  • Mets' Tyrone Taylor: Nabs fourth steal

    Taylor went 0-for-5 with a run scored and a stolen base in Thursday's extra-innings win over the Phillies.

    Getting the start in center field and hitting leadoff, Taylor didn't have much success at the plate but took advantage in the eighth inning when he reached on a Bryson Stott error, swiping second base and coming around to score on a Harrison Bader single. Taylor has seen sporadic playing time of late as the Mets' fourth outfielder, and through 91 plate appearances on the season he's slashing .256/.278/.372 with two homers, four steals, 10 runs and 13 RBI.

  • Mets' Tyrone Taylor: Back in bench role

    Taylor is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

    Taylor is back on the bench for the third time in four games after he recently wrapped up a stretch of five consecutive starts in the Mets outfield. All of Brandon Nimmo, Starling Marte and Harrison Bader are healthy and available, so Taylor will remain limited to a fourth-outfielder role for the foreseeable future.

  • Mets' Tyrone Taylor: Garners third straight start

    Taylor will start in right field and bat sixth in Monday's game against the Cubs, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Taylor will draw a third consecutive start Monday, but he'll be relegated to a fourth- or fifth-outfielder role once Starling Marte (personal) returns from the bereavement list, perhaps as soon as Tuesday. The 30-year-old Taylor has done well with his part-time role in the Mets outfield so far this season, as he enters play Monday with a .294 average, two home runs and two stolen bases over 63 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Tyrone Taylor: Homer, three RBI in win

    Taylor went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, three RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Giants.

    Taylor jumped on a hanging knuckle-curve from Sean Hjelle in the top of the fourth and sent it into the stands in center field to extend the Mets' lead to three runs. He then added a two-out, two-run double in the fifth, giving the outfielder his third multi-hit performance of the season. Taylor has proven to be a reliable contributor on offense for New York when his number's been called, batting .349 in April with two homers, 12 RBI and five runs scored.

  • Mets' Tyrone Taylor: Big day in Wednesday's start

    Taylor went 3-for-4 with a run scored, two RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 9-1 win over the Pirates.

    Getting the start in right field and batting seventh, Taylor reeled off his second multi-hit performance of the season while swiping his second base. The 30-year-old has been outstanding so far as the Mets' fourth outfielder, batting .341 (14-for-41) through 15 appearances with a homer, three runs and 10 RBI, and manager Carlos Mendoza hasn't hesitated to give Taylor consistent playing time in the early part of the season.

  • Mets' Tyrone Taylor: Sitting in third straight

    Taylor is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against Atlanta.

    Taylor recently completed a stretch of five consecutive starts, but his boost in playing time was a byproduct of the Mets facing a left-handed pitcher during that stretch in addition to Brandon Nimmo being limited by a hamstring injury. With Nimmo having since returned to his usual spot in left field and the Mets set to face a third consecutive right-handed starting pitcher Thursday, Taylor has now found himself on the bench for each of those contests.

  • Mets' Tyrone Taylor: Gets fifth consecutive start

    Taylor will start in right field and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Reds, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Taylor will draw his fifth straight start Sunday, but he still doesn't look as though he'll be in store for a regular role with the Mets. Before Sunday, each of his prior three starts came while Brandon Nimmo was limited to designated-hitter duties or held out of the lineup as he managed a hamstring issue, but Nimmo is back in left field for the series finale in Cincinnati. The righty-hitting Taylor will stick in the lineup versus southpaw Andrew Abbott on Sunday while Starling Marte gets a day out of the field and occupies the DH spot, but Taylor's opportunities against right-handed pitching are still likely to be limited now that Nimmo is healthy again.

  • Mets' Tyrone Taylor: Swipes first bag of 2024

    Taylor went 2-for-8 with a walk, an RBI and a stolen base across both games of Thursday's doubleheader split with the Tigers.

    The 30-year-old wound up starting both ends of the twin bill, getting the nod in center field and batting eighth in the matinee before shifting to left field and hitting sixth in the nightcap. There were right-handers on the mound in both games for Detroit, which is an encouraging sign Taylor won't be limited to a short-side platoon role this season as the top outfielder off the bench for the Mets. Through four appearances to begin the 2024 campaign, he's batting .214 (3-for-14) and is still looking for his first extra-base hit.

  • Mets' Tyrone Taylor: Pops first spring homer

    Taylor went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.

    The former Brewer launched a solo shot off J.P. France in the first inning, giving Taylor his first homer of the spring. The 30-year-old is ticketed for a bench spot this season with the Mets and has had a solid camp, batting .296 (8-for-27) with a 2:5 BB:K. Should Taylor get significant playing time in 2024, which isn't out of the question given that neither Starling Marte nor Harrison Bader have played more than 120 games in any of the past three seasons, he could deliver some useful power and speed for fantasy GMs, but his career .239/.294/.451 slash line in the majors highlights his limitations.

  • Mets' Tyrone Taylor: Avoids arbitration with NYM

    Taylor signed a one-year, $2.025 million contract with the Mets on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Mark Feinsand of reports.

    Taylor arrived in New York with Adrian Houser through a trade that sent Coleman Crow (elbow) to Milwaukee in December. Taylor slashed .239/.294/.451 in five seasons with the Brewers and projects to serve as a fourth outfielder for the Mets -- much like he was in Milwaukee.

  • Mets' Tyrone Taylor: Heads to Mets in trade

    The Mets acquired Taylor and Adrian Houser from the Brewers on Wednesday in exchange for Coleman Crow (elbow), Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Taylor became expendable for the Brewers when they secured top outfield prospect Jackson Chourio to a pre-debut eight-year, $82 million contract earlier this month. Elbow troubles limited Taylor to 81 major-league games in 2023 and he batted just .234 with a .267 on-base percentage across 243 plate appearances when healthy. The 29-year-old projects to function as a fourth outfielder and bench bat in Queens.

  • Brewers' Tyrone Taylor: Playing right field in Game 1

    Taylor is starting in right field and batting ninth Tuesday in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Diamondbacks.

    Garrett Mitchell is not on the Brewers' active roster for this best-of-three series versus Arizona, so Sal Frelick will cover center field as Taylor patrols right. Taylor missed some time down the stretch with a hamstring injury, but he ultimately registered a strong .912 OPS across his final 82 plate appearances dating back to the beginning of September.

  • Brewers' Tyrone Taylor: Takes seat Thursday

    Taylor is out of the lineup Thursday versus the Cardinals.

    Taylor went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in the Brewers' defeat of St. Louis on Wednesday and is slashing .300/.329/.586 in 73 plate appearances since the beginning of September, but Christian Yelich (back) and Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) now being healthy puts a question mark on his claim to playing time in the Milwaukee outfield. Sal Frelick will also ride the pine in Thursday's series finale against the Cardinals.

  • Brewers' Tyrone Taylor: Returns to lineup

    Taylor (hamstring) is starting in right field and batting ninth Sunday versus Miami.

    Taylor missed three consecutive starts after tweaking his hamstring, but he was able to make a pinch-hit appearance during Saturday's loss to the Marlins. Now fully recovered, Taylor will look to stay hot, as he's slashing .305/.339/.610 with four homers and 12 RBI since the start of September.

  • Brewers' Tyrone Taylor: Remains out Saturday

    Taylor (hamstring) isn't starting Saturday against the Marlins.

    Hamstring problems have kept Taylor out of the Brewers' lineup for each of their last two games, and the team will continue to play it safe as it looks to clinch a division title Saturday. Sal Frelick will shift to right field in Taylor's absence while Blake Perkins starts in center field and bats ninth.

  • Brewers' Tyrone Taylor: Out with hamstring issue

    Taylor is out of the lineup Friday at Miami due to a minor hamstring tweak, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    This minor hamstring issue also helps to explain his absence from Thursday's series finale against the Cardinals. McCalvy believes the Brewers are simply being cautious with Taylor, who has slashed .310/.344/.621 with four homers, six doubles, 12 RBI, two steals and 14 runs scored in 17 games since the beginning of September.

  • Brewers' Tyrone Taylor: Takes seat again Friday

    Taylor remains out of the lineup Friday against the Marlins.

    Taylor has enjoyed a productive September, but he got a breather during Thursday's series finale in St. Louis and will remain on the bench Friday in Miami as Christian Yelich (back) returns to left field. Blake Perkins is in center and Sal Frelick is in right for the visiting Brewers.

  • Brewers' Tyrone Taylor: Takes seat Thursday

    Taylor is out of the lineup Thursday against the Cardinals.

    Taylor has been getting a lot of action in the Brewers' outfield with Christian Yelich continuing to battle a back injury, and he's taken advantage of the playing time with six doubles, four homers, two steals, 12 RBI, 14 runs and a .965 OPS through 17 games in September. Mark Canha, Blake Perkins and Sal Frelick are starting across the outfield as William Contreras takes a turn in the DH role.

  • Brewers' Tyrone Taylor: Homers twice Wednesday

    Taylor went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Cardinals.

    Taylor's had a down year in the power department -- he's up to nine homers and a .438 slugging percentage across 75 contests. He's hit four of his homers and added six of his 14 doubles this season in 17 September games. The outfielder is batting .233 with 30 RBI, 34 runs scored and nine stolen bases over 222 plate appearances. He continues to split time between right field and left field.
