Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Solo blast Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor went 2-for-2 with a solo home run Saturday against the Rockies.

Taylor took Kyle Freeland deep in the fifth inning to record his 15th home run of the season. It was his first home run since August 24 and only his fourth since the All-Star break. While Taylor's 15 home runs and nine stolen bases are useful, he has failed to follow up his breakout 2017 season with equal results and is losing at-bats as a result.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Solid line in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor started in left field and went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and a pair of runs scored in Tuesday's 11-4 win over the Mets.

Taylor had been situated on the bench for the Dodgers' last four games, marking his longest healthy absence from the lineup this season. The super-utility man's offensive struggles in August (.185/.272/.321) combined with an expanded September roster have caused the drastic dip in playing time. Taylor had been a serviceable fantasy asset this season with a .245/.322/.430 slash line to go along with 14 homers and nine steals, but the drop in consistent playing time severely limits his appeal down the stretch.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Steals base in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor started in center field and went 1-for-5 with his seventh stolen base of the season in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Giants.

Taylor was thrown out on his first steal attempt in the seventh inning, but he redeemed himself by swiping second in the ninth. The super-utility man has been situated on the bench in two of the Dodgers' last five games, but he has been able to maintain semi-regular playing time following the club's trade deadline acquisitions despite no longer having a concrete starting position.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Plays role of hero Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor went 1-for-3 with solo home run in Thursday's comeback win over the Rockies.

Taylor took Rockies' closer Wade Davis deep to lead off the top of the ninth inning, giving the Dodgers a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The 27-year-old started in left field Thursday, but he has played all over the diamond while starting the club's last six contests. Despite his recent run of playing time, Taylor figures to miss a start or two per week as manager Dave Roberts continues to juggle his surplus of positional talent.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Could see dip in playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dodgers' big trade deadline acquisitions could force Taylor into a backup super-utility role, according to ESPN's Alden Gonzalez.

Taylor has served as the Dodgers' starting center fielder and shortstop for the majority of the year, but the additions of Manny Machado and Brian Dozier along with the impending return of Justin Turner (groin) will leave the 27-year-old without a starting position. Taylor's performance this season hasn't warranted a reduction in playing time (.253/.327/.445 with 12 homers, 50 RBI and 63 runs); this is simply a situation of there being too many cooks in the kitchen. His ability to play multiple positions on the infield and outfield should keep him in enough games to not completely fall off the fantasy map, even in a reduced super-utility role.
