Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Tyrone Taylor finally became a full-time Major Leaguer last year. While he continued being an everyday player to start the 2022 MLB season, he's been sidelined since the beginning of July with a concussion.
Fans have been worried about Taylor due to how serious concussions can be. Fortunately, Brewers insider Todd Rosiak shared a great injury update regarding the outfielder on Friday, reporting that Taylor is finally set to begin his rehab stint with Triple-A Nashville.
Tyrone Taylor Injury Update
The Brewers were hoping for Taylor to ramp up his rehab earlier this week, but his concussion symptoms returned on Tuesday. Had that incident not happened, the plan was for him to return to Milwaukee's lineup this weekend.
Though his batting average could be better (.228), Taylor was semi-productive at the plate before his concussion, racking up 13 doubles, nine home runs and 32 RBIs in 215 at-bats over 62 games.
The club certainly misses Taylor as their starting centerfielder, Veteran CFLorenzo Cain continues to struggle with his .179/.231/.234 slash line and below-average fielding percentage (.976). One can only assume that he'll be out of the lineup once Taylor returns.
The general feeling is that the Brewers won't rush Taylor back before Tuesday's MLB All-Star Game. Concussions shouldn't be messed with and the last thing Milwaukee wants is for the Torrance, CA native to suffer an unnecessary setback.
Brewers World Series Odds
Hopefully, Taylor's eventual return helps separate the Brewers from the other championship contenders. Milwaukee currently has +2500 odds (T-No. 6) to win the 2022 World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
