino and coming in at 25th overall among Washington prospects. Gushue led the Potomac Nationals in home runs with 18 on the season along with slashing .241/.327/.437 with 67 RBIs. He finished the season with the Harrisburg Senators, playing four games with them. He went on to play for 13 games for the Mesa Solar Sox in the Arizona Fall League after the season.

Gushue was invited to participate in 2018 and 2019 spring training with the Nationals. In 2018, playing for two minor league teams, he batted .213/.292/.364 with 10 home runs and 44 RBIs. In 2019, playing for Fresno he batted .312/.358/.517 with 11 home runs and 39 RBIs.

He played for the United States national baseball team in the 2019 WBSC Premier 12 tournament in November 2019.
