CT3 (born August 29, 1990) is an American professional baseball utility player for the Los Angeles Dodgers of the Major League Baseball (MLB). He used to play for the Seattle Mariners in the Major League Baseball (MLB). He was a member of the Virginia Cavaliers baseball team in college. A fifth-round pick in the MLB draught, Taylor made his debut for the Seattle Mariners in 2014.
Traded from the Cardinals to the Dodgers, Taylor was named Most Valuable Player of the National League Championship Series in 2017 and was a member of the World Series victors in 2020 and an All-Star in 2021.
Chris Taylor Injury
Taylor (face) won’t start against the Angels on Tuesday but will be available off the bench, manager Dave Roberts said following Sunday’s loss to the Giants, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Taylor will miss at least one game after colliding with the wall in left field during Sunday’s game, but it doesn’t appear to be a long-term injury. Two players, Eddy Alvarez and Hanser Alberto could make their debuts against the Los Angeles Angels.
Sunday marked the first time since 2016 that the Los Angeles Dodgers had been swept by their divisional foe San Francisco Giants. There is just a 3 1/2 game advantage over the Giants, the Dodgers are only a half-game ahead of second-place San Diego, and super utilityman Chris Taylor suffered a facial injury after colliding with the left-field wall while making a running catch.
Dave Roberts, the manager of the Los Angeles Lakers, noted after the game that things could have been much worse for the team.
Taylor avoided salary arbitration by signing a two-year, $13.4 million agreement with the Dodgers on February 7, 2020. Taylor was the Dodgers’ primary second baseman, playing in 56 of the 60 games the team played and batting.270/.366/.476 with eight home runs and 32 RBIs in the season-ending COVID-19 epidemic.
There was only one hit in his first eight at-bats in the Wild Card Series, he went hitless through 11 at-bats in the NLDS, had three hits in 18 at-bats in the NLCS, and a home run in his final 23 at-bats during the World Series. After the Dodgers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4–2 to win their first championship since 1988, Taylor won his first championship ring.
Taylor avoided salary arbitration by signing a two-year, $13.4 million agreement with the Dodgers on February 7, 2020. However, Taylor’s season was cut short because of the COVID-19 pandemic. He appeared in 56 of the 60 games the Dodgers played, batting.270/.366/476 with eight homers and 32 RBIs in the process.
One hit in eight at-bats in the Wild Card Series, one in 11 at-bats in the NLDS, three hits in 18 at-bats in the NLCS, and one home run in 23 at-bats in the World Series were all he had in postseason play. The Dodgers won their first championship since 1988 after defeating the Tampa Bay Rays 4-2 in the World Series. Taylor collected his first championship ring.
