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.
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.
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 MLB.com 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.
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.
Adams' mutual option was declined by the Nationals on Friday, making him a free agent, Jamal Collier of MLB.com 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Adams (shoulder) isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

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