Adames is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Jenny Cavner of ROOT Sports Rocky Mountain Region reports.

EDGE Analysis

Adames saw a string of starts last week when Daniel Descalso was on the paternity list, but his window for extensive action seems to have closed. Descalso hit a pinch-hit homer Friday and homered again while starting in Saturday's game, so he'll be rewarded with another start at shortstop Sunday. Adames may now have to settle for splitting duties at the position with Descalso in a best-case scenario.

Adames could see an uptick in playing time with Trevor Story (thumb) likely out for the year.

EDGE Analysis

Adames has acted as one of the main reserve infielders for Colorado all season, so it's not out of the realm of possibility for the switch-hitter to garner some extra starts as the season rolls along. That being said, his .186 batting average certainly doesn't help his cause in attaining this newly-opened role, which could lead the Rockies to instead rely more upon Daniel Descalso and his .324 average, as was the case Tuesday night. Adames' will likely remain in consideration for starts given his highly-touted defense, but unless his bat catches up with his glove, it'll be tough for manager Walt Weiss to pencil the 25-year-old into the lineup with regularity.

Adames is hitting second and starting at shortstop Wednesday against the Blue Jays, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.

EDGE Analysis

Trevor Story re-injured his finger in Tuesday's game and is out of the lineup Wednesday, so Adames gets the nod. It doesn't sound like Story's injury is too serious, and he will get a chance to get another day of rest with Thursday's off day, so Adames time as a starter could be limited. However, as the No. 2 hitter in Coors Field on Wednesday, he makes for a solid play in daily leagues.

Adames is in the lineup and batting second for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Adames will get the start at shortstop in place of Trevor Story. The 24-year-old is hitting .224/.333/.328 with seven RBI and five runs through 51 games as a reserve.

Adames is slashing .217/.319/.317 in 60 at-bats this season.

EDGE Analysis

Adames' slash line certainly isn't impressive, and he'll likely have trouble raising any of those numbers considering his highly limited role with the big league club. As long as D.J. LeMahieu, Trevor Story, and Nolan Arenado stay healthy, the switch-hitter will likely continue to sit the bench with regularity.

Adames went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in Saturday's 5-1 victory over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The 24-year-old blasted a two-out, two-run shot off reliever Jared Hughes, adding to the Rockies' lead and marking the first time he'd gone deep in 106 major league at-bats. Despite the positive development, Adames is receiving limited playing time, and only slashing .184/.262/.263 in 38 at-bats this season.

Adames has a .167/.250/.167 line after appearing at the plate 41 times across 26 games this season.

EDGE Analysis

With DJ LeMahieu back from a brief injury, Adames will be seeing much less time on the field. This comes as a relief to the Rockies, for Adames has the worst batting average on Colorado's roster among players with more than 25 at-bats and has more strikeouts than hits (nine and six respectively).

Adames is batting seventh and starting at second base Monday versus the Reds, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Adames is filling in for the second time in three days for D.J. LeMahieu, who has had some troubles with hamstring soreness over the weekend. The switch-hitter will have to hit against right-hander Dan Straily, which could pose a tough matchup considering Adames' .515 OPS against righties in 32 big league at-bats against them last season.

Adames will start the season as the primary utility infielder off the bench now that Daniel Descalso will begin the season on the disabled list.

EDGE Analysis

Adames was in the running for the starting shortstop job this spring, but he was relegated to a bench role after Trevor Story thrashed Cactus League pitching. The switch-hitter won't get a ton of playing time as a reserve, but he should be the first one of the bench if anyone on the infield needs rest given his ability to play shortstop, second base, and third base.

Adames is among the candidates being considered to fill the temporary vacancy the Rockies may have at shortstop to begin the season if Jose Reyes is suspended.

EDGE Analysis

Trevor Story reached the 20-20 plateau between Double-A and Triple-A last season, but the Rockies may want him to receive additional seasoning in the minors early on to avoid using an entire year of service time in 2016. Meanwhile, Adams hit .311/.362/.438 with 11 homers and 11 steals in 116 games at Triple-A Albuquerque last season, but he struggled in his limited chances with the Rockies to the tune of a .245/.298/.302 line in 53 at-bats. That he's already debuted in the big leagues should at least be a small mark in Adames' favor if he proves ready to handle the assignment this spring.
