Taylor will start in right field and bat third Sunday against the Marlins.
He'll be picking up his fourth start in a row Sunday, with two of them coming versus right-handed pitchers and two versus lefties. Taylor doesn't yet appear to have seized a full-time role, as Milwaukee is likely to roll with Jackie Bradley, Avisail Garcia and Lorenzo Cain as its primary starters in the outfield while Christian Yelich (back) is on the shelf.
Taylor was recalled by the Brewers on Tuesday.
Taylor has hit .323/.400/.581 in 35 plate appearances for the Brewers this season but was optioned to the minors on Monday when Christian Yelich (back) returned from the injured list. Yelich was sent right back to the injured list Tuesday, so Taylor is set to get more opportunities with the major-league squad. He'll bat sixth and start in right field Tuesday against the Phillies.
Taylor was optioned to the Brewers' alternate training site Monday.
Taylor impressed in his time on the big-league roster, hitting .323/.400/.581 in 35 plate appearances. He's no longer needed with both Christian Yelich (back) and Lorenzo Cain (quadriceps) returning from the injured list, so he'll head to the minors to get regular at-bats and stay fresh for the next time the team needs another outfielder.
Taylor went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, three RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Marlins.
Taylor thrived in the leadoff role with manager Craig Counsell deciding to give Kolten Wong the day off. The 27-year-old went back-to-back with pitcher Adrian Houser in the second inning to give his team a 2-1 lead. He would later get his second RBI on a groundout in the fourth and then capped off his stellar night with an RBI single to right. Taylor now has consecutive multi-hit games for the first time in his young career and is slashing .474/.565/.895 with two home runs, seven RBI and two runs scored in 11 games as a fill-in for the injured Christian Yelich (back) and Lorenzo Cain (quadriceps).
Taylor went 1-for-1 with a solo home run during Monday's 3-1 win over the Padres.
Taylor came up to the plate to begin the eighth as a pinch hitter and drove a Drew Pomeranz fastball 440 feet over the fence in right to extend the Brewers' lead to 3-1. It was the 27-year-old's first home run and second hit overall since being called up April 14, as he'll continue to hold a depth role while Lorenzo Cain (quadriceps) is on the 10-day injured list.
Taylor was recalled from the Brewers' alternate training site Wednesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Taylor was unable to break camp with the big-league club to begin the regular season, but he'll now serve as outfield depth after Lorenzo Cain (quadriceps) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. Taylor appeared in 22 games for the Brewers last season and hit .237 with two home runs and six RBI.
The Brewers optioned Taylor to their alternate training site Wednesday.
Taylor lost out to Billy McKinney in the battle for the fifth and final spot in the Milwaukee outfield. The 27-year-old exited his final Cactus League game last weekend with a bruised thigh, but the Brewers' decision to option him rather than placing him on the injured list implies that he's healthy now.
Taylor suffered a bruised thigh during Saturday's spring game and will be held out for the final exhibition Tuesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Taylor isn't expected to miss much time as a result of the injury. He's played well for Milwaukee during the spring, hitting .293 with two home runs, four RBI and a stolen base, but he's unlikely to make the Opening Day roster with the abundance of outfield depth the Brewers currently possess.
Taylor added strength this offseason and has impressed the team, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Manager Craig Counsell noted that Taylor has made the case to stick in the major leagues. A well-regarded prospect several years ago, Taylor managed only 53 plate appearances in the majors as he enters his age-27 season. The addition of Jackie Bradley makes Taylor's path to a roster spot more difficult, though he is vying with Billy McKinney for the fifth outfielder role.
Taylor went 2-for-3 with a home run in Sunday's spring opener.
Taylor held his own last year in his first extended look at the big-league level, and he got his 2021 spring off to a good start. The Brewers' starting outfield is set as long as everyone is healthy, but a quality exhibition campaign could help Taylor open the regular season as the club's fourth outfielder.
Taylor went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Tuesday in the Brewers' 3-2 win over the Reds.
Taylor's two-out blast in the fifth inning cut Milwaukee's deficit in half and represented the only offense the Brewers could muster against Reds starter Sonny Gray. After catching fire at the plate with four hits in the Brewers' Sept. 9 blowout win over the Tigers, Taylor had been struck in a 2-for-18 slump over his past 10 games before coming through with the clutch homer Tuesday.
Taylor went 4-for-5 with a home run, two doubles, three runs and three RBI during Wednesday's 19-0 win at Detroit.
The 26-year-old was called up by the Brewers at the start of September and had one hit through his first eight at-bats, but he busted out with the rest of the offense Wednesday. Taylor should operate in a reserve role during September if Christian Yelich, Avisail Garcia, Ryan Braun and Ben Gamel can remain healthy.
Taylor was recalled by the Brewers on Tuesday.
Taylor appeared in 15 games for the Brewers last season, and he'll return to the active roster after Jedd Gyorko was placed on the bereavement list Tuesday. He impressed at the team's alternate training site this year but should serve in a depth role during his time in the big leagues.
Taylor (wrist) was optioned to the Brewers' alternate training site roster Saturday.
After undergoing a left wrist procedure in November, Taylor was unable to appear in Cactus League games. After Saturday's move, he'll report to the Brewers' alternate training site ahead of the abbreviated 2020 season. Despite his absence from major-league camp, the 26-year-old will remain eligible for the regular season, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Taylor (wrist) will not play in any Cactus League games this spring, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Taylor underwent a surgical procedure on his left wrist in November, and it turns out the 26-year-old will miss the start of the 2020 season as a result. The tentative plan is for Taylor to resume baseball activities near the beginning of March before progressing to rehab games in April.
Updating a previous report, Taylor will be limited to begin spring training while he recovers from an offseason left wrist procedure, and he's uncertain to be ready for Opening Day, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Taylor broke some news when he told reporters at the "Brewers On Deck" event over the weekend that he required the procedure during the winter, something the organization hadn't previously disclosed. While Taylor said he would be ready to go for the start of spring training, the Brewers are apparently planning to take a more cautious approach with the 25-year-old. Taylor is in contention for an reserve role with the big club, though Ben Gamel's ability to play all three spots in the outfield could prompt manager Craig Counsell to carry only four outfielders on the Opening Day roster.
Taylor said Sunday that he's fully healthy heading into spring training after undergoing a procedure to address a wrist injury earlier in the offseason, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Taylor's offseason surgery previously went unreported, but the 26-year-old's comment that he'll be ready for the spring suggests the procedure wasn't a significant one. Though he saw limited use for the Brewers as a September callup last season, Taylor finds himself up a spot higher on the organizational outfield depth chart entering 2020 after Trent Grisham was dealt to San Diego in November.
Taylor has made the Brewers' wild-card roster.
Taylor made his big-league debut in early September and went 4-for-10 in limited action down the stretch. He'll likely be a bench option Tuesday against the Nationals.
Taylor was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio on Saturday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Ryan Braun (back) and Lorenzo Cain (knee) are both hurting, so Taylor will come up to bolster the team's outfield depth. It will be Taylor's first stint in the majors. He missed some time with a wrist injury and his numbers at Triple-A represent a step back from his performance at that level in 2018.
Taylor is on the verge of returning to action for Triple-A San Antonio after suffering a wrist injury in May, Joe Alexander of 210gameday.com reports.
Taylor has missed just over three weeks with his injury, but he's slated to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with the Brewers' rookie-level affiliate in Arizona. Once he gets in a few games at the lower rungs of the minors, Taylor should be cleared to rejoin San Antonio a few days later. Taylor posted an .889 OPS in April, but a May swoon resulted in his season mark dropping to .732 before he got hurt.
