There is a report out this evening that Cardinals top prospect, Oscar Taveras, will be called up to the big league club. Here is Bob Rains, a Cardinals beat writer for STLSportspage, via Twitter:
Oscar Taveras time about to begin in StL. Word from a source in Memphis is that he is on his way to the majors. #STLCards STLCards— Rob Rains (@RobRains) May 31, 2014
It is unknown at this point who is getting sent down, but I wonder why the Cardinals waited this long to call him up if they were going to call him up before the Super Two deadline.
I imagine Taveras will play centerfield every day, but who knows at this point. More on the call up as we learn more about the Cardinals plans. Either way, make sure you go pick him up off your league waiver wire as soon as possible, The Cardinals aren't calling him up to sit on the bench. He will be playing every day.
From Max Wildstein, on Twitter:
Oscar Taveras was just scratched from the Memphis lineup. Get excited #STLCards fans, Oscar's coming up.— Max Wildstein ⚾️ (@MaxWildstein) May 31, 2014
Cardinals beat writer Derrick Goold has confirmed, via Twitter, the Taveras call up:
