Cardinals | Oscar Taveras not ready
St. Louis Cardinals OF Oscar Taveras (foot) was still running with hesitation Thursday, Feb. 27, and the team won't clear him for spring action until he's ready to run at 100 percent intensity.
"He's just not quite there. I think he told you guys the other day that he was around 80 percent. But 80 percent isn't going to work right now. I think the medical team seems very confident that it is going to just take him pushing kind of through the last little steps more mentally, more than anything else, and just trusting it. Once we feel confident that he's not holding anything back, then we can use him in the games," manager Mike Matheny said. It's likely he starts the season in the minors now.
