[edit] Biographical Information

Willy Taveras was signed by scout Winston Llenas for the Cleveland Indians in May 1999. He made his pro debut for the DSL Indians that summer.

Taveras was one of the best batters for the Dominican Republic in the 2009 World Baseball Classic, going 2 for 7 with six walks to lead the team in OBP. He was thrown out trying to steal in his lone attempt, gunned down by Kenley Jansen at third base in the 9th inning of a 3-2 loss to the Dutch national team. He was later thrown out at home by Concepción Rodríguez in a win over Panama. Surprisingly, Taveras did not score in 3 games despite his numerous times on base.
