Adams was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Friday.

Adams' quadriceps injury was expected to cost him a fair amount of time, so it's not surprising that the club moved him to the 60-day disabled list to open up a 40-man roster spot. His timetable remains unclear at this point, but a late season return seems the best-case scenario.

Adams will undergo surgery on his torn right quadricep, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Adams will be sidelined until at least late August and could possibly be out for the entire season. After the surgery is completed, the exact length of his sidelining will be known.

Adams will miss the next 3-to-4 months due to a right quadriceps strain, Jennifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Adams' injury could end his season, although Langosch reported that it's still undetermined whether the strain will require surgery. Regardless, the quad strain is severe enough to sideline him until late August or early September at the earliest.

Adams (quad) will miss significant time with his injury and could require surgery, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The Cardinals are still determining the grade of Adams' quad injury, but he is facing an absence well beyond the minimum 15 days, and would likely miss several months if it is determined he will need to go under the knife. Mark Reynolds will take over at first base initially, but the Cardinals may try to go in a different direction once the severity of Adams' injury is revealed.

Adams (strained right quadriceps) was placed on the 15-day DL Wednesday.

After being removed from Tuesday's game this seemed like a strong possibility, and now it is official. Adams will now be out until mid-June, and the Cardinals will scramble to get production at first base (not that they were getting much from Adams prior to his injury). Mark Reynolds is a pretty low-end option as an everyday first baseman, but the Cardinals may not have much choice for now. Catcher Ed Easley was called up as a corresponding move.

Adams was removed from Tuesday's game with a strained right quad, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports.

It's not yet clear how long the quad injury will keep Adams sidelined, but there's a chance it could land him on the disabled list. Expect the Cardinals to provide another update on Adams' status after the team doctors are able to examine him further.

Adams was lifted from the Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks after suffering an apparent right leg injury while rounding first base during his sixth-inning at-bat, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Adams was grabbing at the upper portion of the leg after reaching first and was unable to run to second base on what would have been a certain double. After consulting with trainers, Adams was quickly pulled from the game, with Mark Reynolds coming on to pinch run for him. The Cardinals should have an update on his injury after the game, but if the issue proves to be more than a day-to-day concern, Xavier Scruggs would likely be promoted from Triple-A Memphis.

Adams went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer in Wednesday's win over the Mets.

The homer put the finishing touch on a six-run fourth inning for the Cardinals, and it's a big one for Adams -- prior to Wednesday, his line for the month of May was a pathetic .160/.176/.160, with no homers and 11 strikeouts against one walk. He'll need to keep up the power if he wants to remain in the middle of the Cards' lineup.

Adams is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets.

With the Cardinals facing left-handed Jon Niese, it's no surprise to see Mark Reynolds in the lineup over Adams. While he's largely struggled over the last few weeks, Adams did manage a multi-hit game Monday night, albeit with both hits being singles. He only has 20 at-bats against southpaws this season, and the results (.340 OPS) have been in line with expectations.

Adams is out of the lineup Friday.

He is 1-for-29 at the plate over his last 10 games, lowering his average from .298 to .236 over that span. Mark Reynolds gets the start at first base even with a righty on the mound for the Tigers.
