Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Tyrone Taylor is headed back to Milwaukee to receive a PRP injection in his sprained right elbow and will miss at least the first month of the season, as reported first by Todd Rosiak this morning.
Bad news on Tyrone Taylor. He’s headed back to Milwaukee for a PRP injection in his sprained right elbow. He will miss at least the first month of the season, says Craig Counsell.— Todd Rosiak (@Todd_Rosiak) March 1, 2023
Taylor, who hasn’t played at all during spring training, appeared in 120 games with Milwaukee last season, slashing .233/.286/.442 with 17 homers and 51 RBIs as the Brewers primary center fielder after the DFA of Lorenzo Cain in June.
He was expected to compete for the starting center field job with Garrett Mitchell out of spring training. With this news, Mitchell’s top competition for the starting job is Sal Frelick, who is a top prospect himself entering the 2023 season.
