Latest News
Michael Taylor could play more than expected
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/13/14) You didn't think the Nationals would call up Michael Taylor to sit him, did you? Well, in any case, I did and basically said as much Monday, the day before his major-league debut.

He not only started in that debut, but homered to the opposite field, going 2 for 4. His talent is immense. He was in the middle of a George Springer-like season in the minors when he got the call. Granted, he hadn't come close to those numbers prior to this year and got only 13 at-bats at Triple-A before the Nationals summoned him, but still, the best-case scenario for him is a good one indeed.

If only his role was clear.

I said the Nationals would sit him because they didn't seem to have a spot available for him with Bryce Harper, Denard Span and Jayson Werth patrolling the outfield. But that's before I knew Werth's shoulder was still bothering him enough to require a cortisone shot. An MRI Wednesday even revealed an AC joint sprain, though the Nationals seem to think his absence will measure in days rather than weeks.

If they're right, Taylor probably isn't worth your time in Fantasy, but in the increasingly likely case that they're wrong, picking him up may prove to be a shrewd move. Particularly in five-outfielder (i.e., Rotisserie) leagues, I think I'd take a chance on him.

Michael Taylor blasts off in big league debut Tuesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/13/14) Nationals right fielder Michael Taylor took a big bite out of the Big Apple in his major league debut Tuesday against the Mets.

The 23-year-old Taylor blasted a two-run homer in a five-run sixth inning and added a single to end the night with a shiny .500 average.

Michael Taylor set for debut Tuesday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/12/14) Nationals outfielder Michael Taylor is in the lineup for his major-league debut Tuesday against the Mets, two days after his recall from Triple-A Syracuse. He is starting in right and batting eighth in place of Jayson Werth. 
Michael Taylor not worth adding yet
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/11/14) Michael Taylor may eventually be a big deal in Fantasy, but right now, his promotion to the big leagues doesn't mean much.

He's a fill-in for a fill-in, replacing the injured Steven Souza, who himself deserved more playing time. Souza was replacing the injured Nate McLouth, who filled a bench role for the Nationals.

It's not a matter of Taylor playing his way into the lineup. The Nationals legitimately don't have a spot for him. If you were in manager Matt Williams' shoes, which of Bryce Harper, Jayson Werth and Denard Span would you sit?

Granted, none of those three have had the easiest time staying on the field over the years, with Werth most recently missing a couple games because of a sore ankle and shoulder. Because Taylor is capable of playing center field, an injury to any of them would clear a spot for him.

But are you going to devote a precious roster spot to that possibility? Taylor has five-category potential, yes, having hit .315 with 22 homers, 35 steals and a .948 OPS between two, but seeing as he played just four games at Triple-A, the Nationals are clearly rushing him to meet a need. Seems like just a Hail Mary in a standard 12-team league.

Anything deeper, as always, is a different story.

Michael Taylor promoted after Steven Souza lands on DL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/14) The Nationals announced Sunday they promoted outfield prospect Michael Taylor from Triple-A Syracuse. To clear a roster spot, outfielder Steven Souza landed on the disabled list due to a left shoulder contusion.
