Los Angeles Dodgers, Chris Taylor expected to reach deal, sources say

The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to reach a deal with versatile All-Star Chris Taylor as soon as Wednesday, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

The 31-year-old Taylor earned his first All-Star selection with the Dodgers in 2001, hitting .254 with 20 home runs, 73 RBI and 13 steals. He saw the majority of his playing time as a center fielder and at second base, but he also saw action at the other outfield positions as well as shortstop and third base.

He had been offered a qualifying offer worth $18.4 million for one year following the season, but he turned it down to enter free agency.

Last one in before the lockout please be sure to ... well, lock the door. Don't forget where you left the keys!

Dodgers’ deal with Chris Taylor, per major-league source: Four years, $60M with fifth-year option that can increase the total value to $73M.

That's a Zobrist contract which beats the heck out of an Enrique Hernandez contract.

It still boggles my mind that Chris Taylor learned how to hit. Since the Stroman thread is in reminiscing days, my big memory of Taylor is demanding to the TV/field in the 2016 and 2017 NLCS that Taylor stop pretending he was good.
