Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Chris Taylor went 3-for-4 with a double, two home runs and four RBI with three runs scored in Wednesday's 9-2 victory against the San Francisco Giants. It was Taylor's first career multi-homer game. He is slashing just .235/.304/.429 with a .733 OPS across 196 at-bats. Taylor has struggled in the average department, but he is worth using in NL-only fantasy leagues while Corey Seager remains sidelined.
Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman/outfielder Chris Taylor went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Monday's 9-5 victory against the New York Mets. It's been a rough go for Taylor this season, but he is finally starting to show some signs of life. Taylor has two or more hits in three of the past four outings, going 7-for-13 with two doubles, a home run, two RBI and four runs scored over the past four outings to raise his average from .203 to .237 just since May 21. Taylor still has a long way to go to get back into the good graces of fantasy owners, but the past week has been a nice start.
Los Angeles Dodgers utility man Chris Taylor will take a seat Wednesday night against right-handed pitcher Mike Foltynewicz. The Dodgers are rolling out six lefties, as they often play the best matchups. This can cause frustration for fantasy managers, specifically ones who own either Taylor or Alex Verdugo. With A.J. Pollock (elbow) out at least six weeks, this duo will help to man the outfield. Taylor has some proven success in the past, but Verdugo is fairly new to the Dodgers with short stints in 2017 and 2018. He has played 36 games for the Dodgers this year and hit .337/.381/.573 with four home runs and one stolen base. Both are solid bench options and should get something close to everyday playing time. Just know that manager Dave Roberts will play the best matchups, so keep an eye on the lineups daily.
