Nationals' Matt Adams: Smacks 15th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-3 win over Atlanta.

His fourth-inning blast off Mike Soroka got the Nats on the board. Adams had homered twice in his last three starts, giving him 15 on the year, but his .235/.273/.519 slash line and sporadic playing time while splitting reps at first base with Ryan Zimmerman make him tough to roster outside of NL-only fantasy formats.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Slugs 14th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

Getting the start at first base while Ryan Zimmerman manned the DH spot in an AL park, Adams clubbed his second homer of July and 14th of the season. The veteran slugger's playing time has been inconsistent since Zimmerman's return from the IL, and Adams' .237/.277/.520 slash line on the year doesn't make a strong case for more action.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Sitting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Marlins.

Adams, who slugged a solo homer and drew a walk in Wednesday's 3-1 win, finds himself on the bench for the fourth time in six games and looks like he'll have to settle for a part-time role now that Ryan Zimmerman is back from the injured list. The lack of a clear path to playing time largely limits Adams' appeal to NL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Belts 13th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a 3-1 victory against the Marlins on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old is currently on a power surge, as he's belted four homers in his last eight games. He's only hitting .244 but sports an ISO just under .300, as he has 21 extra-base hits, including 13 home runs, in only 160 at-bats. Adams also has 36 RBI and 25 runs thus far in 2019.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Tigers.

Adams has been on a tear of late, hitting six home runs in his last 10 games, but he will be held out Friday against southpaw Daniel Norris. Adams has played regularly at first base since late May, but his playing time figures to be affected in some fashion when fellow first baseman Ryan Zimmerman comes off the injured list Friday.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Homers for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run during Thursday's 8-5 win over the Marlins.

Adams pulled his side back from an early deficit with a three-run home run to right field in the sixth inning. His home run was the third over his last four starts and his second in as many days. Adams now owns a .820 OPS to go along with 12 homers in limited playing time this season and should continue to see semi-regular at-bats for as long as he keeps it up.

June 28, 2019 12:28 AM
Nationals' Matt Adams: Smacks 11th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run Wednesday against the Marlins.

Adams took Wei-Yin Chen deep in the sixth inning to put the Nationals up 4-1. It was his 11th home run of the season and second against a southpaw. Adams has been on a power binge of late, recording five homers in his past nine starts. Despite the strong stretch, Adams could see his playing time take a significant hit with the return of Ryan Zimmerman (foot), who could be activated from the injured list as soon as this weekend.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

Adams sits even with righty Trevor Richards on the mound for the Marlins. He owns an excellent .981 OPS with four homers over his last 10 games. Howie Kendrick will start at first base.

June 23, 2019 08:32 AM
Nationals' Matt Adams: Mashes 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams went 2-for-4 with a walk and a two-run home run in Saturday's 13-9 loss to Atlanta.

The veteran slugger now has 10 homers on the year, including four in his last six games. Adams' .254/.288/.529 slash line on the season isn't outstanding, but he's forming an effective platoon at first base with Howie Kendrick while Ryan Zimmerman (foot) remains sidelined.

June 21, 2019 03:28 PM
Nationals' Matt Adams: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is not in the lineup Friday against lefty Dallas Keuchel and the Braves.

Adams has started against a lefty just once all season. Howie Kendrick will start at first base in his absence.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Drives in seven Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and seven RBI in Sunday's 15-5 win over the Diamondbacks.

The seven RBI were a career high for Adams, who did his damage on a three-run blast off Zack Godley in the third inning and a grand slam off Stefan Crichton in the eighth. Adams, who also homered in Saturday's loss, is expected to continue occupying the large side of a platoon at first base now that his recent bouts with an oblique injury and back spasms are behind him. The Nationals are tentatively slated to face four right-handed starting pitchers in their series with the Phillies that begins Monday, so Adams could be a quality option in many weekly fantasy formats.

June 15, 2019 08:44 PM
Nationals' Matt Adams: Lifts seventh homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in a 10-3 loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Adams put the Nationals ahead 3-2 in the bottom of the first inning with a blast off Taylor Clarke. Since returning from the injured list May 22, Adams is hitting .235 with three homers and is now holding a .252/.280/.487 slash line with 20 RBI in 119 at-bats.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Battling back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams has been out of the lineup for a few days with back spasms, not an oblique strain as originally reported, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Adams has been out of the lineup since leaving Monday's game with what had been termed a strained left oblique. Regardless of the nature of the injury, he's back in action for Saturday's game against Arizona.

June 15, 2019 12:28 PM
Nationals' Matt Adams: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (oblique) is starting at first base and hitting fifth Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

He made a pinch-hit appearance Friday but hadn't played since June 10 before that. Ryan Zimmerman (foot) should head out on a rehab assignment soon, but in the meantime, Adams will split time with Howie Kendrick at first base.

June 15, 2019 01:56 PM
Nationals' Matt Adams: Remains out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (oblique) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Adams is out of the lineup for the third straight game with a strained left oblique. The team has believed to this point a trip to the injured list won't be necessary, but it's unlikely it will want to operate with a short bench for much longer. Howie Kendrick will start at first base and bat fifth Friday.

June 14, 2019 02:32 AM
Nationals' Matt Adams: Takes BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (oblique) will take batting practice prior to Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

He is not in Thursday's starting lineup, but the team still believes he will avoid a trip to the injured list. Gerardo Parra is starting at first base, and Yan Gomes will be the emergency first baseman while Adams and Ryan Zimmerman (foot) are out.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Trip to IL not imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to manager Dave Martinez, Adams' oblique injury is "a lot better than we anticipated," Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

While this doesn't mean that Adams will avoid a trip to the shelf, the Nationals will wait another day before making a final decision on what to do with the 30-year-old first baseman. He's expected to be re-evaluated during Wednesday's scheduled off day.

June 10, 2019 11:44 PM
Nationals' Matt Adams: Strains oblique vs. Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams left Monday's game against the White Sox due to a strained left oblique, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Adams was removed in the sixth inning of Monday's series opener, and the Nationals later revealed that he'd suffered an oblique injury on a check swing. The team won't know more about Adams' status moving forward until he's re-evaluated Tuesday morning, but skipper Davey Martinez did note that he's "a little concerned," per Zuckerman.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Sitting against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is not in the lineup for Saturday's game versus the Padres.

Adams takes a seat for the third straight game with the Padres trotting out another left-hander in Eric Lauer. Howie Kendrick will start at fist base and bat fifth Saturday.

June 7, 2019 06:48 PM
Nationals' Matt Adams: Out again vs. lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams isn't starting Friday's game against the Padres.

Adams will head to the bench for the second straight game with a southpaw set to take the mound for the opposition. As a result, Howie Kendrick gets the call at first base and will bat fifth.
