Bold Predictions for Top Prospect Oscar Taveras in 2013
Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

St. Louis Cardinals’ top prospect Oscar Taveras made news this week, though, surprisingly, it wasn’t for his offensive prowess.

Rather, the 20-year-old outfielder officially switched agents, according to MLB Trade Rumors, dropping Melvin Roman in favor of Rob Plummer. With clients that include teammate Carlos Martinez, as well as the Twins’ Miguel Sano, Plummer now represents three of the sport’s top Dominican-born prospects.

Taveras will enter the 2013 season ranked as Prospect Pipeline’s third-best prospect behind Jurickson Profar and Dylan Bundy, respectively. After batting .321/.380/.572 with 67 extra-base hits last season for Double-A Springfield, a case can be made for him as baseball’s top prospect.
