Matt Adams not in Cardinals lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds.
Adams had a big day Saturday, going 2 for 4 wth a home run after entering the day hitless in nine at-bats. Mark Reynolds will take his spot at first base Sunday.
The Cardinals are favorites (-115) in Cincinnati Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.
|2014 summary: After he hit 17 home runs in only 296 at-bats as a rookie in 2013, the projections had Matt Adams hitting 30-plus home runs in his first season as a full-timer last year. He barely made it halfway, casting doubt about his upside at age 26.|
Playing time status: One of the refrains of the Adams detractors is that he can't hit left-handed pitchers, which has certainly been true to this point in his career. He hit .190 with a .528 OPS against them in 2014 compared to .318 and .854 against righties. The Cardinals seem to be a little squeamish themselves, signing right-handed slugger Mark Reynolds as a possible platoon partner for Adams.
2015 outlook: Adams was a masher in the minors and started off his big-league career that way as well, so assessing him on last year alone isn't entirely fair. He's at an age, though, where players typically settle into who they're going to be, and without big-time power, he doesn't have much to fall back on. He doesn't walk at all, and though it hasn't cost him yet, his poor plate discipline could bring down his batting average. With power scarcer than ever, Adams' upside still makes him a middle-round pick on Draft Day, but understand he's no lock to meet it.
