(BaseballStL) -- The Cardinals trimmed three from their roster today by optioning them to AAA. That in itself isn't a surprise, but one of the names may be.

Top OF prospect Oscar Taveras.

The 21-year-old has never been healthy here in camp after recovering from offseason ankle surgery and then suffering a hamstring pull.

The move could be a bit of a message to Taveras. If you can't stay healthy and play, you won't be around. He'll report to minor league camp tomorrow.

Eric Fornataro and Audry Perez were the other two optioned along with Taveras.
