St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak talked Friday, Nov. 22, about the impact of the deal for OF Peter Bourjos, and what it means for prospect OF Oscar Taveras. "When you look at what this means for Oscar...," Mozeliak said. "It's still intriguing for us to (see) him on our club in some way, but clearly it takes a lot of pressure (off) him necessarily in center field. Our expectations are obviously for him to have a healthy spring training and sort of determine what makes the most sense. At the very least you look at this club now and it can change the complexion of the bench with more power off of it depending on who is playing on that given night."
Fantasy Tip: The GM seems to hint there is a possibility Taveras could be used as a fourth outfielder, and that would obviously hurt his fantasy value. It isn't out of the realm of possibility that Taveras could start the year in Triple-A to keep him playing full time, too, and then come up if injuries open up a starting spot. There is still a lot to be determined, and fantasy owners in keeper leagues certainly want to hang onto the dynamic outfielder who has a really bright future.
