Dodgers: Chris Taylor Will Undergo Treatment on His Wrist Before a Decision is Made

Fingers crossed that CT3 is fine on Monday.



The Dodgers injuries just will not stop in the 2021 season. After Corey Seager was hit by a pitch on Saturday night, it was revealed that he had broken a bone in his hand. And while the news was better than expected, it still leaves the team even more shorthanded. 

Seager will not require surgery on his hand, that’s the one piece of good news. But the Dodgers also had to scratch Chris Taylor from the lineup right before the game on Sunday. Taylor was experiencing soreness in his wrist resulting in his removal. 

When asked about it after the game, Roberts sounded unsure about how they would proceed. The Dodgers will treat the wrist today and tomorrow and make a decision on it by then. Taylor was supposed to get the start at shortstop against left-hander Madison Bumgarner on Monday. 

For Chris to say he can’t play minutes before the game is obviously a little concerning, so we wanted to make sure we stayed away from him today. With some treatment, hopefully we’ll see how he responds tomorrow and I’ll make that decision for tomorrow night. 

The Dodgers should be getting some help this week thanks to recent transactions. Yoshi Tsutsugo is set to join the team as soon as Monday, and the Albert Pujols signing is supposed to be announced. Unfortunately, neither of those guys offers the same flexibility as Taylor

If Taylor does have to go on the injured list, the Dodgers’ options at shortstop are very limited. They have Gavin Lux set to get most of the reps, but not much beyond him. They might also need to shift Muncy over to second base depending on who they bring onto the active roster. 

We’ll see how it works out at some point Monday.

  1. If CT3 has to go on IL, this roster will be in a world of hurt. Hopefully Taylor can avoid this and return as soon as possible because when he does he has to be in there daily for defense and offense reasons.

  2. Another day another injury. It’s just my baseball superstitious nature but the team needs to lose the “dunked on” motion they’ve used this year; it’s evil and has to be exorcised.

  3. I can’t sleep , thinking about how unreal bad things are happening so frequently to this team. It has been one after another of really strange incidents occurring to this organization. DodgerNation; pray every night and anyone w/ some higher power bless this organization with some goodness. This organization have done a lot of good for the whole community and what it brings to the brand of Major League Baseball. I really have this feeling that somebody or something has put a curse on the Dodgers. It is really hard to believe what is going on.
