Cardinals promote Oscar Taveras to majors

MLB: Spring Training-Miami Marlins at St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals are set to call up outfielder Oscar Taveras from Triple-A Memphis.

Taveras, 21, is the talk of the Cardinals minor league system after getting off to a .325/.373/.524 line with seven home runs and 40 RBI in his first 49 games at Triple-A.

The Cardinals had delayed promoting Taveras in order to try and keep his service clock from ticking. He will move to right field for the time being with Matt Adams out of the lineup.
