News: Taveras is out of the Cardinals' lineup again Saturday. Impact: Prior to sitting Friday, Taveras had rattled off six straight starts in right field for St. Louis. He'll yield to Randal Grichuk for a second straight day with the Rockies once again starting a left-hander (Franklin Morales), but it looks like Taveras will play regularly against right-handers over the remainder of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Taveras is out of the lineup Friday against the Rockies. Impact: Taveras appears to have the everyday role again in right field for the most part, but will sit Friday with the left-handed Jorge De La Rosa on the mound for the Rockies. Randal Grichuk will start in right field and bat second for the Cardinals in his place.(RotoWire, )

News: Taveras started in right field and went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Saturday's win over the Brewers. Impact: Now in an ongoing battle for playing time as part of the Cards' outfield mix, Taveras' two-run shot off Kyle Lohse in the fourth inning stood as the eventual game-winning tally. Although his .230/.273/.311 line thus far has been a disappointment, Taveras could quick move to the front of the line for the starts in right field if he heats up during the stretch run.(RotoWire, )

News: Taveras remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Brewers, FOX Sports Midwest reports. Impact: Manager Mike Matheny will ride the hot hand of Peter Bourjos in center field, with Jon Jay in right for a second straight day. Taveras, meanwhile, is sitting for the sixth time in nine games and his opportunities will likely remain limited, as the Cardinals can ill afford to let him continue working through his struggles with the division up for grabs.(RotoWire, )
