  • Royals' Michael Taylor: Keeps up power surge

    Taylor went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Tigers. Taylor's sixth-inning blast tied the game at 4-4, and it was his third homer in his last five contests. Taylor's gone 8-for-22 (.364) with a triple, nine RBI and five runs scored in that span as he manages to hold onto a regular role in center field despite the Royals being in full-on evaluation mode for their major-league-ready prospects. For the season, the veteran outfielder is slashing a respectable .263/.326/.380 with nine long balls, 40 RBI, 42 runs scored and three steals through 103 games.

  • Royals' Michael Taylor: Homers in second straight game

    Taylor went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk for a total of three RBI and two runs scored in a 9-7 victory over the White Sox on Tuesday. Taylor went deep in his second straight game played as part of an excellent performance in which he reached base three times and racked up three RBI. Taylor has a career-best 2.9 WAR per Baseball Reference this year and appears to be seeing the ball well at the moment. He has five hits in his past 10 at-bats and is hitting .264 on the season.

  • Royals' Michael Taylor: Homers in three-hit game

    Taylor went 3-for-6 with a solo home run for a total of four RBI in a 15-7 win over the Padres on Sunday. Taylor had been in the midst of a terrible August slump coming into the game. Perhaps the three-hit performance will jolt him out of the cold stretch which saw him slashing .190/.238/.203 in 79 at-bats before rapping out these three hits. The home run was his seventh of the season and his four-RBI day at the plate gives him 35 total in 2022.

  • Royals' Michael Taylor: On bench Saturday

    Taylor isn't starting Saturday against San Diego, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

  • Royals' Michael Taylor: Produces second steal

    Taylor went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks. Taylor has had a poor August, hitting just .203 (15-for-74) with one steal, three RBI, five runs scored and a double in 23 contests. The outfielder is down to a .260/.327/.352 slash line with six home runs, two steals, 31 RBI and 36 runs scored through 97 contests. The 31-year-old is one of few veterans on a Royals team fully in evaluation mode, so it's possible he could be rested regularly down the stretch to test the readiness of players like Drew Waters and Kyle Isbel in center field.

  • Royals' Michael Taylor: Starting Friday

    Taylor (shoulder) is starting Friday against the Rays. Taylor dealt with a shoulder injury prior to the All-Star break and landed on the restricted list due to his vaccination status during the Royals' final series ahead of the layoff. However, the 31-year-old has apparently moved past the injury and will start in center field and bat eighth Friday.

  • Royals' Michael Taylor: Back from restricted list

    The Royals reinstated Taylor (shoulder) from the restricted list Monday. Taylor was one of 10 Royals players who will rejoin the 26-man active roster after being ineligible to play during the four-game weekend series in Toronto due his vaccination status. Before he was deactivated Thursday, Taylor missed three consecutive games with a right shoulder injury. It's unclear if the time on the restricted list plus the All-Star break will provide sufficient healing time for Taylor, who could go on the 10-day injured list if he isn't available for the Royals' first game of the second half Friday against the Rays. Taylor, who has served as Kansas City's everyday center fielder this season, wrapped up the first half with a .264/.340/.385 slash line to go with five home runs, one stolen base, 26 runs and 24 RBI across 236 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Michael Taylor: Goes on restricted list

    The Royals placed Taylor (shoulder) on the restricted list Thursday. Taylor's availability through the All-Star break was already in question after he sat out the Royals' last three games with a right shoulder injury, but he's now officially out for the team's four-game series in Toronto this weekend after he was one of 10 players placed on the restricted list due to his vaccination status. He'll be reinstated from the restricted list coming out of the All-Star break, at which point Taylor could move to the IL if he needs more time to recover from the shoulder injury. Edward Olivares, Ryan O'Hearn and call-ups Brewer Hicklen and Nate Eaton are expected to serve as Kansas City's primary outfielders this weekend while all of Taylor, Kyle Isbel, Hunter Dozier and Whit Merrifield (toe) are on the restricted list.

  • Royals' Michael Taylor: Unavailable in Toronto

    Taylor (shoulder) is unable to enter Canada for the four-game series in Toronto this weekend due to his vaccination status, so he'll be placed on the restricted list Thursday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. The Royals have 10 players who are unvaccinated and won't be able to play against the Blue Jays as a result. Edward Olivares should see increased playing time in Taylor's absence, while the team will also call up some minor-leaguers, especially since Kyle Isbel (personal) will also be unavailable.
