Taylor is dealing with a non-displaced fracture on the outside of his forearm and is expected to miss the next 4-to-6 weeks, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Taylor's timetable certainly isn't set in stone at this point, though 4-to-6 weeks is the general timetable for his injury, per Plunkett. He'd be on track to return in mid-to-late August if the timeframe holds true.
Taylor was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday due to a fractured left forearm, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Taylor was hit by a pitch on his left wrist in the 12th inning of Sunday night's matchup with the Red Sox, and after undergoing further testing, it's been revealed that he's suffered a broken forearm. The Dodgers have yet to announce a timeline for the utility man's return, but considering the nature of the injury, he'll likely require a lengthy stay on the shelf. Matt Beaty was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.
Taylor will undergo another X-ray on his left wrist Monday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Taylor left Sunday's game against the Red Sox after getting hit by a pitch in the wrist. Initial X-rays were negative, but the wrist remains very sore, so the Dodgers will send him for more tests.
Taylor was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Red Sox after being hit by a pitch on his left wrist, though his X-rays returned negative, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
While it's good news that Taylor managed to avoid any structural damage, he could miss time. The Dodgers may have a better idea of his availability moving forward sometime Monday.
Taylor (illness) is back in the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Taylor was withheld from Tuesday's lineup due to illness and general fatigue, but Taylor ended up coming off the bench and drawing one of five consecutive walks for the Dodgers in their walkoff win. He will slot into the three hole, a spot he's rarely occupied this season (eight at-bats).
Manager Dave Roberts said after Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks that Taylor was withheld from the lineup due to an illness and general fatigue, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.
Despite being under the weather, Taylor was available off the bench and entered the game in the top of the eighth inning as a defensive replacement for Joc Pederson. He then went on to draw one of five consecutive walks for the Dodgers in the bottom of the ninth, helping the team secure a come-from-behind walkoff win. The Dodgers will presumably assess Taylor's condition when he reports to the ballpark Wednesday afternoon before determining whether he's fit to rejoin the starting nine in the series finale.
Taylor isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Arizona.
Taylor stayed hot at the dish Sunday with another extra-base knock, but he's in line for a day off Tuesday. Enrique Hernandez will draw the start at shortstop and hit sixth with Taylor riding the pine.
Taylor is not in Saturday's lineup against the Rockies.
Taylor takes a seat amid a scorching hot streak. He is hitting .500 with three home runs and two steals over his last 40 at-bats. Enrique Hernandez will start at shortstop and hit seventh against righty Jon Gray.
Taylor went 4-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and one RBI during Thursday's 12-8 win over the Rockies.
Taylor led the assault on Rockies pitching in this one, notching his first four-hit game in nearly two years. This outstanding effort continues a hot streak in which Taylor has gone 18-of-35 (.514) with three home runs and 14 RBI over his last 10 games. He's in a good spot to continue his recent form over the rest of the four-game set at Coors Field this weekend.
Taylor went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, an RBI and two stolen bases Tuesday in the Dodgers' 3-2 win over the Diamondbacks.
Taylor's RBI double in the top of the sixth inning proved to be the decisive run of the night, but his fantasy managers likely took greater notice of his contributions on the basepaths. The 28-year-old hadn't even attempted a steal since June 2, but his great wheels -- he ranks in the 89th percentile of all players this season in terms of sprint speed, per Baseball Savant -- should earn him a green light when he identifies a good opportunity to run. Taylor will bat sixth in the series finale Wednesday and man shortstop, where he's been a regular the past two weeks with Corey Seager (hamstring) on the shelf.
Taylor went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run in a victory over the Rockies on Sunday.
Taylor came on as a pinch hitter for Austin Barnes with two runners on base in the seventh inning and promptly turned a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 lead when he deposited Chad Bettis' first pitch into the left field bleachers. His third career pinch-hit home run was also his eighth homer season, half of which have come in June. After struggling to the tune of a .162 average over his first 32 games, Taylor has rebounded to post an overall slash line of .245/ .315/.447 in 208 at-bats this season. He has been particularly hot of late, hitting .500 (10-for-20) with three home runs and 10 RBI over his last six games.
Taylor is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Taylor started the last seven games at shortstop with Corey Seager (hamstring) on the injured list, and he went 10-for-24 with three doubles and two homers in that stretch. The 28-year-old heads to the bench Sunday while Enrique Hernandez takes over at shortstop.
Taylor went 3-for-4 with a double, two home runs and another run scored in Wednesday's 9-2 victory over the Giants.
Taylor launched a three-run homer off Drew Pomeranz in the first inning, then swatted a solo shot in the fifth. He also added a ground-rule double in the third inning to cap off a record-breaking night with his first career multi-homer game. The 28-year-old has been acquitting himself well while filling in for Corey Seager (hamstring) and is batting .235/.304/.429 with seven home runs, 29 RBI and 25 runs scored this season.
Taylor is not in Saturday's lineup against the Cubs, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Taylor is hitting .146 with 16 strikeouts, one home run and one steal in 12 games this month. Matt Beaty will start at first base and Max Muncy will slide over to second base while Enrique Hernandez starts at shortstop.
Taylor is expected to step in as the Dodgers' everyday shortstop with Corey Seager likely to miss multiple weeks after suffering a strained hamstring in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Angels, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Since manager Dave Roberts named Enrique Hernandez the team's primary second baseman out of spring training, Taylor has been pushed into a utility role that has limited him to 43 starts (across four different positions) through the Dodgers' first 68 games. The lack of steady action has probably played a part in Taylor's disappointing .218/.283/.391 batting line, but the 28-year-old will warrant more attention in the fantasy realm now that he's on track to get his first extended opportunity of the season to handle full-time duties. Seager is slated to undergo an MRI later Tuesday, at which point it should become more apparent how long Taylor might be in line to stick around as a lineup regular.
Taylor went 2-for-4 with two RBI, one run and a double in Monday's loss to the Angels.
Taylor's two-hit performance was his first multi-hit game since May 27 -- even factoring in Monday's production, he's still just 7-for-38 since that date. His numbers in 2019 have been underwhelming, in part because he's only playing part time between the outfield and middle infield. The 28-year-old's run was his 18th of the season, putting him on pace for just 44 after he scored 85 runs in both 2017 and 2018.
Taylor went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Giants.
Taylor is up to five homers on the year after accounting for all of the Dodgers' offense Friday. The utility man has run hot and cold all year, and he's riding a stretch where he's gone 5-for-29 over his last 10 games. For the season, he's hitting .225 with 17 runs scored and 21 RBI.
Taylor went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and two RBI to help the Dodgers to a 9-5 victory over the Mets on Monday.
Taylor checked in with his fourth long ball of the season with a solo shot off Tyler Bashlor in the sixth inning as part of a three-hit day. It was his third straight start with multiple hits, a stretch that has helped Taylor boost his slash line to .237/.308/.405 through 131 at-bats.
Taylor is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Taylor was productive in the first two games of the series in Pittsburgh, recording a pair of hits in both contests while crossing home plate three times. While the recent surge is encouraging to see for a player that has largely struggled offensively this season, Taylor remains a short-side platoon player for the Dodgers. His playing-time situation isn't likely to take a turn for the better unless the Dodgers lose one of their full-time infielders or outfielders to an injury.
Taylor is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.
After opening May with four multi-hit performance in five starts, Taylor has cooled off with one hit in 12 at-bats over his last four appearances. He'll stick on the bench for a second straight game and looks like he'll continue to be limited to a short-side platoon role when the Dodgers have their full complement of position players.
