Found September 19, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams has been dealing with elbow issues over the past year. The ailment crops up from time to time, and last night was one of those unfortunate occasions. Adams was forced to exit Wednesday's contest against the Colorado Rockies after aggravating his right elbow injury, and Ian McCue of MLB.com believes it's unlikely the slugger will suit up for today's series finale. After the game, Adams told reporters that he injured the elbow during his final at-bat in the sixth inning. The elbow hadn't been giving him problems, but he felt more pain than usual during his final at-bat. "We've been doing treatment on it and it's been feeling good," Adams said, his lips pursed in vivid frustration. "Just that one swing tonight, that changeup off the end of the bat, is the one that did it." The elbow required season-ending surgery in August of 2012, and it's been something that has given Adams issues on and off since. Manager Mike Matheny said the injury wasn't surprising, but he said the team would have to wait at least a day to see what they were dealing with. "This wasn't a surprise because he's had periods of it here for a while," Matheny said. "So we knew it wasn't something completely out of nowhere. We'll probably just have to get a better look and see exactly what we're dealing with." While he's only registered 258 at-bats, Adams has been a key producer for the Cardinals this season. The 25-year-old has hit .271/.326/.481 with 12 doubles and 14 home runs. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

The St. Louis Cardinals Versus Left Handed Pitching

  The St. Louis Cardinals struggle against left-handed pitching so goes conventional wisdom. I really can’t remember a time that this wasn’t said. During the 80’s, The Cards struggled against lefties like Sid Fernandez (as if any of The Cardinals today have anything at all to do with the players in the 80′s) while being able to score runs off of great right-handers like...

Because did you know that there are about a million YouTube videos of Adam Wainwright dancing...
