Taveras rejoining Cards in San Francisco

The Cardinals’ top prospect is returning to the Majors, as Oscar Taveras was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Monday. He will take the place of right-hander Jorge Rondon, who was optioned to Memphis following Sunday’s game and will be available for Memphis’ Monday game.

Rondon made his Major League debut on Sunday against the Dodgers, throwing one scoreless inning of relief walking one.

Taveras, the No. 2 overall prospect according to MLB.com’s Prospect Watch, played in 11 games with the Cardinals from May 31 to June 11. He hit .189 (7-for-37) with a home run and two RBIs during that span. The Cardinals sent him out when they did so he could continue to get regular at-bats.

Over 62 games with Memphis this year, he’s hitting .318 with eight homers and 49 RBIs. The Cardinals made this move on the heels of scoring four runs in a four-game series in Los Angeles.

Maybe they should send Bourjos to Memphis.
Also trade some pitching to Tampa for Ben Zobrist.
Then get Cole Hamels from Philadelphia (which should have been done 1-1/2 years ago).
Totally frustrated. This team should be on track to win 97 games. The way it is now, the playoffs are not going to be an option.

Somebody with authority should DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!

I don’t know how to log in and add a comment to the comments stream at the bottom of articles.

Runners In Scoring Position are anathema to Cardinal hitters.

Taveras is a good minor league hitter.

All Cardinal hitters have adopted the strategy of taking a first pitch over the heart of the plate and then swinging at a piece of crap out of the strike zone. 0 and 2.

Holliday doesn’t have a lot of home runs because most of the pitches he swings at are 2 inches off the ground.

Shelby Miller should be excused from the starting rotation.
