MATT ADAMS RUMORS & GOSSIP

If Adams hits lefties, the Cardinals have an everyday first baseman

ST. LOUIS -- Batting left-handed is not a mandatory requirement for starting at first base in the National League. It only seems that way. Twelve of the 15 clubs list a lefty hitter as their primary first baseman on mlb.com's depth charts and two others, the Nationals and Marlins, started a lefty at the position in 2014. That leaves Arizona's Paul Goldschmidt, the league's premier...

Matt the Bat: A look at Adams’ offense

The pride of Slippery Rock, Matt Adams earned himself an everyday spot in the Cardinal lineup for the 2014 season after excelling in part-time duty for the Birds on the Bat the year prior. The free agent departure of Carlos Beltran opened up a spot for Allen Craig to return to right field and “Big City” to slot in at first base. Cardinal fans teemed with anticipation, and rightly...

Cardinals search for right fielder compliment to first baseman Matt Adams

Matt Adams struggled to perform against left handed pitchers this year. He  hit just .190 with 23 hits against left handed pitchers compared to his .318 average with 129 hits this year against righties. The Cardinals were on the search for a compliment for Adams against right handers.  With the tragic death of outfielder Oscar Taveras the Cardinals now are in need of an outfielder...

It’s...

Waiting for the regression of Matt Adams

After the 2013 season, it seemed impossible that Allen Craig would be an afterthought this season as Matt Adams has taken over the darling position as the Cardinals favorite flavor on offense. And rightly so. While Craig has had a hard time getting going this season, Adams has taken the world by storm by batting .325 with .532 slugging percentage and an impressive .376 wOBA....

Lynn (8-5) struck out seven and walked none before being taken out for the ninth after throwing 108 pitches. It's the first time Colorado has been held scoreless at...

Matt Adams Really Loves His Dad

Big City.  Big Country.  Big Mayo. There’s a reason we call Matt Adams Big Fill-In-The-Blank on this blog.  There are so many nicknames floating around for him, all based on the idea that he’s a big guy.  On a weekend where we lost a pop culture legend, though, it seems appropriate to reach back into Casey Kasem’s heyday to pull out another nom de plume. The Big Bopper...

For Matt Adams, hitting lefties is serious business

JUPITER, Fla. -- A group of St. Louis Cardinals that included Matt Adams had just finished an agility drill during which much laughter was heard as players shuffled from cone to cone at the quick commands of trainer Rachel Balkovec. Think "Simon Says" for big leaguers. "That looked like a lot of fun," Balkovec was told afterward. She thought so, too, partly because she had been able...

By the numbers: Matt Adams among MLB Fantasy Sophomore hitters ready to contribute

Matt Adams, 1B, St. Louis Cardinals – Over 319 plate appearances last season all Matt Adams did was mash. He struggled to find playing time (those PAs came at a 2.95 per game clip) but was a strong hitter when in the game for the Cards. With 17 home runs, 46 runs scored and 51 batted in and a .284 batting average Adams had a fine rookie season – enough to earn himself the starting...
