Dodgers Avoid Arbitration With Chris Taylor, Others

The Los Angeles Dodgers avoided salary arbitration on Friday with infielder/outfielder Chris Taylor, outfielders Kike Hernandez and Joc Pederson and relief pitchers Pedro Baez, Josh Fields and Yimi Garcia by signing them to undisclosed one-year deals. Taylor is the most attractive fantasy piece of the bunch because of his ability to player almost anywhere on the diamond and his modest power-speed game. The 28-year-old hit .254/.331/.444 with 17 home runs, 63 RBI, 85 runs scored and nine steals in 2018, but he also led the National League with 178 punchouts. It was a disappointment after he slugged 21 round-trippers in 2017. Taylor is a Swiss Army knife for depth in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Both Hernandez and Pederson have limited ceilings as platoon players for the Dodgers.

Chris Taylor Out Of Lineup In Game 3

Los Angeles Dodgers infielder/outfielder Chris Taylor is not in the starting lineup for Game 3 of the National League Championship Series against Brewers right-hander Jhoulys Chacin. Cody Bellinger will start in center field and hit fifth. Taylor has been hot this postseason, going 6-for-12 with a triple, homer, four runs scored and three RBI, but he'll take a seat against the righty. Both Joc Pederson, who is leading off, and Bellinger will be popular DFS picks. Bellinger is 5-for-12 (.417) with a triple, two homers and five RBI in his career against Chacin, while Pederson has three hits in 13 at-bats, with two of those hits being homers.

Chris Taylor Stays Hot In NLCS Game 2

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder/second baseman Chris Taylor provided more offensive production from the top of the lineup in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Brewers. Taylor went 2-for-4 with two singles and a run scored. The 28-year-old has been clutch in the playoffs to this point, hitting .500 with a home run, three RBI, and four runs scored. Taylor's hot bat, coupled with his ability to play multiple positions has made him an important asset to the Dodgers' postseason lineup.
