Tyrone Taylor’s injury struggles have been extremely apparent this season. His elbow first became an issue earlier this year during spring training. The Brewers tried to get him right by giving him a PRP injection before the season, but to no avail. Tyrone Taylor would miss out on the first month of the season before he was able to step into the batter’s box for the first time in the 2023 regular season
Second Bout With the Elbow
Tyrone would only last another month before finding his elbow failing him once again. His struggles when he was playing this year were hard to ignore. During the month he was active, he was abysmal. Taylor could only muster a .160 batting average, one home run, and just 4 RBIs. So it is really hard to say that the elbow was ever well in the first place. Two weeks ago the Brewers shelved him again for a sprained elbow.
Today, the Brewers announced that, after Taylor received several opinions on his sprained elbow, he decided that a cortisone shot was the best next step. After the cortisone shot, it will become a wait-and-see game as Blake Perkins is currently stepping up to fill in for Taylor. He’s doing a shade better than an injured Taylor by batting .186, but the Brewers hope that, with this shot, they can get the healthy, Taylor numbers that we saw in 2022.
