Taveras Done in 2013

Per multiple reports, one potential option to give the sluggish offense a boost has been shut down for surgery. Oscar Taveras has missed nearly all summer due to a high ankle sprain that will now push the #1 prospect to an unknown status going into 2014. The Cardinals will now look to improve the bench in other ways, as Taveras is the second Memphis center fielder to miss out on an opportunity. Thomas Pham was also lost earlier this season, but St. Louis does have open spots on the 40-man roster.
