Taylor not in Dodgers' lineup for NLCS Game 6October 17, 2020 | 10:09 AM
Chris Taylor is not in the Dodgers' lineup for Saturday's NLCS Game 6 against the Braves.
Analysis: Taylor suffered a minor ankle injury in Friday night's Game 5, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said the utilityman is feeling OK ahead of Saturday's game. "I expect him to be available," Roberts told reporters Saturday morning. With Taylor not starting, Austin Barnes will catch Walker Buehler while Will Smith will slide from catcher to designated hitter. Taylor and the Dodgers will need to win Saturday for the 30-year-old to get the chance to start a potential deciding Game 7 on Sunday.
