    Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras has died in a car accident in Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic, Dionisio Soldevila of ESPNDeportes confirms (via Twitter). Taveras’ girlfriend also reportedly passed away. A variety of outlets from the Dominican Republic had reported news of the accident. Taveras was 22 years old.

    Obviously, we have deep condolences to his family. We are still waiting for more details before issuing a full statement,” said Cardinals GM John Mozeliak, via MLB.com’s Jen Langosch (on Twitter).

    Taveras signed with the Cardinals in 2008 and, within a few years, became one of the top young talents in the game — he was widely regarded as a top-five overall prospect before both the 2013 and 2014 seasons. He had just begun his career in the big leagues, playing in 80 games with the Cardinals this season. Among his career highlights was a dramatic home run in Game 2 of this year’s NLCS against the Giants. Most prospect evaluators considered Taveras to have superstar potential.

    Funny story, he got suspended for pine tar and one of his first games back was against the Reds in Cincinnati and I was there. I was sitting down low on the 3rd base side and he was warming up. I kept yelling at the ump to check him for pine tar.

    It was pretty quiet and everyone on the field could hear it perfectly. Everyone around me was cracking up and even the ump almost smiled.

    Great memory.

    if the entire St Louis Cardinal baseball team died and the whole city was demolished with them?
