Spring Training is all about working out the details and getting into game shape, and that’s what the Dodgers are doing. Sorenesses and small injuries have popped up all around camp but none so serious that it calls for major concern. The last ache is Chris Taylor‘s bicep, keeping him out for another game Wednesday.
Something that's sort of been lost in the shuffle of Dodger news and Cody Thomas being a beast is that Chris Taylor has been dealing with forearm and biceps irritation.
It's termed as mild and was caused on by a check swing. Should be good for Thursday.

Per Ken Gurnick, Taylor injured his forearm and bicep on a check swing in a game earlier this week. While it’s not necessarily a cause for concern at the moment, it’s worth noting he had to sit a few games because of it.
Taylor made a name for himself after being traded to the Dodgers from Seattle. The now 29-year-old had a breakout year in his first full season with the Dodgers, slashing career highs and earning himself a permanent spot on the roster all year.
Taylor joins Joc Pederson and Dustin May on a list of guys that have a shot at the roster dealing with small injuries or soreness. The good news? Taylor was placed in the lineup for Thursday afternoon.
