Adams went 1-for-2 with a walk in Friday's 5-0 loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old extended his modest hitting streak to four games and was only one of two Cardinals hitters to get on base twice in what was a dominating effort by Jake Arrieta. Adams has endured an injury-shortened second half of the season, but is just two homers short of equaling the career-best 17 he hit in 2013.

Adams went 2-for-6 with a two-run homer as part of a 12-run effort by the Cardinals to top the Pirates on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The bomb was just the 13th of the season for the powerful Adams, who has just 261 at-bats on the year. Adams has struggled over the second half of the season, hitting just .190/.264/.418 over his last 30 games, although he missed a good chunk of time due to injury. In fact, the two-hit effort was his first multi-hit game since July 10th.

The Cardinals activated Adams (shoulder) from the disabled list Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Adams missed most of August due to his shoulder injury, but he is ready to rejoin the big club for the stretch run. Adams has had several runs as the Cardinals' everyday first baseman this season, but has spent a lot of time in a part-time role as well, and he figures to work in that role for now with both Matt Carpenter and Brandon Moss playing well at first base in Adams' absence.

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.
