Nationals' Michael Taylor: Recalled to majors Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Taylor was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.

Taylor hasn't done much at the major league level this season, and has actually struggled even more in Triple-A with a .205/.285/.291 slash line, but he'll get another chance over the final month of the season. He doesn't figure to start much, though, with Trea Turner establishing himself as the everyday center fielder. Lucas Giolito will head back to the minors to clear space on the major league roster.

Nationals' Michael Taylor: Not in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor is out of the lineup for the second straight game Sunday against the Pirates, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Nothing out of the ordinary here, as Taylor continues to split time in center field with Ben Revere. Look for the young, speedy outfielder to continue to see sporadic starts as long as the team's outfield is fully healthy.

Nationals' Michael Taylor: Blasts two-run homer in Friday victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Taylor went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in Friday's 5-1 victory over the Pirates.

He went deep in the seventh against reliever Neftali Feliz with a 379-foot two-run shot that plated Stephen Strasburg, his first homer since June 19 versus the Padres. Taylor enjoyed a stellar June in which he slashed .310/.355/.500, but he has only two hits over his first 10 at-bats in July as he continues to share time with Ben Revere.

Nationals' Michael Taylor: Recalled from Triple-A Syracuse
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.

As expected, Taylor's stay at Triple-A Syracuse was very brief. He only played in one game, during which he went 1-for-4 with a double and a walk. Taylor's performance at the plate has been rather subpar, as he's hitting just .225/.266/.372, so he'll likely continue sharing time with Ben Revere in the outfield. However it's worth noting that while Revere's batting average is just .230 for the season, he's shown improvement as of late and could get the nod to start over Taylor as the season goes on.

Nationals' Michael Taylor: Should return to Nats after break
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Manager Dusty Baker suggested Monday that Taylor could return to the Nationals within 10 days, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Taylor was surprisingly sent to Triple-A on Monday, but it seems as if the Nationals are simply looking to get him some extra at-bats through the upcoming All-Star break. The team needed a roster spot for the activation of Jonathan Papelbon on Sunday, and decided to sacrifice one of their bench options in favor of retaining more relief pitching. Until Taylor is back, Chris Heisey and Clint Robinson will serve as the fourth and fifth outfielders, respectively.
