Michael Taylor went 2-for-3 with a double and a solo home run on Wednesday against the Brewers.
Taylor has had a nice couple of days in the Cactus League. He homered off of Yovani Gallardo in the second inning, then doubled and scored in the sixth. He went 3-for-3 with a double on Tuesday. Still, there just isn't any room on the roster for Taylor and even if there were, Sam Fuld would have the inside track at this point in time.

Michael Taylor is taking ground balls at first base this spring to increase his versatility.
"I'm just trying to be as versatile as possible, and if I can do that hopefully create more value for myself," said Taylor, who has never played first base as a pro. The 27-year old is following the lead of teammate Brandon Moss, who made the same transition last season. Taylor has had some success in the minor leagues, but it has yet to translate in the majors. Increasing his versatility only stands to help the former top prospect.
