Manager has faith Oscar Taveras will heat up offensively
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Since his recall from the minors in early July, Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras has hit just .190 (8 for 42) with no home runs and three RBI in 14 games.

Taveras is batting just .190 with one home run and five RBI in his first 25 games as a major leaguer and hasn't delivered the results the Cardinals were looking for from the highly touted prospect.

However, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said the team hasn't lost faith in the rookie outfielder getting on track offensively.

"We haven't seen the Oscar Taveras we know is there," Matheny told MLB Network Radio Tuesday. "It's been slow coming, but it will be here at some point."

Oscar Taveras getting preferential treatment so far
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

So far, Oscar Taveras is 3 for 3 since returning from Triple-A Memphis, at least in terms of starts.

He replaced Matt Holliday for one game and Allen Craig for another, and most encouraging of all, he even got a start in center field with ground ball-oriented Adam Wainwright on the mound.

Playing him seems to be a priority for the Cardinals. Of course, if he doesn't perform, manager Mike Matheny's daily dilemma is over. They'll just send him back to Memphis. But for now, at least you know they didn't just bring him up to serve as an extra bat off the bench. If he makes good on this opportunity, he'll probably emerge, much like George Springer and Gregory Polanco have, as a must-start Fantasy outfielder.

Keep him stashed in all leagues.

Oscar Taveras recall to impact PT for some St. Louis players
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny talked to the media Monday following the recall of outfielder Oscar Taveras from Triple-A Memphis.

"We’re trying to generate some offense," Matheny said. "I don’t think this is going to be exactly like we saw before when we had him up where it was, 'Here you go, you’re going to be in there every day.' But we’re going to have to find some considerable time for him."

Taveras' promotion means Allen Craig will likely lose some playing time in right field and Matt Adams could lose some playing time to Craig at first base.

"I think it’s going to be shared around," Matheny said. "We’re not ruling out an occasional day in centerfield if things line up perfectly with the right style pitcher that we think is going to produce more groundballs, depending on the field. For example, the park here in San Francisco is not very conducive to a non-centerfielder who plays centerfield. It’s a big yard to cover. We’re not ruling out that’s an option.

"We’re also going to try and get everybody else a day here and there and kind of spread it around. We’re going to try and be as creative as possible to get him playing time and make sure our other guys are getting the time that they deserve as well."
