Taylor, who slashed .233/.286/.442 with 17 homers and 51 RBIs last season (104 OPS+), started the season on the injured list with a right elbow sprain before a rehab assignment with the Nashville Sounds for the last week. In five games with Nashville, Taylor hit .238/.304/.524 with a homer and five RBIs.
Perkins, who made his MLB debut with the Brewers a few weeks ago, slashed just .083/.083/.083 with one hit in 12 at-bats with the big league squad. He’ll head back to Nashville, where he hit .283/.367/.396 with a homer and four RBIs in his first 14 games this season.
