Adams, who's slashing .154/.241/.154 over 29 plate appearances this season, is having an increasingly difficult time cracking the lineup, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "Whoever is really hot is going to get an opportunity," said manager Mike Matheny. "We've got to get Adams into that mix where he gets opportunities but he's still going to be a guy who's going to be coming off the bench every single day -- or, at least, a threat of coming in and changing the game with one at-bat."
Cishek (hip) came out of Friday's abbreviated rehab appearance without physical setbacks but is still trying to straighten out his mechanics, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "Cishek wasn't as sharp as he'd been previously," manager Scott Servais said. "He felt fine. I just think the release point, it wasn't coming out great. But nothing physical at all, it was more of a mechanical thing."
