The Los Angeles Dodgers placed infielder/outfielder Chris Taylor on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a fractured left foot.
The injury occurred Saturday and Taylor sat out Sunday’s game. He returned to the starting lineup Monday but left that game early with discomfort. An X-ray on Tuesday revealed a small fracture in his left foot.
The Dodgers activated infielder/outfielder Zach McKinstry and left-hander Caleb Ferguson from the injured list, and optioned right-hander Ryan Pepiot back to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Taylor, 31, heads to the IL for the first time this season and the second time in his career. He’s batting .238 with 19 doubles, six homers and 27 RBIs in 74 games.
McKinstry, 27, returns after being placed on the IL on June 28 with neck stiffness. He’s batting .143 with a homer and two RBIs in six games.
Ferguson, 25, missed 15 games with left forearm tendonitis. He didn’t give up an earned run in six relief appearances for the Dodgers after returning from Tommy John surgery.
Pepiot, 24, recorded his first career major league win in his fourth career start Tuesday night, tossing five innings, allowing one run and striking out a career-high six in the Dodgers’ 5-2 win over the Colorado Rockies.
