Cardinals’ Taveras Homers in Debut

Cardinals’ Taveras Homers in Debut

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS, Mo.) — The highly anticipated debut of Cardinals’ prospect Oscar Taveras did not disappoint the St. Louis crowd. In his second at-bat in the Major League’s, Tavares homered to right for the first hit of his career as the Cardinals went on to beat San Francisco, 2-0.

“What a great day for him, one I’m sure he’ll never forget, and neither will we,” said St. Louis manager Mike Matheny. “For him to come up and do it in that situation, it’s kind of mind-boggling.”

Tavares was ranked the number two prospect in all of baseball prior to being called up on Saturday. The 21-year old was hitting .325 with seven home runs and 40 RBI’s in 49 games at Triple-A Memphis.

“Everybody knows it’s gone,” Taveras said of his first big league hit. “That was a good swing right there. I’m so happy right now.”

Michael Wacha pitched six shutout innings for the Cardinals, scattering three hits and striking out seven. There was a 51-minute rain delay in the seventh that ended Wacha’s outing.

Cardinals Call up Prospect Oscar Taveras

Cardinals Call up Prospect Oscar Taveras

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) — The St. Louis Cardinals are ready to see what outfielder Oscar Taveras can do in the big leagues as the team has called up their top prospect and will make his Major League debut Saturday against the San Francisco Giants.

Taveras has been widely regarded as one of the top minor league prospects in all of baseball.

Still just 21-years-old Taveras has hit in nearly every level of the minor leagues. In 49 games this season for Triple-A Memphis, Taveras hit .325 with seven home runs and 40 RBIs.

In six minor leauge seasons, Taveras is a career .321 hitter. The Cardinals are hoping he could help boost the team’s offense, as they are just 19th in the Majors in runs scored.

“It made sense in two ways,” Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said. “One, let Matt Adams heal, and two, it’s an opportunity to give Oscar some playing time and not have to worry about the balance of power and worry about who’s playing and who’s not.”

Taveras was signed by the Cardinals back in 2008 out of the Dominican Republic.
