A's put Chris Young on 15-day DL
The team says Taylor took a redeye flight to New York and is available for Saturday's game against the Yankees.
Young was injured during Monday night's 19-inning victory over the Angels and was placed on the DL retroactive to April 30. He is batting .172 with four homers and 15 RBIs in his first season with Oakland.
The 27-year-old Taylor, once a highly touted prospect, was hitting .329 with five homers and 16 RBIs in 18 games with the River Cats. He went 0 for 6 with the A's last month, and manager Bob Melvin says he is likely to get playing time against left-handed pitching.
