Adams' absence from the lineup Sunday was the result of a lingering oblique injury, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The Cardinals are off Monday, but Adams' availability is considered day-to-day at this point. Even if he's able to play Tuesday, the team may have to back off him on occasion if the soreness persists. Adams denied being hurt when asked by reports Sunday morning, while the team is describing the injury as "tightness" while indicating that there is no structural damage.

Adams (oblique) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Brewers, Jim Hayes of FOX Sports Midwest reports.

After missing two games with an oblique strain, Adams will slot back in at first base and the cleanup spot in the order Saturday against right-hander Kyle Lohse. Adams' overall numbers are still strong, but he's batting just .222/.278/.327 since the All-Star break, so manager Mike Matheny may be inclined to give starts at first against left-handed pitching to new addition Xavier Scruggs.

Adams is dealing with a left oblique strain and should be considered "day-to-day," Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Adams was left out of Thursday's starting lineup, and may not be available at all for the night game. His status should be made clearer following batting practice, but if swinging a bat still causes discomfort to his ailing oblique, he could risk missing an extra day or two as a precaution.

Adams is out of the lineup Thursday against the Brewers, FOX Sports Midwest reports.

Adams is batting just .108 over his last 11 games and is 2-for-14 in his career against right-hander Wily Peralta, so manager Mike Matheny will turn to the newly-added Xavier Scruggs to man first in the opener against Milwaukee. Scruggs finished the season at Triple-A Memphis with a blistering .345/.427/.637 batting line in August (eight homers) and may push Adams into a platoon role if his success translates.
