LOS ANGELES — Nearly the entire 40-man roster is active now, as the Dodgers recalled infielder Chris Taylor on Friday for some infield depth for the final nine games of the regular season.

Oklahoma City reached the Pacific Coast League Championship Series, but lost in four games to El Paso, eliminated last Saturday night.

Taylor, acquired from the Mariners for pitcher Zach Lee on June 19, was 12-for-55 with five extra-base hits, hitting .218/.271/.382 in 29 games for the Dodgers this season. He started five games at second base, four games at shortstop, and twice at third base.

Taylor hit .368/.438/.544 in 15 games for Oklahoma City, and was 5-for-32 (.156) in their playoff run in nine games, with nine walks and a .341 on-base percentage.

Micah Johnson was recalled Monday. He, along with Taylor, were the only players on the 40-man roster

The recall of Taylor and Friday starter Scott Kazmir gives the Dodgers 39 players on the active roster. The only player on the 40-man roster (not counting the 60-day disabled list) not on the active roster is Brandon McCarthy, who is on the 15-day DL.

Manager Dave Roberts said McCarthy would be activated soon, perhaps as early as this weekend.
