Nationals' Michael Taylor: Takes seat Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

Despite collecting three hits and four stolen bases in Sunday's series finale against the Blue Jays, Taylor will head to the bench as the Nationals go with Juan Soto, Bryce Harper and Adam Eaton (from left to right) in their outfield. The 27-year-old is hitting .412/.459/.588 through 12 games this month.

Nationals' Michael Taylor: New MLB steals leader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and four stolen bases in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

He made Toronto catcher Russell Martin's afternoon a fairly miserable one, going 4-for-4 on steal attempts. Taylor now leads the majors with 21 stolen bases on the season, surging ahead of Ender Inciarte and teammate Trea Turner with this performance, and his .412/.459/.588 slash line through 12 games in June will make it very hard for Nats manager Dave Martinez to take him out of the lineup.

Nationals' Michael Taylor: Two hits in Saturday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor went 2-for-3 in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Blue Jays.

The Nationals only managed three hits on the day, but Taylor was able to stay in a groove, collecting a hit in his 13th straight start. He's hitting .333 (22-for-66) over his last 21 games with two homers, six steals, seven runs and 10 RBI, but with Adam Eaton now healthy, Taylor will continue to come off the bench a couple of times a week as manager Dave Martinez tries to squeeze four outfielders into three spots.

Nationals' Michael Taylor: Swipes 17th bag Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor went 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

He was the only Nat to reach base twice in the 2-0 loss, but his second-inning double play also snuffed out one of the team's few rallies on the day. Taylor has hit safely in 11 of his last 12 games, posting a .333/.391/.571 slash line over that stretch, and while his overall numbers on the season remain poor his 17 steals (in 19 attempts) does rank fourth in the majors, two behind MLB leader Dee Gordon. The Washington outfield is in flux following the return of Adam Eaton from the disabled list, with four viable options for three spots, but Taylor's current form at the plate and stellar defense should keep him in the lineup on a regular basis.

Nationals' Michael Taylor: Heads to bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against San Francisco, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

With the return of Adam Eaton (ankle) from the 60-day disabled list, Taylor's immediate playing time is in a little jeopardy, especially given the success of Juan Soto in left field. But Taylor has been doing all he can recently to prove that he warrants a spot in the regular lineup, hitting .310/.365/.603 with 10 RBI and 11 extra-base hits over his past 16 games. Manager Davey Martinez agrees, and prior to Saturday's contest he remarked, "I'm not sitting (Taylor)" and that he will still find a way into the starting nine on a normal basis.
