20 MLB Trades We Need to See As Deadline Approaches

Philadelphia Gets Outfield Help With Michael A. Taylor

Taylor makes some sense for the Phillies. For one, he’s a veteran of the N.L. East — and won’t have to make much of a adjustment versus the pitching he may face. He’s a plug-and-play guy, possessing the ability to play multiple outfield spots. Taylor’s past history as both a starter/bench player gives Philadelphia some much-needed versatility. Above all else, Taylor — an elite athlete — is very good as both a fielder and as a base stealer. He’d be a great depth piece to add for the Phils as they attempt to make the playoffs.
