Chris Taylor News
The Los Angeles Dodgers activated outfielder/infielder Chris Taylor (knee) from the injured list on Friday. In other moves, the Dodgers added outfielder Jake Marisnick, optioned outfielder Jonny DeLuca and moved right-hander Shelby Miller (neck) to the 60-day injured list to make room for Marisnick on the 40-man roster. Taylor wasn't in the starting lineup on Friday for the first game of the second half of the season, but he could see pretty regular playing time moving forward for the Blue. The 32-year-old veteran has only played in 59 games in 2023 and is hitting .206 (34-for-165) with 11 home runs, six doubles, a triple, 26 RBI, seven stolen bases and 28 runs scored in 182 plate appearances. Taylor's biggest draw in deeper fantasy leagues is his positional versatility.
Los Angeles Dodgers infielder/outfielder Chris Taylor (knee) began his minor league rehab assignment on Friday. Taylor played five innings in left field on Friday for the Dodgers' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate. This was his first rehab contest since landing on the injured list in mid-June due to right knee soreness. The hope is that Taylor is going to return shortly after the All-Star break. Fantasy managers will have to stay tuned for more information.
Los Angeles Dodgers infielder/outfielder Chris Taylor (knee) isn't expected to return until after the All-Star break. The 32-year-old has been out since mid-June after suffering a bone bruise in his right knee. However, he had been struggling before going down, batting just .206 with 63 strikeouts, so hopefully, the time away will help. In the meantime, he'll continue working his way back, but it's anyone's guess how long he'll be out.
The Dodgers' utility man had another productive season in 2021, hitting 20 homers with 13 steals and a .254/.344/.438 slash line in 582 plate appearances. That inspired enough confidence for the Dodgers to quickly re-sign him as a free agent, and he will figure to play another very prominent role for this team as Corey Seager departs to Texas. For fantasy purposes, he wasn't great in anything besides runs scored (92, but 76 of those were before the August addition of Trea Turner). Over the last two months of the season, Taylor hit just .187/.263/.293 with 16 runs, three homers, and three steals. His final season line seems like a pretty good indicator of what to expect in 2022, which is a mediocre fantasy player. There is a chance he could find himself at the top of the lineup once again now with Seager gone and some other question marks still being sorted out, which would be a big plus but it's not very likely happen from where we sit right now. With all this said, Taylor's ADP of 146 seems too high given that he's pedestrian in both the homers and steals categories. The batting average is also up in the air as he struck out a high clip of 29% in 2021. At this price, it would be best to leave Taylor for someone else in your league to pick up.
