Matt Adams went 3-for-5 with two home runs, six RBI and two runs scored against the Rockies on Monday.
Adams is now 7-for 23 (.304 BA) with two home runs, eight RBI and three runs scored over his last seven games as he continues to come back into form after an extended trip on the disabled list. Although his power is only now starting to come around, he has managed to hit for average in the early going (.328 BA) which is a great sign of what is in store as we reach the midway point now that he is putting it all together.

Aramis Ramirez confirmed that 2015 will be his final season.
Ramirez will turn 37 in June in what will be his 18th major league season. He was a legitimate 30-home run threat during the prime of his career, but now here we are 10 years past that prime and he's more of a 15-home run threat these days. Injuries were a big part of his decline and he's missed an awful lot of games over the years, but considering how bad the third base position looks this year, one last go-around with A-Ram might not be the worst thing in the world. Just make sure you have a viable back-up option. Analysis: Howard Bender
