Los Angeles Dodgers OF Chris Taylor out with left foot fracture

Los Angeles Dodgers versatile outfielder Chris Taylor has a left foot fracture and will be sidelined indefinitely, he told reporters Tuesday.

Taylor exited Saturday's win because of what was then called a left foot contusion, and then left Monday's win because of a swollen ankle. A CT scan revealed the break. Taylor described the injury as a "small fracture" but said he was unsure how long he will be out.

"We really haven't even gotten to that point where we discussed a time frame yet," Taylor told Spectrum SportsNet LA. "Right now we're taking it step by step, and I don't think we've put an exact date on when a possible return will be."

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he is hoping Taylor will be back in a couple of weeks.

Taylor was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. Gavin Lux, Trayce Thompson and Jake Lamb will platoon in left field during Taylor's absence.

In other moves Wednesday, the Dodgers activated infielder/outfielder Zach McKinstry and left-hander Caleb Ferguson from the injured list and optioned right-hander Ryan Pepiot to the minors.

Taylor, 31, is slashing .238/.319/.409 with six home runs and 27 RBIs this season. He signed a four-year contract worth $60 million to return to the Dodgers this past offseason.

The Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 5-2 on Tuesday night, pushing their National League West lead over the San Diego Padres to 5½ games, their largest of the season.
