Cubs' Ben Taylor: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was reassigned to minor-league camp Thursday, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

Taylor spent 2019 with Triple-A Reno in the Diamondbacks' organization, where he posted a 5.63 ERA across 56 innings. He'll likely spend the 2020 season with Triple-A Iowa and serve as organizational depth.

Cubs' Ben Taylor: Invited to Cubs' camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor signed with the Cubs as a non-roster invitee Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Taylor has 23.1 innings of big-league experience to his name, though none of those innings came in 2019. He owns a 5.40 ERA in his limited big-league sample, pairing a 24.8 percent strikeout rate with a 9.5 percent walk rate. He posted an unimpressive 5.63 ERA in 56.0 innings for Triple-A Reno in the Diamondbacks' system last season.

Diamondbacks' Ben Taylor: Lands with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor agreed to a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on April 11, Kegan Lowe of Baseball America reports.

The Indians designated Taylor for assignment at the conclusion of spring training and ultimately granted him a release from the organization after he unclaimed on the waiver wire. The 26-year-old has yet to make his 2019 debut, but he'll presumably report to Triple-A Reno once the Diamondbacks determine he's ready to go.

Ben Taylor: Enters free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor cleared waivers Thursday and is now a free agent.

Taylor was designated for assignment last week by Cleveland and won't be making his way to Triple-A Columbus. The 26-year-old had a 2.51 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 70:9 K:BB over 57.1 innings at Triple-A last season.

Indians' Ben Taylor: Removed from roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Indians designated Taylor for assignment Thursday.

Taylor's removal from the roster clears a spot for Hanley Ramirez, who is expected to serve as the Tribe's primary designated hitter to begin the season. The 26-year-old Taylor will likely open the season at Triple-A Columbus if he goes unclaimed off waivers.

Indians' Ben Taylor: Heads to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Monday.

Taylor got to open the spring in big-league camp but never appeared likely to make the Opening Day roster. The 26-year-old has thrown 23.1 major-league innings over the last two seasons, struggling to a 5.40 ERA.

May 31, 2018 04:56 PM
Indians' Ben Taylor: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was sent down to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.

Taylor made three appearances out of the bullpen after being called up May 26. He allowed three runs on four hits with three strikeouts over 2.2 innings. Shane Bieber has been promoted to the big leagues in a corresponding move.

Indians' Ben Taylor: Brought back to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Saturday, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Taylor will take the roster spot of Oliver Drake, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding roster move. The 25-year-old Taylor owns a respectable 3.63 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 22:2 K:BB across 17.1 innings with the Clippers this season. He also owns a 2.70 ERA in 3.1 big-league innings this season. Taylor will likely pitch middle innings during his time with the big club.

Indians' Ben Taylor: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Indians optioned Taylor to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday.

Cleveland was in need of an extra body in the outfield after Bradley Zimmer (shoulder) got banged up in Saturday's loss to the Yankees, so Greg Allen was summoned from Triple-A, resulting in Taylor losing his spot on the active roster. Taylor appeared in three games during his brief stint with the big club, giving up a run and striking out five over 3.1 innings.

Indians' Ben Taylor: Recalled from Columbus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was called up from Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

In a corresponding move, the Indians designated Matt Belisle for assignment. Taylor has appeared in six games for Columbus this season, posting a 4.00 ERA and 0.67 WHIP with a 15:1 K:BB during nine innings of relief. The 25-year-old has only pitched in 14 big-league games over the course of his career -- all coming with Boston in 2017 -- but should be able to provide a little extra depth in Cleveland's bullpen.

April 2, 2018 04:12 PM
Indians' Ben Taylor: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was outrighted to Triple-A on Monday.

Taylor was designated for assignment Thursday and went unclaimed on waivers. The 26-year-old reached the majors for the first time last season, posting a 5.19 ERA in 17.1 innings. He could get another call-up at some point this season, though now that he's off the 40-man roster, he's one step further away from the big leagues.

Indians' Ben Taylor: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was designated for assignment Thursday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The Indians made a bunch of moves Opening Day, and needed to clear a couple 40-man spots. Taylor will serve as organizational bullpen depth, assuming he passes through waivers.

March 22, 2018 02:04 PM
Indians' Ben Taylor: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The 25-year-old was a long-shot to crack the Opening Day bullpen from the get-go, and even a 2.25 ERA and a 3:0 K:BB in five spring appearances weren't good enough to land a spot. He'll develop further with the Clippers, looking to improve further upon the 2.70 ERA he produced at the level last season in the Red Sox organization.

Indians' Ben Taylor: Claimed by Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was claimed off waivers by the Indians on Sunday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

Taylor was designated for assignment by the Red Sox last Sunday to open up a roster spot for Eduardo Nunez. Taylor will now report to camp with the Indians, where he'll look to crack their Opening Day bullpen. The righty has tossed just 17.1 innings in his major-league career, posting a 5.19 ERA and a 18:9 K:BB ratio with the Red Sox last season.

February 18, 2018 10:00 AM
Red Sox's Ben Taylor: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox designated Taylor for assignment Sunday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Taylor was forced off the 40-man roster following the Red Sox's re-signing of infielder Eduardo Nunez (knee). Taylor, a 25-year-old right-hander, made 14 appearances for the big club in 2017, submitting a 5.19 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 18 strikeouts across 17.1 innings.

Red Sox's Ben Taylor: Activated, optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (oblique) was activated from the 10-day DL and optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday.

The oblique injury sidelined Taylor for over a month, and while he's back to full strength now, the right-hander will have to wait a little while longer before he's returned to the major-league roster. Taylor has fared reasonably well with the big club outside of a couple of shaky outings, but there simply isn't much room for advancement in the bullpen over the rest of this season.

Red Sox's Ben Taylor: Will hit the DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor will be placed on the 10-day disabled list prior to Wednesday's game against the Mariners due to an oblique strain, Jen McCaffrey of The Springfield Republican reports.

It appears Taylor suffered the injury during his two-inning appearance Saturday against the Angels, when he yielded no runs on one hit and no walks. It's unclear how long Taylor will be sidelined, but the Red Sox will address the vacancy in the bullpen by activating Blaine Boyer (elbow) from the DL in a corresponding move.

Red Sox's Ben Taylor: Recalled from Pawtucket
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

Taylor has made 11 appearances out of the bullpen for the Red Sox this season, allowing 10 earned runs off 17 hits in just 13.2 innings of work. His 14:9 K:BB hasn't been encouraging, but the 24-year-old is just settling into a major-league role during his rookie season.

June 22, 2017 08:24 AM
Red Sox's Ben Taylor: Back with Pawtucket
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (forearm) is back with the Triple-A Pawtucket after making one rehabilitation appearance at Short-Season Lowell, Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal reports.

Taylor pitched for Lowell on Monday and was immediately transferred to Pawtucket. The right-handed reliever began the season with the Red Sox, posting a 6.59 ERA over 11 games in two stints with the parent club.

June 21, 2017 01:52 PM
Red Sox's Ben Taylor: Begins rehab assignment Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (forearm) began a minor-league rehab assignment with short-season Lowell on Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Taylor tossed a scoreless inning with a strikeout and a walk during his first rehab appearance since being shut down with forearm soreness on June 5. It's unclear as to how many more rehab appearances he's slated to make before returning to Triple-A Pawtucket, but he's certainly trending in the right direction.
