Dodgers: Chris Taylor Says There Have Been No Conversations About What Position He’ll Play Next Season

The Dodgers have lost a ton of their players this off-season. We will no longer see Chris Matin, Tommy Kahnle, Tyler Anderson, Trea Turner, and Cody Bellinger in Dodger blue. With those losses come holes to fill for the Boys in Blue.

Many fans would’ve loved for them to go after Aaron Judge for the outfield and retain Turner at shortstop, but those were never real options for the Dodgers.

L.A. has some good in-house options, one of them being Dodgers utility player Chris Taylor.
Taylor joined the Dodger Talk host on local radio and said he doesn’t know where he will play yet.

“I would love to play short and center. I haven’t had that conversation or thought about it at this point. We’re still early in the offseason; a lot can happen.”

But what position will Taylor fill? His flexibility to play almost any position could make it challenging for the Dodgers to put him in an everyday position.

It was an injury-riddled season for the CT3 in 2022. He played 100 games in the outfield, 80 in left field, and played in 22 games at second base, three at third base, and one at shortstop.

The lackluster moves that the Dodgers have or have not made have left Dodger fans uncertain of the 2023 season. L.A. has lost more than they’ve gained, but could this all be a part of a bigger plan?

The Dodgers could give the young guys a shot and have CT3 play in whatever position he desires in the outfield. Or he could fight for a spot at shortstop along with Gavin Lux if they fail to sign a big-name shortstop. The possibilities are endless with Chris.

Where would you like Taylor to play next season? Let us know, Dodger fans.

  1. If he’s the most comfortable at SS, then let hin play there. He had his best seasons when he was playing every day at 1 position

  2. I don’t care what position he plays. I want him to change his approach at the plate and quit swinging for the fence on every pitch. Put the ball in play more and cut down on the strikeouts.

    1. It’s Von Scoyoc screwing these guys to swing with launch. Notice CT, JT, Belli, JD Martinez, and I see even Mookie is striking out more with that swing. T. Turner was smart to leave because that would have screwed him up.
      Put CT3 at SS and Lux at second base. CT is a much more savvy SS with more experience and a stronger arm. But yeah, with the new rules in baseball, CT should concentrate on line drives to get on base, hit to all fields, and use his speed on the bases,

  3. With close to a 40% SO rate bench warmer. He has been given the chance to play 2nd base twice and didn’t make the grade.
