Nationals activate Denard Span, option Michael Taylor

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/15) The Nationals activated center fielder Denard Span from the 15-day disabled list Sunday and optioned outfielder Michael Taylor to Triple-A Syracuse.

Span had to open the season on the disabled list after underdoing surgery on his core muscle in March. He was able to play in back-to-back games Thursday and Friday before taking Saturday off. He's atop the lineup for Nationals in Sunday's game against the Phillies.

Taylor performed well while filling in as the team's center fielder. He hit .271/.314/.500 with two home runs, eight RBI and two stolen bases in 48 at-bats. He'll return to Syracuse where he can play every day, but he'll likely be back with the Nationals the next time an outfielder is out for an extended period with an injury.

Nationals not sure what to do with Michael Taylor

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/18/15) Nationals center fielder Michael Taylor has filled in while Denard Span has been on the disabled list. Taylor is hitting .279 with two home runs this season. 

With Span expected to return from the DL in the near future, the Nationals aren't sure what to do with Taylor. The team could send him to Triple-A so he can continue to play every day, or the team could keep him in the Majors as a bench player. 

"The fact that Mike can play all three positions is important,"  manager Matt Williams said, per MASN Sports. "Days like today where (Jayson Werth's) not in there and days upcoming for Denard if we get to a point were he's played a bunch in a row and needs a day then yeah, there's starts in there. The question for any young player, the consistent at-bats are what really makes your season. That's why we have a minor league system, is because you can give those guys consistent at-bats and they can improve and get better. It's a tough question, ultimately a question we're going to have to answer. We have to look at Michael, at what's best for him, too."

Nationals' Michael Taylor slugs second home run Thursday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/15) Nationals center fielder Michael Taylor went 1 for 2 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 5-2 win over the Phillies Thursday.

Taylor came through with his second home run in the season in the fifth inning off Phillies starter Cole Hamels, breaking a 2-2 tie to put his team up for good. He's done a great job while filling in for Denard Span in center, hitting .282 with two home runs, eight RBI and two stolen bases, but he's also struck out 14 times in 39 at-bats. With Span likely to return to the team this weekend, perhaps as early as Friday, it's possible Taylor will soon be headed to Triple-A to bide his time until another injury hits the Nationals outfield.

Nats move Escobar to leadoff spot, drop Taylor to ninth in order

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/14/15) Nationals manager Matt Williams made a few changes to his batting order Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Williams moved Yunel Escobar from the No. 2 spot in the lineup into the leadoff spot, where Michael Taylor was positioned the first seven games. Taylor dropped to ninth in the lineup Tuesday.

Outfielder Jayson Werth, who made his season debut Monday after beginning the season on the disabled list, moved up from the cleanup spot to second in the lineup. 

Escobar has a .367 on-base percentage through seven games. He has a career .353 on-base percentage in 222 games batting first.

Michael Taylor leads off game with homer for Nationals

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/10/15) Nationals center fielder Michael Taylor led off the game with a home run, for the team's only run of the game in a 4-1 loss to the Phillies. 

Taylor took starter Jerome Williams to a full count in an eight-pitch at bat, then hit one out to left field. Taylor went one for four and is hitting .294 for the season. 

"It was nice to get on the board early, but it was only one run," he said. "We needed more than that tonight."
