I haven't read anything conclusive on his injury but I'm replacing him with Butler this week.
Groin injury sidelines Taveras

Cincinnati - Willy Taveras rounded second base and ran himself right onto the trainer's table.
The Rockies center fielder expects to miss tonight's game and possibly the entire Cardinals series with a tight right groin.
"I think it will only be a few days, three at the most," said Taveras, who never had suffered a right leg problem before Sunday. "A guy like me, I don't have power. My game is running (12 infield hits, nine stolen bases). So to help the team, my legs have to be healthy."
Taveras, thrown out by center fielder Josh Hamilton at third base when hurt, shook his head when asked about the poor timing of the injury. He has finally hit his stride offensively, batting .436 (17-for-39) with 12 runs in his past nine games. The Rockies already are without second baseman Kaz Matsui, who could be out until June with a disc injury in his back.
"It's something you don't expect, and you have to deal with it," Taveras said. "I don't think I will need (an MRI). I will be out there soon."
