  • Taveras is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets. The 21-year-old popped a home run off the bench Saturday, his second homer in three games, but Taveras remains absent from the starting lineup. He is sitting this time in favor of Steven Duggar in center field. Taveras is batting .279/.311/.442 in 17 games with the big-league team after slashing .294/.335/.485 at Triple-A Round Rock this season.

  • Taveras went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Mets. Taveras entered the game off the bench, pinch hitting for left fielder Brad Miller in the seventh inning and then finishing out the game in center field. His ninth-inning homer gave the Rangers added insurance, and it was his second blast in the last three games. The outfielder is outperforming his expected average and slugging rates, but Taveras has reduced his groundball percentage by 20 points (54.8% in 2021 to 34.4% in 2022) and increased his flyball rate (17.4% to 37.5%).

  • Taveras went 2-for-3 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Royals. Taveras was the Rangers' lone source of offense when he delivered a leadoff home run in the fifth inning. It was his first homer of the season, though he has only 40 plate appearances at the big-league level. Taveras has gotten regular run in center field since being recalled June 13, and he has maintained a .289 average with five runs scored and a stolen base.
