Matt Adams is dealing with an oblique injury

6 Comments

Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is hitting just .125 (6-for-48) over his last 14 games and now Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that he’s dealing with a left oblique strain.

Adams reported feeling some soreness in his oblique after yesterday’s game. He’s considered “day-to-day” for now, but the Cardinals might have to make due without him for a little bit, as these type of injuries can be rather tricky.

On a related note, the Cardinals promoted Xavier Scruggs earlier today and he’s making his major league debut at first base in tonight’s game against the Brewers. The 26-year-old batted .286/.370/.494 with 21 home runs and 87 RBI over 135 games this season with Triple-A Memphis.
