Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told the media that utility player Chris Taylor has been dealing with "a neck thing" as of late.
The Dodgers do not believe that Taylor will require any sort of stint on the injured list. Through 135 games this year, he is slashing .258/.346/.450 with 20 homers, 72 RBI, 58 walks, 157 strikeouts, and 13 stolen bases. However, he has struggled as of late, hitting just 4-for-51 over his last 15 contests. Still, the 31-year-old is rostered in 97 percent of ESPN leagues and ranks 113th among all hitters in the latest rest-of-season ECR.

Taylor capped off the Dodgers' four-run first inning with a two-run homer off Miles Mikolas. It was his only hit of the ball game and his third long ball in the last 15 games. Taylor has slowed down at the plate over that span, slashing just .151/.220/.340 over the last 53 at-bats.

Taylor was having a rough day at the plate before tying up the ball game in the ninth inning with an RBI single off Jake McGee. The run sent the game to extra-innings where the Dodgers would go on to lose. Taylor has been struggling at the dish over the last 15 contests, hitting a meager .184/.281/.327 with a pair of home runs. He's also just 2-for-22 over the last seven contests. Taylor has a proven track record of success so there's no reason to think he won't snap out of the slump sooner than later.
