PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers placed infielder/outfielder Chris Taylor on the 10-day injured list with a fractured left forearm and recalled first baseman/outfielder Matt Beaty from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The Dodgers made the move before a 16-2 win over the Phillies on Monday.

Taylor was hit on the forearm by a fastball by Boston's Heath Hembree on Sunday in a 7-4, 12-inning win over the Red Sox.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he expects Taylor to return this season.

Taylor led off in three of the previous four games. He's batting .261 with eight homers and 41 RBIs and has started at second base, shortstop, left field and center field this season.
