Minor Accomplishments — Week 2

The early stages of the MiLB season have brought loads of speculation with regard to Oscar Taveras and Stephen Piscotty, and which prospect the Cardinals will summon to St. Louis first. I'd love to be able to provide some clarity to that question, but frankly, such call-ups depend on so many different proprietary factors, and it'd be pretty stupid of me say something like...

Stephen Piscotty is not Oscar Taveras, and it’s not close

COMMENTARY | Spring Training 2014 was a big one for Stephen Piscotty, he stuck around big league camp all the way to the end. He had a very promising spring in which some called for him to make the major league roster out of spring. On the flip side, Oscar Taveras saw just six at-bats with the big club due to lingering ankle issues (whether mentally or physically). With their spring...

James Ramsey continues to mash the baseball, Oscar Taveras too

It was another 3-1 night as Memphis outlasted Iowa, Springfield did the same to San Antonio, and Palm Beach snuck past Charlotte. The only team on the wrong side of the score column was Peoria who continues to struggle to score runs. A few observations from Friday and the season really. Oscar Taveras is back and healthy. He has played all but one of Memphis’ games and is starting...

Oscar Taveras Needs to Find Motivation in Minor League Assignment

Oscar Taveras, one of the St. Louis Cardinals’ top prospects, was supposed to be competing for a spot on the 2014 major league roster at this point in the spring.  He was supposed to be earning at-bats, showcasing his talent and pushing manager Mike Matheny to make a very tough decision to send him to the minor leagues.  That decision was not so hard. Due to an ankle injury...

Who Stands To Gain From The Loss Of Taveras?

For the second year in a row it became the spring that never was for Oscar Taveras. The Cardinals’ top prospect was sent to minor league camp on Thursday after only two appearances that consisted of six at-bats and one hit. It was a pump fake of a start to the season for Taveras, who entered camp with as much hype internally with the organization as he did with the fan base. Yet...

Cardinals option Oscar Taveras to Triple-A Memphis

JUPITER, Fla. -- Coming into spring training, Oscar Taveras ranked at the top of the list of players the Cardinals -- and everyone else -- were most eager to watch. If anyone wants to watch Taveras now, they will have to go on the backfields at Roger Dean Stadium. The club's top prospect was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday afternoon after the Cardinals' 11-0 exhibition...

3 reasons why Oscar Taveras should begin the season with the St. Louis Cardinals

COMMENTARY | On Monday, we asked the question, “Where should Oscar Taveras begin the 2014 season?” The options were the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds and the MLB St. Louis Cardinals. We received a total of 188 votes and AAA received 109 and MLB received 79, or 58% to 42%. That wide of range is not surprising to me, after getting the feel from Cardinal Nation the past few weeks. I...

Which St. Louis Cardinals prospects could have an impact in 2014?

During a successful 2013 campaign, the St. Louis Cardinals relied heavily on a plethora of rookies who stepped up and established themselves as big time major league contributors.  Rookies may not have as big of a role in the Cards’ 2014 season, but they have players in the minors ready to step up nonetheless.  Here is a look at the Cardinal prospects who could have an impact...
