Slew of Cards prospects earn Minor League awards
PITTSBURGH -- Several Minor League players in the Cardinals' system were presented with league season and postseason honors on Tuesday. Here is a rundown:

• Outfielder Oscar Taveras was named the Texas League Player of the Year, making this the second straight season a member of the Double-A Springfield club earned that honor. Matt Adams won the award in 2011. Taveras, who leads the league in batting average (.322), hits (146) and extra-base hits (64), was one of five Springfield players named to the Texas League postseason All-Star team.

Joining Taveras on the team are second baseman Kolten Wong, as well as pitchers Keith Butler, Seth Maness and Trevor Rosenthal.

• Outfielder Mike O'Neill and second baseman Starlin Rodriguez were named to the Florida State League postseason All-Star team. Through 107 games, Rodriguez has a .300 average, seven homers, 46 RBIs and 16 stolen bases for Class A Advanced Palm Beach.

O'Neill, who was recently promoted to Double-A, hit .342 with 35 RBIs in 108 games with Palm Beach. He finished 10 hits shy of breaking Palm Beach's all-time hit record of 141, which was established by Juan Lucena in 2006.

• Palm Beach catcher Cody Stanley has earned Player of the Week honors in the Florida State League for his production from Aug. 20-26. Stanley went 5-for-12 with two doubles, two homers and 11 RBIs in four games.
