Taylor told reporters that he fully expects to play in the weekend series against the New York Mets. According to Dodgers beat reporter David Vassegh, Taylor doesn't anticipate his hamstring to force him to miss any of the games against the Mets. 

The Dodgers are just being careful with their 27-year-old shortstop. With the Dodgers off on Thursday, it appears he has a decent shot on playing Friday.

This season Taylor is batting .249 with 8 HRs, 27 RBIs, 46 runs scored in 72 games.
