Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Competing for time at second base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor is among a group of Dodgers vying for playing time at second base this season, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Though many expected top prospect Gavin Lux to claim second base as his own in 2020, Gurnick indicates that the position had yet to be settled when spring training was suspended. Among veterans on the club, Taylor (20) trailed both Enrique Hernandez (85) and Max Muncy (70) in games played at second base last season. Nonetheless, Taylor's defensive versatility enabled him to log 414 plate appearances without having a set position.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Returns from shoulder soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

He missed the last few games with a sore shoulder, but it was apparently a minor issue. Taylor is poised to reprise his utility role from last season.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Not playing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (shoulder) won't return to Cactus League action Friday against the Mariners, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.,

Manager Dave Roberts indicated earlier this week Taylor could return for Friday's game, but he's not ready to retake the field. The 29-year-old has been taking batting practice but wants be sure he's fully recovered before attempting to play in games.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Could return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Taylor (shoulder) might return Friday against the Mariners, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Taylor is nursing a sore shoulder, which he picked up after getting hit by a pitch earlier in camp. Even if he doesn't play in Friday's Cactus League game, it sounds like Taylor is on the cusp of a return. Once healthy, he figures to fill a super-utility role for the Dodgers.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Nursing sore shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Taylor is dealing with a sore shoulder, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

It was originally thought that Taylor suffered a setback in his recovery from a sore right forearm, which slowed him earlier in camp, but it turns out the issue is actually related to his shoulder. Regardless of the injury, Taylor said he isn't planning on returning to game action until he's feeling 100 percent. Once healthy, he's expected to fill a super-utility role for the Dodgers.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Suffers forearm setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor suffered a setback in his recovery from a sore right forearm Wednesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Taylor is not planning on returning to game action until he's feeling 100 percent. The 29-year-old originally irritated his forearm/biceps on a check swing during a Feb. 27 Cactus League game against the Cubs. Taylor is expected to begin the season in a utility role, given his versatility and experience playing every position except first base and catcher.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Playing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (forearm) will bat leadoff and start in left field during Thursday's Cactus League game against the Indians, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Taylor didn't appear in any of the Dodgers' past three spring games after irritating his forearm/biceps on a check swing during the Sunday's 4-2 win over the Cubs. The utility man looks to be healthy again after a few days off and shouldn't have his preparation for the regular season derailed because of the injury.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Dealing with arm irritation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor is nursing an irritated forearm and biceps, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The injury was suffered as a result of a check swing, and Taylor has missed three straight Cactus League games as a result. However, he took live batting practice Wednesday and could return to game action Thursday. Taylor will fill a utility role with the Dodgers again this season.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Signs two-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor and the Dodgers avoided arbitration by agreeing to a two-year deal Friday.

Taylor will make $13.4 million over the two seasons, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. The deal doesn't buy out any of Taylor's free-agent seasons but saves the two parties from having to go through the arbitration process next season. Taylor lines up to play frequently in a flexible role again this season after hitting .262/.333/.462 in 414 plate appearances in 2019.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor is starting in right field in Game 1 of the National League Division Series on Thursday, batting fifth.

Taylor will receive the start in right field for the first game of the NLDS against southpaw Patrick Corbin. Joc Pederson is on the bench Thursday.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Joining Game 1 lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor will be in the lineup for Game 1 of the NLDS against the Nationals on Thursday, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

Taylor will receive the starting nod with southpaw Patrick Corbin taking the mound for Washington, though it's not official which position he'll play. The utility man had a .262/.333/462 slash line with 12 home runs and eight stolen bases in 124 games.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Belts 12th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a victory over San Diego on Wednesday.

Taylor got the start in left field and slugged a solo homer to right field in his first at-bat. The long ball snapped a 16-game homerless streak during which Taylor hit a meek .167 in 42 at-bats. Overall, the 29-year-old is slashing .258/.326/.452 with 12 home runs and 52 RBI in 398 plate appearances this season.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.

Taylor had started in each of the past five games, with three of those turns coming at the hot corner. With Justin Turner (ankle) back in the lineup at third base for the second straight day after being sidelined for nearly two weeks, Taylor's path to everyday at-bats now looks somewhat muddled. The versatile utility man should at least continue to see steady work versus left-handed starting pitching.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Knocks in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor went 1-for-2 with a double, two RBI and a run scored Friday night against the Mets.

Taylor didn't draw the start, but he drove home a pair of runs in the seventh inning to put the Dodgers up 6-1. The 29-year-old utility man was just 1-for-16 over his last six games entering the series opener, so Friday's performance was a step in the right direction.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (foot) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Taylor was held out Tuesday after fouling a ball off his foot in Monday's contest, but that will be the extent of his absence for now. Taylor will start in left field and hit eighth in the Dodgers' batting order Wednesday night.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Dealing with sore left foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor did not play Tuesday due to lingering discomfort after fouling a ball off his left foot Monday, Matthew Moreno of DodgerBlue1958 reports.

Taylor stayed in the game after fouling a ball off his foot Monday but was sore enough to warrant a spot on the bench Tuesday. He was reportedly available to pinch hit, however, suggesting that the injury is minor. Taylor is hitting .270 with 11 home runs, 47 RBI and seven steals in 103 games this season.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Two homers Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor went 3-for-5 with a pair of solo home runs in the Dodgers' 16-9 win over the Rockies on Monday.

Taylor checked in with his 10th and 11th long balls of the season, cranking solo shots off Yency Almonte in the fourth inning and Jake McGee in the seventh. He's been hot since coming off the injured list Aug. 20, as he's hitting .326 with three homers, three doubles and six RBI over 46 at-bats since returning to the lineup. Overall, Taylor is slashing .270/.339/.482 across 307 at-bats on the season.

Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Explodes in first game back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run, three runs scored, four RBI and a walk in the Dodgers' 16-3 rout of the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

In his first game after being activated from the 10-day injured list with a forearm injury, Taylor absolutely exploded in the Dodgers' 16-run outburst, blasting a three-run homer for his ninth of the season as part of a three-hit, four RBI day. The 28-year-old is slashing .268/.342/.468 across 265 at-bats, and this huge performance shows he's fully healthy coming off the injury.

August 20, 2019 05:20 PM
Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Activated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (forearm) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Taylor will likely assume a quasi-bench role, given the amount of strong producers the Dodgers have all over the field, but he will probably get at least a couple starts per week. He hit .362 with three home runs and three steals in his 20 games prior to landing on the shelf, but is hitting .261/.334/.452 on the season.

August 18, 2019 08:28 PM
Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Expected to return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (forearm) is expected to be reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Taylor began a rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday and has gone 5-for-10 with a homer and four RBI in three games with the Quakes. He is slated to be in their lineup for the final time Sunday before likely rejoining the big club Tuesday. Taylor has been on the IL since suffering a fractured forearm July 14.
