Cardinals | Matt Adams activated, Oscar Taveras sent down

The St. Louis Cardinals activated 1B Matt Adams (calf) from the disabled list Friday, June 13, and optioned OF Oscar Taveras to Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals just didn't have the room on roster or in the outfield to justify keeping Taveras on the major league roster. Perhaps they aren't sold on him manning center field just yet. This means that Peter Bourjos and Jon Jay will likely continue to serve in a platoon in center with Allen Craig moving back to right field. It may not be long before Taveras is back, though, if the platoon option in center doesn't work out. It wouldn't be wise to outright drop him if you went through the trouble to acquire him.
