Latest Update Matt Adams is not in the Cardinals starting lineup on Sunday. Sun Sep, 14, 12:11 PM
This behemoth has prodigious power, run-producing qualities and pretty good plate coverage. Can also hit for a very solid average.
Flaws: : Needs more work on his defense at first base. Doesn't have much base-stealing speed. Could stand to draw a few more walks in the bigs.
He usually starts when the Cardinals face a right handed starting pitcher. However, they are going to start Daniel Descalso at first base in place of Adams. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
On a good note for owners, Adams has now homered in two his last three games. However, those are his only two hits in his past three games. He has 6 RBIs in the last three games, and Adams can continue to be started in your lineup. He tends to come down with various little ailments but he typically doesn't miss much time because of them. Adams is enjoying a nice season and has the capability to reach 20 home runs by the end of the year.Analyst: Colby Conway
After missing the last two games with an oblique issue, Adams returned in style with a home run in his fist at-bat. He was actually struggling, going just 2-for-16 over five games prior to sitting with the injury, so this was definitely a game both he and his fantasy owners needed.If his bat stays hot, there's no reason the Cardinals don't keep him in the lineup every day.Analyst: Howard Bender
He missed two games with the oblique strain, which is not much time to heal. He has been much cooler in the second half, and as the Cards fight for the division, he may get some time off to let recently promoted Xavier Scruggs show what he can do against left handed pitching.Analyst: Ivar G.
