10/7/2014 8:20:00 PM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams plays role of hero in Game 4 of NLDS.
Insight: With St. Louis unable to get anything going through six innings, Matt Holliday and Jhonny Peralta led off the seventh with back-to-back singles. Adams then deposited a Clayton Kershaw hanger into the right field bullpen, which resulted in sending the Cardinals to the NLCS.
 
9/20/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is a career .444 hitter (8-for-18) with a home run and a 1.278 OPS against Reds right-hander Mike Leake.
Insight: Adams has beat up on right-hand pitching this season batting .315 with 12 of his 15 homers and an .849 OPS.
 
9/14/2014 6:19:00 PM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams was not in Sunday's lineup after aggravating his left oblique injury on Saturday according to Stan McNeal of Fox Sports Midwest.com.
Insight: Adams first injured his oblique a week and a half ago but returned after just missing two games. Daniel Descalso and Xavier Scruggs will play first base until Adams can return. It is unclear how long the big lefty will be out this time.
 
9/12/2014 6:15:00 PM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is not in the starting lineup on Friday.
Insight: St. Louis is facing left-handed pitcher Jorge De La Rosa on Friday, so Mike Matheny is stacking his lineup with right-handed bats. Adams will probably be used as a pinch hitter.
 
9/9/2014 10:53:00 PM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams went 2-for-4 with a double in a losing effort against the Reds on Tuesday.
Insight: Adams has struggled so far this month, so the multi-hit game is nice to see. Adams is hitting .291 with 15 home runs and 63 RBI this season.
 
9/6/2014 10:18:00 PM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams hit his 14th home run of the season on Saturday in his return from his left oblique injury.
Insight: Adams has had a solid season, but had been struggling late, probably partly because of his oblique injury. So it was nice to see the big first baseman slug a home run on Saturday. Adams is hitting .291 with 48 extra-base hits and 59 RBI this year.
 
9/6/2014 3:08:00 PM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams (left oblique) is back in the starting lineup for Saturday's game
Insight: Adams has been solid, batting .292 with 13 HR and 57 RBI, but without as much power as expected, considering he hit 17 homers in 296 at-bats last season.
 
Cold9/5/2014 10:43:00 AM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams injured his left oblique in his final at-bat Wednesday night, missed Thursday's game and is questionable for the important weekend series with the second-place Brewers.
Insight: Xavier Scruggs made his major league debut at first base Thursday and went 0-for-3. He put together a solid season at Triple-A Memphis, but who knows what he could produce under the pressure of a major league pennant race.
 
Cold9/5/2014 3:57:00 AM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams injured his left oblique in his final at-bat Wednesday night, missed Thursday's game and is not in the lineup Friday for the start of an important weekend series with the second-place Brewers.
Insight: Daniel Descalso is getting the start at first base, but his fantasy value is minimal based on his performance over the first 138 at-bats.
 
Cold9/4/2014 6:28:00 PM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is day-to-day with an oblique injury.
Insight: It was intially though St. Louis was sitting down Adams because of his struggles at the plate, registering one hit in his last 11 at-bats and posting a career .143 mark against the Brewers starter Wily Peralta. That however, is not the case as Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak revealed that Adams strained his oblique. The 26-year-old Xavier Scruggs will make his major league debut at first base on Thursday.
 
Cold9/4/2014 4:03:00 PM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Brewers.
Insight: Adams is struggling with one hit in his last 11 at-bats and is a career .143 hitter against the Brewers starter Wily Peralta. Mike Adams will likely play Friday. The 26-year-old Xavier Scruggs will make his major league debut at first base on Thursday.
 
Cold9/4/2014 1:41:00 PM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is 2-for-14 in his career against Brewers starter Wily Peralta.
Insight: Adams has started September a bit cold with one hit in 11 at-bats to start the month. He has also struck out in each of the last six games. It would probably be best to sit the big first baseman down on Thursday.
 
8/22/2014 10:13:00 PM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk Friday against Philadelphia.
Insight: It was his first home run since July 19. Adams has walked just 16 times all season, but seven have come in August. He's managed to bat .309 with 13 homers, 56 RBI and an .825 OPS in 421 at-bats.
 
Hot8/22/2014 10:03:00 AM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is a career 5-for-11 (.455) hitter against Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick.
Insight: Adams went through a major cold streak at the beginning of August but has bounced back in a big way. Before his 0-for-3 on Wednesday, he had a seven-game hitting streak, going 12-for-29 (.414) with five RBI during that stretch. There's a good chance he starts another hitting streak on Friday.
 
Cold8/11/2014 10:16:00 PM
Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams has gone 2-for-21 with seven Ks in his last five games.
Insight: Adams' average dropped to .304 after he went 0-for-5 Monday at Miami. Put him on the bench until he shows signs of coming out of his slump.

Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is 6-for-8 with a home run and a 2.000 OPS versus Milwaukee right-hander Matt Garza.

Description: Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is not in Saturday afternoon's starting lineup.
