Oscar Taveras slugs third home run Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals rookie outfielder Oscar Taveras went 1 for 3 with a two-run home run in his team's 5-3 win over the Brewers Saturday.

Taveras homered in his major-league debut, but it's been downhill ever since. His playing time has been uneven over the last week, but Saturday's home run in a nice sign of life that may earn him extra at-bats moving forward. Taveras has hit .230/.273/.311 with three home runs and 19 RBI in 196 at-bats.

Oscar Taveras set to sit Wednesday against Pirates
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cardinals rookie Oscar Taveras has heated up, but he will cool his heels Wednesday against Pittsburgh. Taveras is out of the lineup in favor of Randal Grichuk.

Taveras has hit safely in seven of his last eight games in raising his average from .213 to .233, but has just one RBI since Aug. 17 and nary a homer since July 31.

Oscar Taveras' struggles could cost him playing time
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras was dropped to eighth in Monday's lineup against the Marlins, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch speculates Tuesday he could start to see a bit less playing time moving forward.

Taveras is hitting just .231/.286/.359 since the trade deadline, when he inherited an everyday role. The biggest issue has been that he is hitting just .197 against fastballs on the year.

Allen Craig trade clears everyday spot for Oscar Taveras
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Just a week after general manager John Mozeliak speculated that the Cardinals might send outfielder Oscar Taveras back to the minors, the team cleared space for him to play everyday at the trade deadline.

With the trade to send Allen Craig to Boston Thursday, the Cardinals will likely need to depend on Taveras to play right field every day down the stretch. Taveras has been splitting time evenly with Craig in right field, starting 11 of the last 22 games. The top prospect hasn't lit the league on fire yet, hitting just .208/.238/.271 in the first 96 at-bats of his career.

Oscar Taveras could be headed back to minors
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak admitted if outfielder Oscar Taveras doesn't start to heat up offensively and see regular playing time, then the team might have to send him back to the minors, per MLB.com.

"He is still somebody that we view as a prospect, and at some point he's going to need to play more," Mozeliak said of Taveras. "Whether that is here or back in the minors, for his development, getting at-bats is important.

"At the major-league level, I understand that you have to try to go with the hot bat -- or in this case to try and get both guys going. It's not an easy task. As you can imagine, it's a fine balance between sitting and playing. Currently, it's not a great situation for either one. Hopefully, in the next week or two, it might find a way to be resolved. If not, there are obviously some answers to help create playing time."
