Left Field - Los Angeles Dodgers
Height: 6' 1"
Date of Birth: August 29, 1990 (30 years old)
Dodgers' Chris Taylor: Doubles and scores twice
Taylor went 2-for-4 with two runs, a double and a walk in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Oakland.The utility player led off for the Dodgers in the absence of Mookie Betts (back) and raised his average to .357 in 14 at-bats this season. Los Angeles' unrivaled depth will prevent Taylor from being an everyday player, but the career .264 hitter is a reliable option when starting and should always receive hittable pitches as opponents navigate through the vaunted, and star-studded, lineup.

Taylor will sit Friday against the Rockies, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.Taylor may not be the Dodgers' primary starter at any one position this year, but he should still find himself in the lineup on a regular basis, primarily at second base and in left field. He started in left field at AJ Pollock's expense on Opening Day but will retreat to the bench for the second game of the season, while Gavin Lux makes his second straight start at the keystone.
