Oscar Taveras - OF STL

Recommended Posts

The cardinals offense has been in a funk and lacking some power in the lineup. Hopefully well get an early call up now that 6 service years shouldn't be an issue anymore.

The move makes sense. Kid is talented and the Cards could use a spark. Losing to the Mets right now.

He's been taking alot of walks this year compared to previous years so that's at least encouraging.

Hopefully he's fine. If he can't stay healthy playing with kids in a short minor league season, there's zero chance he can stay healthy with the big boys in the MLB over 162 games.

Apparently he tweaked it stepping on a bag. Not sure that affects his CF play beyond availability

He apparently has problems with bases. Last year he tore up his ankle sliding into 2nd and now it's another base-related injury. Fundamentals Oscar, fundamentals!

who the hell is bob netherton

Apparently a guy who watches the games and constantly Tweets about them. He said Oscar turned his ankle and the move was probably precautionary. We know 1 thing for certain, Oscar left the game after reaching 1st base so something must be up.

Well, the boxscore tells us he was removed for a pinch-runner in the 7th after a single to center. Best case scenario is that he tweaked something and was taken out for precautionary reasons.

Bob said he walked off without assistance, day to day at worst I'm guessing.

son of a...

on a positive note, per yahoo: "Cardinals outfield prospect Oscar Taveras is making his first start of the season in center field for Triple-A Memphis Monday.

Advice: Taveras is hitting .297/.348/.500 with three homers and 12 RBI for Memphis this season, which includes a .368/.415/.526 line over his last 10 games. The Cards had been keeping the top prospect in the outfield corners, but it's clear that his surgically-repaired right ankle is feeling well enough for him to try center field again. With Peter Bourjos and Jon Jay sharing center field with the big club, Taveras could potentially force a promotion if he keeps hitting and shows he's comfortable in center."

Wait, is it his other ankle this time?

His surgically repaired ankle is his right ankle according to that yahoo blurb.

Bob said it was his left ankle that caused him to be removed from the game.

Is there a mistake here? Or is it actually the other ankle that caused him to be pulled from the game?

Cardinals outfield prospect Oscar Taveras will undergo season-ending surgery next week to repair a high right ankle sprain.

Taveras originally suffered the injury back in mid-May and has never been able to fully recover. It's a shame that we won't get to see his debut in 2013, but the ankle shouldn't be a long-term concern. Taveras will compete in spring training next year for an Opening Day roster spot. The top prospect's season ends with a .306/.341/.462 batting line with five homers and five steals over 46 Triple-A contests.

That quote was from August of 2013.

But just to confirm, it was his right ankle that he had surgery on, and it was his left ankle this time assuming all the sources are credible.

Yeah, after I posted it, I sort of thought putting that quote in there may not have been the best idea.

Is it just me, or is every time this thread gets bumped, your heart skips a beat or two?
