Replacing the injured Corey Seager at shortstop, Taylor has batted 11-for-24 with three doubles and three homers in his last seven games and .282/.340/.542 since the start of May. He's eligible for three positions (2B, SS, and OF) in a loaded Dodgers lineup after combining for 38 homers and 26 steals in the previous two seasons. The late bloomer also has discouraging Statcast numbers, but he's worth rostering in more comprehensive mixed leagues.

Taylor hit the IL with a fractured wrist and while he isn't quite worth holding onto, he will be one to add once he returns to action for the Dodgers. As always, Taylor should provide some power and speed to go with a solid batting average and great counting stats because of the lineup he is in.
