Taylor (shoulder) is doing much better and hopes for a brief stay on the injured list, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Taylor landed on the injured list with a right shoulder strain Saturday, but his injury is unlikely to require a lengthy absence. The 27-year-old is eligible to return during the team's upcoming series in Arizona, and he should take on a depth role in the outfield once he's back in action.
The Brewers placed Taylor on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a strained right shoulder.
Utility man Tim Lopes was recalled from Triple-A Nashville to take Taylor's spot on the active roster. The 27-year-old Taylor had been working as a fourth outfielder for Milwaukee of late, with most of his starts coming against left-handed pitching. Lopes could be a candidate to serve as a short-side platoon partner with lefty-hitting center fielder Jackie Bradley while Taylor is on the shelf.
Taylor went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Tuesday's 10-7 loss to the Tigers.
The two teams combined for nine homers on the night, and Taylor joined in the barrage in his first game since returning to the big-league roster. On the season, the 27-year-old is slashing .218/.307/.449 with five home runs and 12 RBI in 88 plate appearances, and he could handle a short-side platoon role in the Milwaukee outfield with Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) back on the IL.
Taylor was recalled from Triple-A Nashville Tuesday.
With Lorenzo Cain landing on the 10-day IL Tuesday with a strained right hamstring, Taylor will head back to the majors just a week after being optioned to Nashville. The outfielder will look to find greater success at the plate after slashing just .203/.298/.365 through 84 major-league plate appearances so far this season.
Taylor was optioned to Triple-A Nashville ahead of Tuesday's game against the Padres.
Taylor's demotion is less than shocking, considering he's slashed just .203/.298/.365 across 84 plate appearances this season. Eric Yardley was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and will take Taylor's roster spot.
Taylor is out of the lineup Sunday against Atlanta.
Taylor started the past two games while mired in an 0-for-12 slump. Jackie Bradley, Lorenzo Cain and Avisail Garcia will start from left to right in the outfield Sunday for Milwaukee.
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.
