Mariners give SS Chris Taylor a rest on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) 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.

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
(5/11/2015) 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."


Chris Taylor scratched from Mariners lineup with injury


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/4/2015) Chris Taylor, who was promoted from Triple-A earlier on Monday, will be in the Mariners' starting lineup Monday night in Los Angeles against the Angels, playing shortstop and hitting ninth.

With Austin Jackson (ankle) being placed on the 15-day disabled list, Justin Ruggiano gets his second start of the season in center field, batting second.

Taylor was competing for the M's shortstop job in spring training but got derailed with a broken wrist on March 13.

Report: Signs point to Mariners promoting Taylor, Beimel


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Signs are pointing to the Mariners promoting shortstop Chris Taylor and reliever Joe Beimel from Triple-A Tacoma on Monday, according to The News Tribune. The Mariners have two open roster spots after demoting relievers Yoervis Medina and Tyler Olson to the minors on Sunday.

Taylor was competing for the starting shortstop job this spring before suffering a broken wrist March 13. He is batting .313 with one triple, two home runs, five doubles and six RBI in 21 games.

Beimel signed a minor-league deal with the Mariners in early April. He is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in three outings. He has five strikeouts and no walks in 3 2/3 innings.


Mariners SS prospect Chris Taylor torrid in Tacoma


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) A fractured wrist prevented Chris Taylor from completing his competition with Brad Miller for the Mariners starting shortstop job out of spring training. But he certainly is making up for lost time.

Taylor has been tearing it up at Triple-A Tacoma since being activated and sent there in mid-April. He has five two-hit games since April 20 and has hit safely in all but two of 11 games since his late start to his season. He has scored seven runs, slammed two homers and driven in four.

The 24-year-old Taylor boasts a slash line of .305/.364/.441. But Miller is performing well with Seattle, making Taylor's path to the big leagues a little rockier. Miller has hit safely in eight of his last nine games as his average has soared to .291.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Mariners' shortstop Chris Taylor will start an minor league injury rehab stint with Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday.

Mariners' Chris Taylor full participant in batting practice Thursday


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) After breaking his wrist during Cactus League play, Mariners shortstop Chris Taylor is working to get back on the diamond.

Taylor was a full participant in batting practice on Thursday. The 24-year-old is hoping to be cleared to play this weekend, reports the team's Triple-A affiliate Tacoma.

Prior to the injury, Taylor was batting .421 on eight hits with one double, two triples and one home run in 19 plate appearances.


Mariners' Chris Taylor has 'no restrictions' in batting, fielding drills


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Mariners trainer Rick Griffin said Wednesday that shortstop Chris Taylor has "no restrictions" as he takes part in batting and fielding drills, MLB.com reports.

Taylor is with Triple-A Tacoma as he rehabs from a broken wrist and could begin a rehab assignment within the next week. Once healthy, he could join the Mariners to play shortstop at the major-league level or remain with Tacoma and serve as organizational depth. The team is unlikely to carry him on the major-league roster if he won't play most days, so his landing spot could depend on the performance of Brad Miller over the next few weeks.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2015) The Mariners have added pitcher Tyler Olson to their Opening Day roster and placed shortstop Chris Taylor on the 15-day DL, retro to March 27, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.

Olson did not allow a single run in 12 2/3 innings this spring with 15 strikeouts and zero walks in 10 appearances. Taylor is recovering from a fractured wrist suffered last month.

He's also started throwing.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Mariners' Chris Taylor getting more chances at the plate


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Mariners shortstop Chris Taylor is still hoping to become Seattle's starter at the position by opening day. It helps that he's taken the second most at-bats in spring training of anyone on the team.

"I'm just glad I'm getting [at-bats]," said Taylor. "I have no problem bouncing back and forth between short and second. I'm glad I get to see some live arms and get back in that competitive, game-ready mode and get that feeling back."

Manager Lloyd McClendon is happy that the position battle has gone this long.

"That was the way I was hoping it would be," McClendon said. "As we continue to move forward, I think things will get even more interesting and the competition will heat up at a lot of different positions, not just shortstop. I think we have three or four different areas where it should be pretty interesting."

Taylor has hit two triples, one double and a home run in his eight hits this spring.


Mariners shortstop Brad Miller homers twice Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller blasted two home runs in Monday's 4-3 win over the Indians. So far this spring, Miller is 4 for 6 and gaining confidence at the plate, reports SeattlePI.com.

"I'll take them in singles, doubles, pairs, whatever," said Miller. "It was awesome, especially early. We know we're probably going to get a couple of at-bats, and you just want to make the most of them."

Miller is battling with Chris Taylor to become the team's shortstop when the regular season begins and was given the start Monday. Taylor also played, but at second base, with Robinson Cano away from the team after a death in the family.


Mariners' Chris Taylor homers, triples on Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Mariners shortstop Chris Taylor hit a home run and tripled on Friday against the Dodgers.

Taylor came into camp competing for the team's shortstop position with Brad Miller. While Miller likely has the upper hand, he's coming off a down season. Taylor, on the other hand, played well in the minors in 2014, and hit .287 in a brief major-league debut. It's believed whoever loses out on the starting role will be sent to the minors. 


McClendon: Unlikely Mariners can keep Taylor and Miller on roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon indicated Thursday it is going to be tough to keep Chris Taylor and Brad Miller on the roster. The duo are competing for the starting shortstop job this spring.

“They both saw significant time last year and only one of them can play short as this team shapes up,” McClendon said, per MLB.com. “I like both guys. They both bring a lot to the table. I think Chris is probably a little bit ahead of the game defensively and Brad is probably ahead of the game offensively. It’s a nice combination and let’s see what happens. … If we don’t have injuries, I doubt that we can take them both.”


Brad Miller, Chris Taylor to compete for starting SS role with M's


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Brad Miller, Chris Taylor to compete for Mariners' starting shortstop job


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Brad Miller's strong finish to the season means there is no clear-cut favorite for the starting shortstop job heading into spring training, according to MLB.com. Miller is expected to compete with Chris Taylor for the starting job next season.

"That's a great question and I don't know if I really have the answer right now," McClendon said. "I thought Taylor played extremely well defensively. I'm still intrigued about what Miller is capable of doing from an offensive standpoint. I guess to answer your question, yeah, it's probably wide open."
