  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: X-rays negative, likely out Sunday

    X-rays on Taylor's foot were negative, but manager Dave Roberts said he does not think Taylor will be in the lineup Sunday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    Taylor fouled a ball off his foot Saturday and eventually left the game. He has been cleared of a fracture, though Roberts said Taylor is sore, so a day off is likely in the cards. Mookie Betts (ribs) will return Sunday, and while it sounds like Betts will mostly play second base upon his return, he will fill in for Taylor in right field in the series finale.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Exits with foot contusion

    Taylor left Saturday's game against the Padres with a left foot contusion, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Trayce Thompson replaced Taylor in right field after Taylor dove for a ball that went for a Jose Azocar double in the fifth inning. Taylor also appeared to foul a ball off his foot earlier in the contest. This does not sound especially serious, but the 31-year-old has been in a bad way at the dish lately, collecting just one hit in his last 19 at-bats. The Dodgers could use this as an opportunity to rest him for a bit.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Three hits off bench

    Taylor went 3-for-3 with a double, an RBI, a stolen base and two runs scored in Sunday's 5-3 win over Atlanta.

    Taylor didn't start Sunday, but he entered the game as a pinch hitter for Eddy Alvarez in the seventh inning. In his first two at-bats, Taylor hit singles, scoring in the ninth inning, and he added a go-ahead RBI double in the 11th that accounted for the winning run. This was the utility man's fifth multi-hit effort in 21 games in June. He's batted .257 (19-for-74) this month and is slashing .254/.332/.440 with six home runs, 27 RBI, 30 runs scored and six steals in 67 contests overall. He remains the Dodgers' top left fielder this year, and he should continue to play consistently.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Unexpectedly starting Tuesday

    Taylor (face) is starting in left field and batting eighth Tuesday against the Angels, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    Manager Dave Roberts previously said Taylor wouldn't be in the lineup Tuesday after the outfielder exited Sunday's game after running into the wall in left field, but Taylor is apparently feeling well enough to start coming off Los Angeles' scheduled day off Monday. The 31-year-old is hitting well through 10 games in June with an .813 OPS.

  • Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Won't start Tuesday

    Manager Dave Roberts said after Sunday's loss to the Giants that Taylor (face) won't start Tuesday against the Angels but will be available off the bench, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    While Taylor will be out of the lineup for at least one game after exiting Sunday's matchup following a collision with the wall in left field, it doesn't seem as though he's trending toward a long-term absence. Eddy Alvarez and Hanser Alberto are candidates to enter the lineup during the series opener against the Angels.

    Taylor was removed from Sunday's game against the Giants in the bottom of the eighth inning with an apparent facial injury, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    Taylor bobbled what would have been a running catch during Sunday's matchup, and he collided with the wall in left field. The 31-year-old's sunglasses appeared to cut him near his right eye, and he exited the game after visiting with a trainer. The extent of his injury isn't yet clear, but he'll have at least one day to rest prior to Tuesday's series opener against the Angels.

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.
