Nationals manager Dusty Baker said after Sunday's game that Michael Taylor would start in center field against left-handed pitching going forward, with Revere starting only against right-handers, The Washington Post reports.

That puts Revere on the bench for the entire upcoming series against the Dodgers, as the Nats will face three left-handed starters (Clayton Kershaw, Scott Kazmir and Julio Urias). Revere's actually hit well against lefties in a tiny sample this season (.364/.423/.591 in 22 at-bats) and hasn't shown a platoon split during his career, so this move seems to be more about Taylor than it does Revere. If Taylor keeps improving, Revere could be in danger of losing even more playing time to the youngster.
