Player Notes
Oscar Taveras hit a two-run homer Thursday in the Cardinals' 6-2 victory over the Padres.

Advice: It was Taveras's first homer since he went deep in his major league debut, and we don't believe it's a coincidence that it came on the day that Allen Craig was traded. Taveras now knows he'll be in the lineup whenever the Cardinals face a righty, and he could start against some lefties as well. He should have mixed-league value the rest of the way.

Oscar Taveras is starting in right field for the Cardinals on Thursday against the Padres.

Advice: St. Louis dealt Allen Craig to Boston on Thursday afternoon (along with right-hander) Joe Kelly for John Lackey, so the right field job now belongs to Taveras. With a clearer path to playing time, the talented 21-year-old is worth owning in all mixed fantasy leagues.

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak told Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he was never close to trading outfielder Oscar Taveras.

Advice: Taveras was floated as a possible centerpiece for trades involving players like David Price and Jon Lester, but the Cardinals got Justin Masterson from the Indians on Wednesday afternoon for outfield prospect James Ramsey and appear to be done dealing. According to Miklasz, the Cards' GM was "amused by the speculation that had him moving Taveras." Now if only manager Mike Matheny would play the ultra-talented 21-year-old on a regular basis.

Oscar Taveras is not in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Rays.

Advice: Taveras has started only two of the Cardinals' last seven games and will for some reason sit Tuesday versus a right-hander -- Rays starter Jake Odorizzi. Taveras hasn't performed very well in his first taste of the major league level, but he's not going to get any better with only sporadic at-bats. Allen Craig is in right field in Tuesday's series-opener versus Tampa Bay.
