HOW ACQUIRED: Selected 10th in the 2014 MLS Expansion Draft from New England Revolution on Dec. 10, 2014

He only made one appearance for the Revs before he was left unprotected in the 2014 expansion draft, and acquired by City. Unfortunately, Taylor's 2015 season was curtailed by injury, and he will be looking to make up for lost time in 2016.
