Dodgers utilityman Chris Taylor has suffered a setback in his recovery from a forearm injury, MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick reports. He’ll be held out of action until his forearm is back to 100 percent. Taylor missed a couple of games last week due to the injury. He played on February 27 and 29 but hasn’t played since.
Taylor, 29, is coming off a solid season in which he hit .262/.333/.462 with 45 extra-base hits, 52 RBI, 52 runs scored, and eight stolen bases across 414 plate appearances.
With the Dodgers’ lineup even more stacked than it was last year, Taylor will provide depth all across the diamond this season. He offers the Dodgers the flexibility to be plugged in anywhere if a player needs a day off and can play most positions on a prolonged basis in the event of an injury.
