Mariners give SS Chris Taylor a rest on Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/27/15) After starting eight games in a row, Mariners shortstop Chris Taylor will get the day off on Wednesday, as he is being held out of the lineup versus the Rays. In those eight games, the young Taylor has just six hits in 28 at-bats. So manager Lloyd McClendon has decided to give him a rest and clear his head a little.
Brad Miller will get the start at shortstop with Dustin Ackley entering the lineup in left field for the afternoon affair.

|(5/12/15) Mariners shorstop Chris Taylor is back in the starting lineup on Tuesday after missing Monday's game with a finger injury, the team announced.
Taylor will replace Brad Miller, who moves to designated hitter and pushes Rickie Weeks to the bench. Taylor is hitting .167 in 18 at-bats this season.
The Mariners are currently the favorites (-145) against San Diego.
McClendon: Chris Taylor hand 'going to be OK'
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/11/15) The hand Mariners starting shortstop Chris Taylor jammed Saturday night against Oakland is "going to be OK," Lloyd McClendon told the Tacoma News-Tribune.
Taylor did not play Sunday, but an examination revealed only swelling and bruising. He is otherwise fine.
"I think it scared him more than anything," McClendon added. "As quickly as the swelling can get out of there, he should be back in the lineup."

|(5/10/15) The Mariners scratched shortstop Chris Taylor from Sunday's lineup. He's being given X-rays after being stepped on in Saturday's game, per Seattle's 710 AM radio.
Those X-rays showed that Taylor has a bruise above his pinky, but the injury should not keep the shortstop out for an extended period of time.
Brad Miller will replace Taylor in the lineup.
SS Chris Taylor makes second start for Mariners on Tuesday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/5/15) Chris Taylor is back in the Mariners’ starting lineup on Tuesday, batting ninth and playing shortstop in Los Angeles against the Angels.
Taylor was promoted from Triple-A on Monday and went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts in his first major-league action of the season.
Taylor was competing for the M's shortstop job in spring training but got derailed with a broken wrist on March 13.
|2014 summary: After the way Brad Miller performed as a rookie in 2013, Chris Taylor, himself no stranger to high batting averages in the minors, looked like he might be destined for no more than a utility role in the majors. But Miller's sophomore slump forced the Mariners to try something else, and by late July, Taylor had become the primary shortstop for a legitimate contender. Of course, he didn't show much pop in the role, but that's not as much his game as it is Miller's.|
Playing time status: Though Taylor made a favorable impression, the general belief is that he doesn't have nearly as much upside as Miller offensively, so he was looking like a long shot to win the starting job even before breaking his wrist this spring. When he returns in May, he could become the lesser half of a lefty-righty platoon since he and Miller bat from opposite sides of the plate.
2015 outlook: Though Taylor didn't hit for as much power as Miller in the minors, he was more of a base stealer and could tap into that ability more in a full-time role. But again, a full-time role appears to be unlikely for him. He's just a low-end AL-only option on Draft Day.
