White Sox Injury Update: Michael Taylor dealing with knee soreness

By on 9/23/2014 12:45:00 PM

The Chicago White Sox defeated the Detroit Tigers last night by the score of 2-0. The win improved the White Sox to 72-84 on the season, fourth in the American League Central. Tyler Flowers provided the only offense of the game with a two-run home run, his 15th of the season. The White Sox were without outfielder Michael Taylor, who is dealing with soreness in his right knee.

As reported by Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times, Taylor was not available to play after injuring his right knee during Friday's game. The injury occurred when Taylor's spike caught as he slid into second base.  Taylor has since had an MRI and then had the knee drained.

Taylor, a 28-year old outfielder, has played a handful of games in each of the past four Major League seasons with the Oakland A's and White Sox. He's batting .261 in 23 at bats this season and has a career .165 average with a home run and 11 RBI in 97 at bats.  In 889 career Minor League games, Taylor has a .290 batting average with 108 home runs and 568 RBI.
