Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Chris Taylor will be part of the Dodgers centerfield equation to open the season.
Taylor appears to have the edge to open the season as the Dodgers centerfielder, but Jason Heyward and Trayce Thompson among others are also expected to see opportunities throughout spring training.
Chris Taylor went 3-for-4 Friday, singling three times, scoring two runs, and driving in two runs in the Dodgers' 10-1 win over the Rockies.
Taylor has picked up hits in four of his last five games for the Dodgers, scoring two runs and driving in three runs in that span. The outfielder has struggled to produce consistently at the plate, hitting .221 with 10 stolen bases, 45 runs scored, 10 home runs, and 43 runs batted in through 118 games this season.
Chris Taylor went 1-for-3 at the plate on Monday night, hitting a three-run homer, and striking out once as the Dodgers went on to beat the Diamondbacks in a 5-2 game.
Taylor hit his 10th homer of the year on Monday, raising his RBI total to 40 in the process, both numbers which rank below league average. The Dodgers' outfielder has swung the bat at a rather mediocre rate this season with a BA of .226 and an OPS of .698. The 32-year-old should not be started in fantasy as he has struggled to provide consistent enough value to warrant it.
Chris Taylor went 1-for-4 at the plate on Sunday, hitting a solo homer, and striking out once as the Dodgers went on to pummel the Padres in a 11-2 game.
Taylor's home run Sunday boosted his total to a rather small amount of nine on the season, which ranks well below league average. The Dodgers' utility man is batting .22 on the season with an OPS of .690, both of which also rank well below league average. The 32-year-old has had a tough time behind the plate this season as he is striking out a rather high 35.8% of the time, for now he should be viewed as nothing more than the occasional stream play.
Chris Taylor went 1-for-4 at the plate on Thursday, hitting a two-run RBI double, and striking out twice as the Dodgers went on to lose to the Mets in a 5-3 game.
Taylor has been rather quiet this season as he has hit just eight home runs, with just 34 runs driven in this year. The Dodgers' utility man is batting just .224 with an OPS of .693, which certainly doesn't rank well across the league. The 32-year-old can be rostered in fantasy, but it is purely due to his being able to play on the best offense in baseball.
