Report: Matt Adams (quad) to undergo surgery Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:21 am ET) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams will undergo surgery to repair a torn quad on Friday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The team announced on Wednesday that Adams had been diagnosed with a strained left quad, which was expected to sideline the first baseman for three-to-four months. The timetable could mean that Adams won't play again this season. He has hit .243/.281/.375 with four home runs and 20 RBI in 144 at-bats.

The Cardinals' most-likely internal option to replace Adams is Mark Reynolds, though the team could explore other options outside the organization.

"He's been there for us so much this year," manager A.J. Hinch said, per MLB.com. "A couple of pitches got him and he got burned a little bit. It's difficult for him, and certainly not the way and indicative of how he's pitched this season. I feel bad for our team. We fight back like that and don't get the win."

Sipp (2-2) struck out two on the day but gave up a home run for his second consecutive appearance. He owns a 1.53 ERA and 20:3 K:BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings.

"[Thursday] is an off-day, so that's good timing," Perkins said. "I have been good this year. I have felt good. Ever since I took the last two weeks of the season off last year, I have felt good. So no worries, and I'm glad that I get a lot of opportunities to pitch."
