Stock Down: Chris Taylor
Well, Chris Taylor was given a chance to be the M’s everyday shortstop once he got healthy and came off the DL, but he hasn’t been able to put it together. He’s 0-for-12 in the past week, and that usually gets you sent down. The Mariners’ have given him plenty of opportunities, but he hasn’t been able to take the bull by the horns and leave his mark.
Mike Montgomery is about to be called up to pitch on Tuesday (if all the speculation is to be true) and with Chris Taylor still having some minor league options left, I think you’ll see him sent down. Hopefully he can find his swing a little bit in Triple A and come up sooner rather than later, but the University of Virginia alum obviously hasn’t been the guy the Mariners’ hoped he would in 2015.
