Taylor went 3-for-3 with a walk, two hit-by-pitches and five runs scored in Sunday's 16-4 win over Milwaukee.

Taylor (back) will start at second base and bat fifth Sunday against the Padres.
He'll move back into the starting nine after lower-back tightness limited him to a bench role over the past three games.

He delivered a pinch-hit single and then proceeded to play the final three innings, seeing time in both center field and second base.
Taylor (back) will sit again Saturday against the Padres, but he may be able to return to the lineup Sunday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Taylor was scratched from the lineup for Thursday's season opener due to lower-back tightness and remained on the bench Friday, but it doesn't sound like he's in line for an extended absence. He owns a solid .817 OPS through 67 plate appearances this season, but the Dodgers have plenty of quality depth options to use in his place.
Taylor (back) isn't starting Friday's game against the Padres, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Taylor went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over Seattle.
Though he has gone a collective 0-for-5 over his past two games, Taylor has worked a pair of walks and converted those into two steals. The utility man's fantasy value is largely tied to his moderate power and production potential in a loaded Dodgers lineup, but his appeal will certainly increase if he continues to make waves on the basepaths.
Taylor went 0-for-2 with a stolen base, a walk and a hit by pitch in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Mariners.
Taylor walked to begin the fourth inning and wound up stealing second for his first stolen base of the season. The 30-year-old has topped 10 steals in a season just once in the first seven seasons of his career, so fantasy managers should keep expectations now for that part of his game. However, he's sitting on a solid .235/.381/.471 batting line, and after finishing with an OPS between .775 and .850 in each of the last four seasons, he should be expected to land around that level again this year.
Taylor went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 5-2 loss against the Padres.
Taylor again started in center field. His third homer of the season came off Blake Snell in the second inning, marking the only runs scored by the Dodgers Sunday. Taylor is striking out 30.2% of the time but is still batting .245, and he has scored 13 runs on the season for the Dodgers.
Taylor went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's victory over the Rockies.
The utility man played center field for the sixth time this season and hit out of the No. 3 spot. He followed a Corey Seager home run in the first inning with one of his own and also singled in the fourth. Taylor has gone 4-for-13 with a pair of homers and four RBI over his past three games.
Taylor went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 9-5 victory over Washington.
With both Mookie Betts (back) and Cody Bellinger (calf) still out of commission, Taylor manned center field and assumed the leadoff spot in the order for the third straight contest. The utility player did his best impression of his former-MVP teammates, ripping a three-run home run off Patrick Corbin in the second inning to help Los Angeles jump out to a big early lead. Taylor is once again proving invaluable to the club, slashing .273/.484/.500 with five RBI while logging time at four different positions in the early going.
Taylor went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and two runs in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Oakland.
The utility player led off in the absence of Mookie Betts (back) and raised his average to .357 in 14 at-bats this season. His team's unrivaled depth will prevent Taylor from being an everyday player, but the career .264 hitter is a reliable option when starting and should see plenty of hittable pitches as opponents try to navigate through the star-studded Dodgers lineup.
Taylor (elbow) is back in the lineup for Wednesday's game in Oakland, starting in center field and batting leadoff.
Taylor was withheld from Tuesday's 5-1 win over Oakland after exiting a day earlier when he was hit in the left elbow by a pitch, but the game off was apparently all he needed to overcome the issue. He'll be getting a look atop the lineup Wednesday with Mookie Betts resting, but Taylor will likely slot in the bottom half of the order in games when Los Angeles has all of its key regulars available.
Taylor (elbow) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the A's, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
He was hit on the elbow by a 96 mph fastball Monday, and while X-rays were negative, the Dodgers can afford to give Taylor the day off. AJ Pollock will start in left field while Gavin Lux gets the start at the keystone.
X-rays on Taylor's left elbow came back clean after he was hit by a pitch in the third inning of Monday's 10-3 win over the Athletics, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Taylor took his base after getting hit and came around to score his second run of the night, but he was removed in favor of AJ Pollock in the bottom half of the inning. Fortunately for Taylor, he was able to avoid structural damage to the elbow, with the Dodgers diagnosing him with a contusion. While Taylor appears likely to avoid a trip to the injured list, he could end up missing a game or two while he waits for the soreness to subside.
