Player Notes
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Sunday that Oscar Taveras has made "huge adjustments" at the plate.

Advice: Taveras singled and doubled in the Cardinals' loss to the Phillies on Sunday, driving in the club's only run. He now has a six-game hitting streak, and even his outs have been well-struck. "He's really worked hard in the cage with John and David (hitting coaches John Mabry and David Bell) on his approach and shortening his swing a bit," said Matheny. "He's definitely taking steps in the right direction." It might be time to reconsider the talented 22-year-old outfielder in mixed fantasy leagues.

Taveras has a modest six-game hitting streak that has his average up to .238 on the year. He's also hitting .278 in August. The phenom is finally showing some life at the plate.
