Taylor was optioned to Double-A Harrisburg on Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Taylor went 3-for-20 while starting only four games in June, so it's no surprise to see him headed to Triple-A. The 28-year-old has a .211/.277/.276 slash line in 85 plate appearances this season. Gerardo Parra will continue to serve as the Nationals' fourth outfielder.
Taylor has started only four games so far in June, going 3-for-20 with zero extra-base hits, zero walks, an RBI, two runs and two stolen bases.
The addition of Gerardo Parra to the Nats' roster in early May has had the end result of reducing Taylor to the status of fifth outfielder with everyone healthy. Even in deep NL-only formats, the 28-year-old simply isn't seeing enough action, or doing enough with his rare opportunities, to warrant an active roster spot.
