Mariners' Chris Taylor in Triple-A lineup on rehab


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. 

Taylor is in the starting lineup and will play five innings, per Tacoma's play-by-play announcer Mike Curto. He's returning from a fractured wrist. 


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.


Mariners add pitcher Tyler Olson to roster, place Chris Taylor on DL


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.

The shortstop suffered a broken bone in his wrist on March 13 and hasn't taken swings since. On Sunday, he took dry swings (meaning no ball was involved) in a pool, per the Seattle Times.

He's also started throwing.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2015) An MRI on Mariners shortstop Chris Taylor's wrist revealed a fractured triquetrum bone in his right wrist, the team announced on Saturday.

The injury will keep Taylor out of action for four-to-six weeks, ending his spring training and giving Brad Miller the shortstop job to start the season. 


Chris Taylor has MRI for Mariners, likely out until Tuesday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2015) Mariners shortstop Chris Taylor had an MRI after fouling a ball off his wrist in Friday's game. 

Taylor is out of the lineup on Saturday, and manager Lloyd McClendon said he was "doubtful" for Sunday. 

“I’ll know more later,” Taylor told the News Tribune's Bob Dutton. “It swelled up a little bit overnight, but that was expected.”


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
(1/22/2015) Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said Thursday there "is no favorite" between Chris Taylor and Brad Miller, who will compete this spring to become Seattle's starting shortstop.

Manager Lloyd McClendon shared similar sentiments Thursday.

"We had two young men who performed well in spurts," McClendon said. "They’ll be given the opportunity to battle [this spring]."


Report: Mets have talked to Mariners about Chris Taylor, Brad Miller


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) The Mets have had trade discussions with the Mariners about shortstops Brad Miller and Chris Taylor, sources told ESPN. However, the Mets are expected to wait until January to see how the shortstop market develops.

Report: Mets search for shortstop upgrade, M's could be trade partner


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) The Mariners could end up as a trade partner for the Mets, who are in search of a shortstop, multiple insiders told ESPN. Even with the trade of Nick Franklin in July, the Mariners still have shortstops Chris Taylor and Brad Miller on the roster.

The Mets appear ready to finally make a move to acquire a shortstop after losing patience with Ruben Tejada, who started 105 times at shortstop in 2014.


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."


Chris Taylor notches two steals in win vs. Angels


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/27/2014) Mariners shortstop Chris Taylor went 2 for 3 and stole two bases in his team's 4-3 win over the Angels Friday.

Taylor has yet to homer since joining the team in mid-July after smacking five home runs in 302 at-bats at the Triple-A level, but he's certainly found a way to contribute offensively from the bottom third of the lineup after the Mariners struggled to find offensive production at the position earlier in the season. Taylor has hit .289/.352/.352 with five stolen bases in 128 at-bats.


Chris Taylor in, Brad Miller out of Monday lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Taylor is 3 for 8 since his promotion. Miller has four hits in his last 25 at-bats and his batting average has sunk to .203. He is also tied for the American League lead in errors at that position with 14.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Mariners infielder Chris Taylor has been recalled from Triple-A Thursday.
