Mets' Matt Adams: Starts at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (chest) will start at first base and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, 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.

Mets' Matt Adams: First action since February
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Matt Adams: Cleared to resume activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Matt Adams: Still absent from camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (chest) has yet to rejoin the Mets for workouts since undergoing a cardiac screening last week, Anthony DiComo of 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.

Mets' Matt Adams: Headed for further testing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Matt Adams: Late scratch Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was scratched from Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

The reason behind Adams' removal is not yet known. Ryan Cordell entered the lineup in his place, serving as the designated hitter and hitting cleanup.

Mets' Matt Adams: Will get spring work in outfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams said Thursday that he expects to receive lots of reps in left field during the Mets' spring workouts and Grapefruit League games, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Adams would ideally play first base, but as long as reigning NL Rookie of the Year Pete Alonso is healthy, he'll struggle to find even light playing time at the position. As a result, he should get plenty of reps in left field throughout the spring as he attempts to display some semblance of versatility to aid his chances of making the Opening Day roster. Adams' minor-league deal with the Mets likely contains an early season opt-out clause that would allow him to pursue opportunities elsewhere if it becomes apparent there's no room for him with the big club.

Mets' Matt Adams: Lands with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams signed with the Mets as a non-roster invitee Friday.

Adams had a down year in his age-30 season, posting a .226/.276/.465 line in 111 games for the Nationals. With a career .273/.325/.491 slash line against righties, there are teams for which he could play a platoon role at first base, but he's unlikely to get many opportunities there with the Mets unless Pete Alonso gets injured.

Matt Adams: Optioned declined by Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams' mutual option was declined by the Nationals on Friday, making him a free agent, Jamal Collier of reports.

Adams wasn't a particularly major contributor to the World Series winners, hitting just .226/.276/.465 (good for an 84 wRC+) in 333 plate appearances. He came to the plate just four times in the playoffs. He could still be a serviceable part-time option at first base or designated hitter but is unlikely to be a particularly hot commodity on the market this winter.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (shoulder) will start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

Adams starts for the first time since Sept. 12, batting sixth and playing first base. He'd gone just 1-for-29 over his last 13 games prior to suffering a shoulder injury.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Spotted in on-deck circle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (shoulder) was seen in the on-deck circle during Sunday's loss to the Marlins, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Adams hasn't played since Sept. 12 due to a sprained AC joint in his shoulder, but it sounds like he could be nearing a return. The veteran first baseman was ready to pinch hit for pitcher Austin Vote in the sixth inning Sunday but was pulled back in favor of Andrew Stevenson after Yan Gomes recorded the team's second out. At this point, It's unclear if he'll be available off the bench for Monday's series opener against the Phillies.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Hits in cage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (shoulder) hit in a batting cage Wednesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Adams hasn't played since last Thursday while dealing with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder. He hit soft toss and off a tee Wednesday, a definite sign of progress, though it remains unclear exactly when he's expected to get back on the field.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Remains out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

Adams hasn't played in the past week while managing a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder, leaving more action at first base available for Ryan Zimmerman and Howie Kendrick. Considering Adams was in a 2-for-38 funk over his prior 15 games before going down with the injury, he may not recapture a large-side platoon role if he gets healthy before the end of the season.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Out again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (shoulder) isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

Adams will remain on the bench due to a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder. He'll continue to be considered day-to-day.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Dealing with AC joint sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams has a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder and is considered day-to-day, Jamal Collier of reports.

The 31-year-old was thought to be dealing with a triceps injury after exiting Thursday's game, but it actually appears to be a shoulder injury. Manager Dave Martinez indicated the issue isn't serious since it's to Adams' non-throwing shoulder, but the vet remains out of the lineup Sunday.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (triceps) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves.

Adams' absence doesn't necessarily mean he's unavailable since he's not a regular starter, but he has yet to see game action since exiting Thursday's contest. Howie Kendrick receives the start at first base Sunday.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Still out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (triceps) is not in Saturday's lineup against the Braves.

He is not a regular, so his absence from the lineup doesn't necessarily mean he's not available off the bench in this contest. Ryan Zimmerman will start at first base while hitting sixth.

September 13, 2019 03:20 PM
Nationals' Matt Adams: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (triceps) is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Braves.

Adams sustained the injury during Thursday's game against the Twins and will spend at least one contest out of the starting nine. Ryan Zimmerman will start at first base and bat fifth Friday for the Nationals.

September 13, 2019 12:52 AM
Nationals' Matt Adams: Suffers triceps injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams tweaked his triceps during Thursday's game against the Twins, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

The severity of the issue is unknown at this time, so Adams will need to be evaluated further until his availability for Washington's weekend series against Atlanta is determined.
