RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After a blistering campaign with rookie-league Johnson City in 2010, Taveras topped himself in Quad Cities last year, establishing himself as the top hitting prospect in the St. Louis system. He hit an unreal .386 with 40 extra-base hits in 308 at-bats, but that was partially fueled by a .440 BABIP. The low at-bat total is a little disturbing - he suffered a few hamstring injuries last year - but to hit like he has at age 19 bodes well for his future. He could advance rapidly, especially if his batting eye keeps improving.
