"Minor League Guy" Makes an Impression

Oscar Taveras might just be the most popular "Minor League Guy" left in Spring Training...and he's got a Major League gaffe (see below) to thank.

You see, during Saturday's St. Louis Cardinals game against the New York Mets, the CG Operator for Fox Sports Midwest falied to update the lower third graphic when Taveras entered as a pinch runner.

Ooops.

But Taveras is more than just a "Minor League Guy".  I mean, sure, he's a Minor Leaguer, but dude is ranked as one of the top prospects in the Cardinals organization.

This past season, while playing A-ball, Tavares hit .386/.444/.584 in 78 games for the Quad Cities River Bandits.
