Cards Bring Back Taveras

The Cardinals recalled right fielder Oscar Taveras from Triple-A Memphis yesterday. Taveras made his major league debut earlier this season but was sent back to Memphis after batting .189 in 40 at-bats. The 22-year-old has dominated Triple-A ball this season however, batting .318 with eight homers and 49 RBI. To make room for Taveras, St. Louis optioned right-hander Jorge Rondon back to Memphis.
