How Tall Is Tyrone Taylor?
Tyrone Taylor’s height is 1.83 m.
For the time being, the Milwaukee Brewers will have to make do without one of their best bench players. Outfielder Tyrone Taylor left Friday’s game early after experiencing oblique tightness during his second at-bat.
Manager Craig Counsell indicated after the game that Taylor will need to sit out with this injury, and the Brewers made that decision official this afternoon:
With Lorenzo Cain healthy and Christian Yelich recovering from his COVID-19 bout, Taylor’s playing time had diminished recently, but the 27-year-old has been given reasonably regular playing time with Milwaukee throughout the season and has usually made the most of it.
Taylor has hit .245/.324/.453 with a 107 OPS+ in 238 plate appearances across 82 games, with 10 home runs and five stolen bases.
According to Defensive Runs Saved, the versatile outfielder has appeared at all three positions and has performed admirably in each.
“We’re going to miss him,” Counsell said after last night’s game to reporters. “Hopefully he’ll only be gone for a short period and get back to us.”
Eric Yardley, a sidearming right-hander, is returning to the major leagues to fill the void, at least for the time being.
Yardley has mostly struggled at the MLB level this year after playing a big role in the bullpen during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.
In 2021, he pitched in 17 games with the Brewers, covering 18.2 innings and posting a 6.75 ERA. In that time, Yardley has walked ten hitters while striking out only five.
At Triple-A, he pitched to a 3.65 ERA in 26 games and 24.2 innings with a 21:6 K/BB ratio in 24.2 innings. This will be Yardley’s first appearance in the major leagues since June.
