Cardinals will eye Taveras in Memphis

Updated:

Oscar Taveras is a concensus top-five prospect in all of baseball for the second straight year, but once again he'll find himself in Triple-A Memphis, just one step shy of the big league level. So what does the St. Louis Cardinals organization need to see from Taveras before he gets the big call?

Taveras hit .306 with five home runs and an OPS of .803 for the Redbirds in 2013, but played in just 46 games, struggling with a high ankle sprain that ultimately ended his season early.

Fox13 Sports talked with Cardinals manager Mike Matheny and general manager John Mozeliak to find out just what the franchise needs to see before the prized prospect makes it to the big league level.
