There has been a lot of speculation as to when the St. Louis Cardinals will promote Oscar Taveras to the Major Leagues.

A scout believes that Taveras is in need of a new challenge.

“He's on cruise control," the scout said. "Gives away at-bats. Needs to play with more urgency. He'll get a wake-up call but it will take [the] big leagues to do it."

Taveras entered Wednesday hitting .304/.354/.509 through 175 Triple-A plate appearances.
