Update: Matt Adams is day-to-day with a left oblique tweak.
Okay, so it's not because he's been stinking it up at the plate lately, it's because he's bothered by an oblique injury. That might make Xavier Scruggs look a little better as an option, especially if Adams is going to miss additional time. Consider him day-to-day.ANALYST: Howard Bender
