|Oscar Taveras may have to settle for bench role |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(11/24/13) The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Cardinals outfield prospect Oscar Taveras' role with the team for next season is now in question with the recent acquisition of center fielder Peter Bourjos from the Angels. Taveras had been considered as a potential starter in center field, but now he is a candidate to either start in right field or play a reserve role.
Taveras missed time last season with a high ankle sprain and underwent season-ending surgery on his foot in August, but he is expected to be ready for spring training.

(11/21/13) The Cardinals added top outfield prospect Oscar Taveras, infielder Jermaine Curtis and pitcher John Gast to the team's 40-man roster Wednesday.
Taveras, who was ranked the No. 3 prospect in baseball by MLB.com and Baseball America before the season, hit .306/.341/.462 with five home runs and 32 RBI in 173 at-bats with Triple-A Memphis. He is recovering from August ankle surgery and is expected to be ready by spring training.
Curtis hit .257/.355/.349 with five home runs, 49 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 370 at-bats with Triple-A Memphis. Gast went 2-0 with a 5.11 ERA in three starts with the Cardinals and 3-1 with a 1.16 ERA in seven starts with Triple-A Memphis.

(11/5/13) The Cardinals will consider playing Oscar Taveras in center next season, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
General manager John Mozeliak said Taveras would be considered for the spot if the team loses Carlos Beltran during the offseason. Taveras entered the season as one of the best prospects in baseball, but injuries limited his playing time. Taveras' strong prospect play is a reason the team doesn't need to go overboard with an offer for Beltran.
