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."

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.
