3B,SS,LF - Los Angeles Dodgers
Dodgers utility player Chris Taylor is back in the starting lineup Thursday versus the Giants.
Taylor didn't start Wednesday's series finale against the Tigers but will return to hit seventh and man left field on Thursday. The veteran has hit .236 but has provided power and speed with 15 homers and 16 stolen base across 110 games.
Chris Taylor's season-long struggles continue, as he maintains a low batting average of .233 with a high strikeout rate of 0.322 and a low walk rate of 0.112.
However, his ability to produce in key moments, demonstrated by his 46 RBI and 15 home runs, keeps him relevant in fantasy leagues despite his overall underwhelming numbers.
Taylor's season-long struggles continue with a .227 batting average, 14 home runs, and 104 strikeouts in 98 games played.
His fantasy value remains limited due to his low batting average and high strikeout rate.
Dodgers utility player Chris Taylor is not in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the D-backs.
Taylor had a monster night at the plate on Tuesday, going 3-for-5 with two doubles, a run, an RBI, and a stolen base as part of his team's 9-1 victory. He will sit on Wednesday, however, while he's hitting .228 with 13 homers, 13 steals, and a .744 OPS across 303 trips to the plate.
Chris Taylor is not in the lineup for the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Cincinnati Reds Sunday.
Taylor will receive Sunday’s series finale off for rest reasons, with Kike Hernandez starting at second base and batting eighth for manager Dave Roberts against the Reds Sunday.
