|Matt Adams gets the start over Allen Craig |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(10/26/13) As expected, Matt Adams was in the starting lineup over Allen Craig at first base in Game 3 of the World Series against the Red Sox in St. Louis.
Craig, who is working back from a foot injury, served as the designated hitter in Game 1 and 2. He could be available as a pinch hitter and may see some action in the outfield or first base in Game 4 and 5 for the Cardinals.
|Matt Adams homers in Game 5 win |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(10/9/13) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams extended his team's two-run lead to four runs with a two-run home run in the eighth inning of Game 5 of the National League Division Series against the Pirates, which the Cardinals would go on to win 6-1.
Adams had yet to drive in a run in the series before Wednesday's eighth-inning homer, yet he played an important part in his team's advancement to the National League Championship Series by hitting .316/.381/.526 and scoring three times in 19 at-bats.
Adams enters the NLCS against the Dodgers with zero at-bats against Game 1 starter Zack Greinke and Game 2 starter Clayton Kershaw in his career.
|Matt Adams ending on a high note |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/26/13) If there's one player whose September performance has dramatically improved his stock for 2014, it's Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams.
I already liked him as a sleeper with Carlos Beltran entering free agency but thought I was reaching when I ranked him 20th at the position for 2014 just a couple weeks ago. He had done OK in a part-time role but hadn't exactly made headlines since homering three times way back in Fantasy Week 2 (April 8-14).
But since taking over at first base for an injured Allen Craig Sept. 4, that's all he's done, batting .338 (26 for 77) with eight homers and a 1.038 OPS. Maybe he just needed the repetition of an everyday role to lock in the swing that made him a .318 hitter with a .927 OPS over his minor-league career.
If there's an organization I trust with the development of young hitters, it's the Cardinals. They've struck gold the last two years with Allen Craig and Matt Carpenter, and you could argue Adams has a better pedigree than both. He's 25 and proving he's ready right at the time they have an opening for him. It's like they planned it all along.
I'm beginning to wonder if 20th is high enough.
|Matt Adams blasts 17th home run |
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(9/25/13) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams hit his 17th home run in Wednesday's win over Washington.
Adams finished 2 for 4 with two runs scored and the solo shot. Adams is hitting .285/.337/.511 on the season, a testament to the depth of St. Louis's minor league system.
|Matt Adams homers in return to starting lineup |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/21/13) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams went 3 for 5 with a ninth-inning home run and three RBI in his return to the starting lineup Friday. He served as a pinch-hitter Thursday while dealing with an elbow injury suffered in Wednesday's game.
Adams owns a .280/.336/.496 line with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in just 264 at-bats.
