Cardinals | Oscar Taveras pushing for a promotion

St. Louis Cardinals OF Oscar Taveras is inching closer to earning a promotion to the big leagues after hitting .359 and slugging .641 in his last 10 games with Triple-A Memphis. Taveras' ankle injury is no longer a concern. OF Randal Grichuk's promotion has given Taveras the chance to show that he's capable of playing center field, as well. However, the team won't discredit the play of OF Jon Jay, who is receiving more playing time over OF Peter Bourjos.

Fantasy Tip: As of now, promoting Taveras would be a luxury for the Cardinals. Taveras is very close, and an injury to one of the outfielders currently on roster would likely force their hand. If Taveras is out there in mixed leagues, now would be the time to grab him and get ahead of the game. In case you needed any more reason to ditch Bourjos, you have it.
