Nationals' Michael Taylor: Could open as fourth outfielder
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Taylor could open the season as the Nationals' fourth outfielder after the team traded for Ben Revere on Friday, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

The 24-year-old Taylor was gaining steam as a fantasy sleeper in recent months, with many envisioning an everyday role in center field and perhaps atop the batting order. However, the acquisition of Revere hurts Taylor's outlook for playing time considerably. Increased time could always open up if there is an injury, but Taylor may play primarily against lefties to start.

Nationals OF Michael Taylor not in lineup for Game 1 Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington Nationals outfielder Michael Taylor is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader.

Bryce Harper will play center field with Matt den Dekker starting in right field in the first half of Saturday's twin bill. Look for Taylor to be available off the bench and likely start the nightcap.

Nationals outfielder Michael Taylor collects two hits Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Michael Taylor went 2 for 5 with an RBI in Monday's 5-1 victory over the Reds. Taylor had been mired in a 1-for-14 slump coming into the Monday's contest, so the two hits were a welcome development.

It was only Taylor's third multi-hit outing of a September that has seen him hit just .195, his second-lowest monthly batting average in 2015. The 24-year-old outfielder certainly showed promise at the plate over his first full season in the majors, demonstrating some pop with the bat and stealing 16 bags in the process.

However, until he improves on his robust 31.2 strikeout rate, Taylor will likely struggle to thoroughly fulfill his considerable potential.

Nationals OF Michael Taylor returns to lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Michael Taylor is back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.

Taylor's injuries came more from a soreness due to repeated dives in Friday's game than a tangible a injury, so it's unsurprising he's coming back after only one game missed. He's batting leadoff and pushing the Nationals outfield back to the usual alignment, with Bryce Harper at right field.
