Matt Adams ranks second in NL with .329 average at break


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams enters the All-Star break with the second-best batting average in the National League, hitting .329/.345/.532 with 11 home runs and 41 RBI in 301 at-bats.

Adams has delivered elite production for the Cardinals despite drawing just nine walks during his 316 plate appearances, which gives him the second-lowest walk rate in the majors during the first half of the season. That, and a fortunate .376 BABIP, could precipitate a second-half swoon, though he hasn't cooled off a bit in July, hitting .347/.385/.551 with two home runs and eight RBI in 49 at-bats this month.


Hitters to target for the second half


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/13/2014) Need a sleeper for the second half? Matt Adams, Martin Prado, Manny Machado, J.J. Hardy and C.J. Cron are some of my favorites.

Check out my latest column to find out why.


Matt Adams clubs career-best four hits


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams totaled a career-best four hits during an 8-4 loss Sunday against Miami. Adams had an RBI double, one run and one stolen base.

Adams entered play Sunday with four hits in his previous five July games (17 at-bats).


Oscar Taveras recall to impact PT for some St. Louis players


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2014) Cardinals manager Mike Matheny talked to the media Monday following the recall of outfielder Oscar Taveras from Triple-A Memphis.

"We’re trying to generate some offense," Matheny said. "I don’t think this is going to be exactly like we saw before when we had him up where it was, 'Here you go, you’re going to be in there every day.' But we’re going to have to find some considerable time for him."

Taveras' promotion means Allen Craig will likely lose some playing time in right field and Matt Adams could lose some playing time to Craig at first base.

"I think it’s going to be shared around," Matheny said. "We’re not ruling out an occasional day in centerfield if things line up perfectly with the right style pitcher that we think is going to produce more groundballs, depending on the field. For example, the park here in San Francisco is not very conducive to a non-centerfielder who plays centerfield. It’s a big yard to cover. We’re not ruling out that’s an option.

"We’re also going to try and get everybody else a day here and there and kind of spread it around. We’re going to try and be as creative as possible to get him playing time and make sure our other guys are getting the time that they deserve as well."

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) What was once a day-to-day injury has devolved into something more for Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams, as his calf injury will force him to the disabled list.

Adams might not be available off the bench Thursday, but Matheny does not think it is a severe enough injury to warrant a trip to the disabled list.

Allen Craig and Matt Adams subjects of trade speculation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) The eventual promotion of top outfield prospect Oscar Taveras as early as this summer could result in a trade involving Matt Adams or Allen Craig, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman has speculated.

The subject was broached with Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak, who did not brush it aside. "I'm not going to get into who we might trade, but we can't rule out anything as the trade deadline approaches, he said.

The trade value of Craig has decreased with a horrid start. His latest slide, which has seen him manage just two hits in his last 20 at-bats, has lowered his stat line to .202/.252/.326.

Adams is batting .321 without the productivity of a typical cleanup hitter. He has just two home runs and nine RBI with 30 strikeouts in 131 at-bats.

Matt Adams hits second home run


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams only had one hit Wednesday against the Brewers, but he made it count in a 9-3 win.
