  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Blasts third homer

    Taylor went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, an additional run and a double in Monday's 5-4 victory versus Arizona.

    Taylor connected for a two-run shot to right field in the sixth inning, and that proved to be the difference as Los Angeles navigated a narrow win. The utilityman recently endured a four-game, 0-for-14 stretch that included 10 strikeouts, but he has bounced back by reaching base safely 10 times over his subsequent five contests. Taylor has gone 6-for-17 with two doubles, two homers, four walks and four RBI over the five-game stretch.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Notches theft Sunday

    Taylor went 0-for-1 with two walks, a run and a stolen base in a 5-4 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

    Though he didn't collect a hit in the contest, Taylor reached base three times on two free passes and a hit-by-pitch. His ninth-inning walk was particularly critical, as it resulted in Taylor scoring the game-winning run on a Gavin Lux double. Taylor has drawn two walks in two straight games and has reached base in half of his past 18 plate appearances.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Belts second long ball

    Taylor went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and three total runs in a loss to Philadelphia on Friday.

    Taylor accounted for the Dodgers' first run of the game with a solo shot to left field in the third inning, and he scored two additional runs in the back-and-forth affair. The long ball was just the second of the season for the utilityman, who swatted 20 homers last season. Taylor recently endured a 1-for-20 stretch, but he has picked things up by collecting back-to-back multi-hit games.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Scores run in return

    Taylor went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Taylor returned after a one-game absence caused by a knee injury to play right field and hit seventh. He reached base on a walk in the seventh inning and came around to score on an Edwin Rios double. Though it's positive Taylor was able to return after a brief absence, he now has one hit across his last 20 at-bats.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Back in action Wednesday

    Taylor (knee) is starting Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

    Taylor missed Tuesday's game due to a bone bruise in his left knee, but he'll start in right field and bat seventh during Wednesday's series finale. He's gone just 1-for-17 with two runs, two RBI and 12 strikeouts over his last five games.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Already showing improvement

    The bone bruise in Taylor's left knee has improved, and the utilityman was able to participate in warmups and take batting practice Tuesday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    Taylor left Monday's game against the Pirates after fouling a ball off his left knee and was subsequently diagnosed with a bone bruise. The Dodgers have indicated that the 31-year-old is day-to-day and may not need a trip to the injured list, and that appears to be a viable scenario given his quick improvement. Taylor had been struggling before the injury, going just 1-for-17 with 12 strikeouts over his previous five games.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: On bench Tuesday

    Taylor (knee) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Taylor will take a seat for the second game of the series after suffering a bone bruise in his left knee in Monday's 5-1 win. Gavin Lux will pick up a start in left field in place of Taylor, who the Dodgers are viewing as day-to-day with the hope that he'll avoid a trip to the 10-day injured list.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Dealing with bone bruise

    Taylor has been diagnosed with a bone bruise on his left knee and will be considered day-to-day, Matthew Moreno of Dodger Blue reports.

    He fouled a ball off his left knee, which doesn't seem to have resulted in a fracture, but bone bruises can still be nagging issues sometimes. He'll likely be re-evaluated Tuesday morning to determine his availability for the second game of the series.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Exits early

    Taylor left Monday's game against the Pirates due to an apparent left knee injury, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Taylor fouled a ball off his knee during his at-bat in the top of the sixth inning, and while he was able to finish the at-bat, he was pulled in the bottom half of the frame. He was already scheduled for an off day Tuesday, per Juan Toribio of MLB.com, so he figures to get a day off before the team looks to get him back into the starting lineup.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Knocks in two runs

    Taylor went 2-for-3 with two RBI in Tuesday's 3-1 win over San Francisco.

    Taylor's second-inning single knocked in a pair of runs in the low-scoring contest. The utilityman has settled into an outfield role this season, as he has logged all of his playing time between left field, right field and DH. Though he has only one long ball this season, Taylor has contributed a .304/.367/.464 slash line along with six doubles, 11RBI, seven runs and two steals.

Despite the lack of homers, Taylor is slashing a solid .288/.362/.441 with an OPS over .800, a threshold he's only reached twice in his previous nine seasons.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Notches first theft

    Taylor went 1-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base in a victory versus Minnesota on Tuesday.

    Taylor's seventh-inning triple was his first of the campaign and pushed his hitting streak to open the season to three games. He's batted out of the bottom third of the order in each of his appearances thus far but has been one of the Dodgers' best hitters with a .455/.462/.818 slash line over 13 plate appearances. Taylor is hitting out of the No. 6 slot for the first time this season in Wednesday's contest against the Twins.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Doubles in series finale

    Taylor went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's 9-4 loss to Colorado.

    Taylor sat out in Saturday's matchup but returned to the lineup for Sunday's series finale. Although he committed a fielding error in the bottom of the first inning that resulted in three unearned runs in the frame, the 31-year-old was the only player to record an extra-base hit for the Dodgers in the loss. Taylor now has a double in each of his first two appearances this season.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Taylor isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rockies, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Taylor went 2-for-4 with a double, a run and a strikeout Friday, but he'll get a breather during the second game of the year. Gavin Lux will shift to left field while Edwin Rios enters the lineup as the designated hitter.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: May primarily play LF

    Taylor will get the "bulk of the playing time" in left field for the Dodgers following the trade of AJ Pollock, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Pollock was slated to open the season as the team's primary left fielder while Taylor was expected to rotate at different positions, but that plan has somewhat shifted with Pollock's move to Chicago. Taylor's versatility should still lead to him seeing time around the field, and Harris notes that Gavin Lux is also likely play some in left field, though not in a straight platoon. Taylor's fantasy managers should expect the utility man to get plenty of playing time this season.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Back in Cactus League lineup

    Taylor (elbow) will start at second base and bat seventh in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Reds, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    As anticipated, Taylor will make his return to the Cactus League lineup Tuesday after his right elbow checked out fine coming out of his appearance in a minor-league game Monday. Taylor, who had the elbow scoped in the offseason, has been eased along early in spring training following the procedure, but he'll still have ample time to get the at-bats he needs to guarantee his availability for Opening Day. The versatile Taylor should handle a near-everyday role once again in 2022 while bouncing between multiple positions, though second base looks to be his primary home when Los Angeles is at full strength.
