(5/13/13) With Chris Young and Coco Crisp both inching toward returns, Athletics outfielder Michael Taylor's time in the big leagues could be coming to an end. Taylor, who was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on May 4, entered Monday's contest against the Rangers with one hit over his last 14 at-bats.
“He just hasn’t had the quality at-bats he’d like to have,” manager Bob Melvin told MLB.com. “We still feel like the ability is there. It just hasn’t translated at this point.
"You look at Chris Carter, and he had a tough time and finally got more of an opportunity to play on a regular basis and figured it out and had a productive year. We’d like to think that’s the same way with Michael, because the ability is there."
