Cardinals | Matt Adams exits with back injury

Thu, 26 May 2016 17:22:33 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams (back) was removed from the game against the Washington Nationals Thursday, May 26, due to stiffness in the middle part of his back. OF Brandon Moss moved from left field to first base, with OF Jeremy Hazelbaker sliding over to left field from center field and OF Randal Grichuk entering the game to play center.

Fantasy Tip: Adams was 12-for-23 (.522) in his last eight games with three doubles, three homers and nine RBI, with his batting average going from .275 to .320 over this stretch. The severity of his injury is not yet known, so check back occasionally for updates on his status.

Cardinals | Matt Adams draws in at 1B

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:46:24 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is starting at first base and hitting fifth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Tuesday, May 24. 1B Brandon Moss will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Adams has two home runs in his last three games and has knocked in 13 runs in 15 games in May. Play the hot hand and run with him in daily and traditional setups if you own him. Despite a small sample size, Adams has four hits (two doubles) and an RBI in nine career plate appearances against Hammel.

Cardinals | Matt Adams heating up

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:23:23 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams has homered twice in his last three games and has 13 RBI in 15 games in May.

Fantasy Tip: Adams, who is hitting .289/.347/.500 with five home runs and 19 RBI on the year, could continue to see more playing time over Brandon Moss at first base if he stays hot. Keep running with him as a midrange power option in daily formats and look to add him if you need help at first base in deep mixed leagues if he's available.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss starting Monday

Mon, 23 May 2016 12:54:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss is starting at first base and is hitting fifth against Chicago Cubs SP John Lackey Monday, May 23. 1B Matt Adams will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Moss is hitting just .218 but has eight home runs and 22 RBI on the season. He has good numbers against Lackey in his career, hitting at a clip of .364 with two RBI in 12 plate appearances. Moss certainly profiles as a fine value pick in daily setups today.

Cardinals | No Brandon Moss, Matt Adams

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:45:19 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1Bs Brandon Moss and Matt Adams are not in the starting lineup Friday, May 20. 3B Matt Carpenter is starting at first base, and SS Ruben Tejada is starting at third base and batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Moss and Adams have been splitting time at first base, but the left-handed hitters will receive the night off against the southpaw, so sub them out where you can in seasonal leagues. Adams has swung the better bat of late with a .314/.368/.429 slash line and 11 RBI through 38 plate appearances in May. Tejada is nothing more than a desperation flier in all fantasy formats Friday.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss playing 1B

Wed, 18 May 2016 14:41:19 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss is starting at first base and is hitting sixth against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Chris Rusin Wednesday, May 18. 1B Matt Adams will start on the bench against the lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Moss he's back in the lineup against a lefty, and he's hitting just .192 with two RBI against southpaws this year in 26 at-bats. Rusin isn't the most feared lefty, but Moss' daily upside is low with the lefty-on-lefty matchup.

Cardinals | Matt Adams in cleanup spot

Tue, 17 May 2016 13:48:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is starting at first base and hitting cleanup against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Tuesday, May 17. 1B Brandon Moss starts on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Adams has garnered more playing time at first than Moss of late, and Adams is hitting .310 (9-for-29) with a homer and six RBI so far in May. The burly left-handed slugger has plenty of power and has a decent matchup to take advantage of in daily games. He's batting .295 with all three of his long balls against righties in 2016.

Cardinals | Matt Adams, Kolten Wong sit

Sat, 14 May 2016 16:12:37 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams and 2B Kolten Wong are out of the lineup Saturday, May 14, against left-handed Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir. 1B Brandon Moss is hitting cleanup, and 2B Jedd Gyorko is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Moss is hitting slightly better against lefties this season, which may seem strange as a left-handed hitter. He's an all-or-nothing lower-middle option with plenty of major and not a lot of contact. Gyorko has yet to hit his stride and is just 3-for-20 (.150) this month. The numbers don't get much better against lefties, either. Pass on him today.

Cardinals | Matt Adams hitting cleanup again

Fri, 13 May 2016 16:49:09 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is hitting cleanup for the second straight day against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Ross Stripling Friday, May 13. 1B Brandon Moss will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: The Cards are riding the hot hand with Adams right now. Adams recorded three hits and drove in three runs Thursday night and is hitting .360 with a home run and five RBI in May. Ride the hot hand in daily leagues tonight against Stripling.

Cardinals | Matt Adams collects three hits

Fri, 13 May 2016 05:03:32 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams had three hits Thursday, May 12, in a 12-10 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Adams improved his batting average to .286 this season.

Fantasy Tip: Adams has been a success story early on. After a .240-5-24 campaign where he was limited to just 60 games in 2015, he has shown signs of snapping out of last year's doldrum. As long as Adams can stay away from injuries, he should be considered for your fantasy lineup.
