Dodgers utilityman Chris Taylor hasn’t played since Friday, sidelined with a neck issue that has been too painful for him to swing a bat. Before Monday’s game, L.A. manager Dave Roberts updated the media on Taylor’s status.
Roberts also confirmed that Taylor’s regular season is over, which opens up an interesting possibility. Kevin Pillar, out since early June with a fractured shoulder that everyone assumed at the time was season ending, was playing on a rehab assignment until Triple-A Oklahoma City’s season ended last week. Word trickled down on Monday that Pillar has a locker in the Dodgers’ clubhouse, which might mean an activation is in the cards.
