Oscar Taveras to be held out at least a day
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals outfield prospect Oscar Taveras will be held out at least a day after tweaking his bad leg, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Taveras slipped coming out of the batter's box during a minor-league game, and the team will hold him out at least a day. Taveras has been recovering from ankle surgery, and also had a hamstring issue during camp. The setback doesn't seem to be major, but it's not encouraging given his recent history.

Oscar Taveras will have to earn promotion

Cardinals outfield prospect Oscar Taveras will have to earn his promotion, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Taveras is the team's top prospect, but was sent to the minors after injuries prevented him from experiencing a full camp. Taveras is now in an interesting situation. He's been touted as one of the club's strongest prospects, but the organization is strong as a whole. Outfielders Stephen Piscotty and Randal Grichuk have made progress, and will push Taveras at the position. 

The Cardinals organization has been dealing with these depth issues in recent years. Trevor Rosenthal could be a starter, but the team's pitching talent has pushed him to the pen. The same could happen with Carlos Martinez, who would likely start in almost any other organization. 

While Taveras has been hailed as a the second coming for quite some time, it's clear the production will have to be there. If Taveras goes down to the minors and performs well, it likely won't be long until he's spotted in a Cardinals uniform. But if he struggles, the team does have other options that could threaten his chances of being an early callup.

Hamstring injury results in early demotion for Oscar Taveras
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A nagging hamstring injury likely cost Cardinals promising outfielder Oscar Taveras a chance to earn a roster spot. He was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday.

Mike Matheny warned that Taveras would not break camp with St. Louis if the ailment prevented him from getting enough plate appearances to show he was ready for the top level. Taveras had also been plagued by an ankle injury.

Taveras batted .306 with five home runs and 32 RBI in just 173 at-bats at Triple-A a year ago.

Looking like Oscar Taveras won't break camp with Cardinals
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday outfielder Oscar Taveras won't break camp with the team if isn't 100 percent and playing regularly by the end of spring training. With Taveras sidelined by a hamstring injury, it appears his chances of making the team are dwindling, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"It's not possible -- without him being healthy," Matheny said. "He needed for everything to go right for that to be a possibility. It's definitely something that's holding him up.

"We kept saying we need to see him healthy before we can make any determination, and we say the same thing right now. We just thought we had kind of crossed that hurdle where we could watch him play on a consistent basis. Now we're held up again. He just hit another roadblock."

Oscar Taveras still out Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras is not in the team's starting lineup Tuesday, according to MLB.com.

Taveras was limited early in camp with an ankle issue, but now has been held up by an hamstring injury. The team has been cautious with hamstring issues this spring, and Taveras could sit a few more days before returning to the lineup. Taveras has received six at-bats this spring due to the injuries.
