Adams was placed on the 15-day DL on Thursday due to left shoulder inflammation, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was scratched from Wednesday's start after waking up with a sore left shoulder, and things have escalated quickly, with the Cardinals wasting little time placing him on the DL. Randal Grichuk was recalled from Triple-A to fortify the offense and Brandon Moss now figures to take over the everyday duties at first base.

Adams was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to left shoulder soreness, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports.

EDGE Analysis

He apparently woke up with a sore shoulder and will be re-evaluated Thursday. Matt Carpenter moved over to first base and Jhonny Peralta got inserted into the lineup at third base. Consider him day-to-day for now, with an update on his status coming Thursday.

Adams is out of the starting lineup for a third consecutive game Saturday against Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Adams has been struggling at the plate since the All-Star break, failing to collect a multi-hit game since then while going just 10-for-51 (.196). As a result, he'll get another game off as Brandon Moss fills in at first base and bats cleanup.

Adams is out of the lineup Friday against the Braves, Jim Hayes of FOX Sports Midwest reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the return of Brandon Moss from the DL earlier in the week, Adams has seemingly been relegated to bench duty -- Friday marks his third straight absence. Adams will probably still see occasional starts against right-handers when Moss is resting or in right field, but his mixed-league appeal is diminishing in a hurry.

Adams is out of the lineup Thursday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

He will predictably start Thursday's game on the bench with lefty Brandon Finnegan on the mound for the Reds. Adams has been a league average hitter this season (.103 wRC+), but almost all of that work has come against right-handed pitching. Brandon Moss will get the start at first base and hit fifth Thursday.

Adams is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Jedd Gyorko will take over at first base against Bartolo Colon in the nightcap. Adams homered in back-to-back games last weekend, including a walkoff shot in the 16th inning Friday, but the highlights have been few and far between for Adams over the past two months. He could lose out on playing time when Brandon Moss (ankle) returns from the DL.

Adams went 1-for-6 with a walk and a walk-off solo shot in the bottom of the 16th inning to down the Dodgers 4-3 Friday night.

EDGE Analysis

Adams' batting average dropped three points to .261 -- its lowest point since May 3 -- but he made the most of his only hit in seven plate appearances during the marathon. It was the first baseman's 11th homer of the season, and the second career 16th-inning walk-off blast for Adams. The 27-year-old has struggled mightily in July, slashing .159/.213/.386 through 44 at-bats.

Adams is out of the lineup for Monday's series opener with the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Adams is hitting .264 with 10 home runs and 37 RBI on the season but will get the night off with southpaw Christian Friedrich on the mound for San Diego. The Cardinals will slide Matt Holliday to first base and insert Tommy Pham into the lineup in order to get as many right-handed hitters in the game as possible.

Adams is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Adams got the starting nod Saturday, but Sunday will mark the second time this series that he's been rested in favor of Matt Holliday at first base. There's no need to fret, however, as each of those days off will have come against an opposing left-hander. In Sunday's case, it will be southpaw Adam Conley taking the hill for the Marlins.
