Latest Fantasy Rumors
Progressing in rehab assignment
PBoston Red Sox
July 7, 2022
Taylor, who is managing a back issue, pitched a perfect inning Wednesday, striking out all three batters for Triple-A Worcester.
ANALYSIS
Taylor has been on the injured list all season with a lower-back strain. He started a rehab assignment in April but had a setback and was shut down for a couple weeks. His current rehab assignment started June 21 and has included seven appearances between Double-A and Triple-A, compiling a 3.86 ERA and 7:1 K:BB in seven innings. He'll need to be activated no later than July 11, he could end up being sent to the minors rather than sticking around on the big-league roster.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
This player will receive an outlook for the 2021 fantasy baseball season.
In 2018, Taylor transitioned to a relief role in the minors. One season later, he spent the majority of the campaign in the big leagues, posting a 3.04 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 52 games as an important member of Boston's bullpen. The southpaw is armed with a four-seam fastball and a sinker that sit in the 94-96 mph range along with an upper-80s slider and a rarely-used curveball. While the arsenal produced only average strikeout numbers during Taylor's tenure as a starter, it has yielded much more favorable results since his move to the bullpen, and he impressed with a 31.8 K% in his rookie campaign. Taylor experienced some struggles with his control at the upper levels of the minors, but he did an adequate job of limiting walks in the majors last season, posting an 8.7 BB%. While his role moving forward is unclear, Taylor's rookie success bodes well for more high-leverage opportunities this season.
