The news was not surprising given Oscar Taveras' reaction after re-injuring his ankle, but the St. Louis Cardinals and Memphis Redbirds made it official last night.  Taveras is back on the disabled list.  This stint comes just weeks after he came off the disabled list after initially spraining his right ankle. Oscar Taveras returns to the Memphis DL. — Joe Strauss (@JoeStrauss) June 25, 2013 Taveras is the highest-ranked prospect in the Cardinals' organization and one of the highest-ranked prospects in all of baseball.  Prior to this season, he was listed as the third-best prospect by Baseball America.  And he's lived up to the hype, at least in the minors. Blogging for Susie In 46 games at Triple-A this season, Taveras is hitting .306/.341/.462 with five home runs.  He has managed to hit consistently no matter what level he's been promoted to.  In five minor league seasons, Taveras is a .320/.376/.517 hitter.  He's not far away from making his Major League debut if he can just stay healthy. Just a couple nights ago, Taveras had to leave the Redbirds' game with what appeared to be a re-aggravation of his high ankle sprain.  At the time, it was clear that Taveras was frustrated, and he seemed to know the injury was significant.  It turns out it was.  He has been battling this injury for months now, and the team will likely take things very slow on his return this time around.  This may delay Taveras' eventual call-up, but it's best to get him healthy anyway.
