Adams (chest) will start at first base and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, MLB.com reports. Adams returned to the spring lineup Monday as a designated hitter, marking his first Grapefruit League action in nearly two weeks after he left camp to undergo cardiac testing. Now that he's gained full clearance from doctors, Adams looks like he'll be ready to go for the start of the season. Adams remains firmly in the mix to win a reserve spot on the Mets' Opening Day roster.
Adams (chest) will serve as the designated hitter in Monday's spring game against the Marlins, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Adams has been sidelined since Feb. 25 while undergoing cardiac testing, but he was cleared to resume baseball activities last week and is now ready to get back into games. Adams, continuing his pursuit of a spot on the Mets' Opening Day roster, will hit cleanup in Monday's batting order.
Adams received good news regarding his cardiac tests and will resume baseball activities Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Adams will wind up missing slightly over a week for a heart-related scare, but apparently everything checked out just fine in the end. The missed time will make Adams' already tough task of cracking the Opening Day roster even more daunting, though he'll still have just shy of three weeks to make his case. Even when healthy, it may be tough for a 31-year-old corner bat coming off a down year to make the team, especially when Dominic Smith fits a similar profile but is seven years younger and coming off a much better season.
Adams (chest) has yet to rejoin the Mets for workouts since undergoing a cardiac screening last week, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. The Mets haven't offered an update on when Adams might be ready to resume baseball activities, but his ongoing absence will only continue to hinder his bid for a spot on the Opening Day roster. The 31-year-old is attending spring training as a non-roster invitee.
Adams will be sent for multiple rounds of cardiac screening, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. Adams was a late scratch from Thursday's spring game against the Marlins, and it appears the team cardiologist wasn't satisfied with the first baseman's initial test results. Brandon Nimmo was subjected to the same kind of testing but was cleared shortly after. The full picture should become clear within the next few days.
