2014

2013

Taveras was already the top hitting prospect in the St. Louis system when he hit a blistering .386 for Low-A Quad Cities in 2011, but he was even more impressive in 2012 when he played all season with Double-A Springfield. With 67 extra-base hits, 10 steals, and a .321 batting average, the 20-year-old Taveras already looks like a complete player. Even better, his strikeout rate improved significantly in 2012 (8.5 AB/K in 2012, 5.9 AB/K in 2011). While he may not win a spot in the spring, he should find himself in St. Louis - possibly for good as early as 2013. Buy him before it's too late.

2012

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.
