Matt Adams ends power drought in loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams provided some rare power Friday, in a 5-4 loss to the Phillies.

Adams homered for the first time since mid-July, as he slugged a solo homer in the third inning to extend an early lead. He finished the game 1 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout as the Cardinals fell.

Adams still ranks third in the National League with a .309 batting average, but he has just 13 home runs in 421 at-bats, compared, to 17 in 296 at-bats a year ago.

Matt Adams ranks second in NL with .329 average at break
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams enters the All-Star break with the second-best batting average in the National League, hitting .329/.345/.532 with 11 home runs and 41 RBI in 301 at-bats.

Adams has delivered elite production for the Cardinals despite drawing just nine walks during his 316 plate appearances, which gives him the second-lowest walk rate in the majors during the first half of the season. That, and a fortunate .376 BABIP, could precipitate a second-half swoon, though he hasn't cooled off a bit in July, hitting .347/.385/.551 with two home runs and eight RBI in 49 at-bats this month.

Oscar Taveras recall to impact PT for some St. Louis players
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny talked to the media Monday following the recall of outfielder Oscar Taveras from Triple-A Memphis.

"We’re trying to generate some offense," Matheny said. "I don’t think this is going to be exactly like we saw before when we had him up where it was, 'Here you go, you’re going to be in there every day.' But we’re going to have to find some considerable time for him."

Taveras' promotion means Allen Craig will likely lose some playing time in right field and Matt Adams could lose some playing time to Craig at first base.

"I think it’s going to be shared around," Matheny said. "We’re not ruling out an occasional day in centerfield if things line up perfectly with the right style pitcher that we think is going to produce more groundballs, depending on the field. For example, the park here in San Francisco is not very conducive to a non-centerfielder who plays centerfield. It’s a big yard to cover. We’re not ruling out that’s an option.

"We’re also going to try and get everybody else a day here and there and kind of spread it around. We’re going to try and be as creative as possible to get him playing time and make sure our other guys are getting the time that they deserve as well."
