Oscar Taveras Rumors
Cardinals prospect Oscar Taveras has returned to MDR Sports and longtime agent Melvin Roman, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (on Twitter). The 20-year-old left Roman's company in late January to join up with Rob Plummer but it would seem that he has had a change of heart.
Taveras is universally regarded as one of the top prospects in all of baseball with most prospect gurus having him in their top three. The outfielder reached Double-A last year and could join the Cards' varsity squad in 2013. In 531 plate appearances last season, Taveras posted a .321/.380/.572 slash line with 23 home runs.
