One of the best prospects in baseball has new representation. Cardinals outfield prospect Oscar Taveras has dropped agent Melvin Roman for Rob Plummer, MLBTR has learned. It's a coup for Plummer, who now represents several of the game's best Dominican prospects, such as Miguel Sano of the Twins and Carlos Martinez, also of the Cardinals.
Taveras, 20, ascended to Double-A last year with great success. Most prospect gurus rank him in their top three, and he's got a good shot at making his Major League debut in 2013.
