Matt Adams: Released by Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was released by the Braves on Thursday.

He was designated for assignment last week and it sounds like he requested his unconditional release. With just over three weeks left in the season, Adams may struggle to latch on with another club in 2020. He hit .184 with two home runs and 18 strikeouts in 49 at-bats this season.

Braves' Matt Adams: DFA'd by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was designated for assignment by the Braves on Sunday.

The veteran slugger started only one of the past four games and has two hits and 11 strikeouts in his past 16 at-bats, so it isn't a major surprise from the Braves. Overall, Adams had a .184/.216/.347 slash line with two homers in 51 plate appearances. The move frees up roster space for Atlanta following the trade acquisition of Tommy Milone.

Braves' Matt Adams: Not starting again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is out of the lineup Friday against the Phillies.

The veteran slugger sat out both ends of Wednesday's doubleheader and is now on the bench for the third straight contest. Adams has a .196/.229/.370 slash line with two homers and 16 strikeouts through 48 plate appearances. Marcell Ozuna will serve as the designated hitter while Adam Duvall starts in left field.

Braves' Matt Adams: Sitting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

Adams sat out for the first game of Wednesday's twin bill with Gerrit Cole on the mound. There has been no word of any injury, so it appears he's getting the day off to clear his head amidst a 9-for-46 (.196) start to the season.

Braves' Matt Adams: Sitting against Cole
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

He typically gets the start against righties but will head to the bench against Gerrit Cole in this one. Adam Duvall will start in left field while Marcell Ozuna starts at designated hitter.

Braves' Matt Adams: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is out of the lineup Friday against the Phillies.

Adams was originally set to sit Wednesday against the Nationals before the contest was postponed, and he'll remain on the bench in Friday's return to action. Marcell Ozuna will serve as the designated hitter while Cristian Pache makes his big-league debut in left field.

Braves' Matt Adams: Sitting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Nationals.

Adams is just 7-for-35 (.200) with two home runs and a 1:10 BB:K through 11 appearances this season. Marcell Ozuna is serving as Atlanta's designated hitter in Wednesday's series finale, with Cristian Pache getting the start in left field as a result.

Braves' Matt Adams: Late lineup addition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams will bat fifth as the designated hitter Tuesday against the Nationals.

The veteran slugger was originally stationed on the bench for Tuesday's contest, but he was added to the lineup with Nick Markakis (potential COVID-19 exposure) being placed on the injured list. Adams struck out Monday in his first at-bat since spending almost two weeks on the shelf with a left hamstring strain.

Braves' Matt Adams: Remains out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams isn't starting in Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

Adams will be on the bench for his second consecutive game since returning from the 10-day injured list Sunday. Marcell Ozuna will take over as the designated hitter with Adam Duvall serving as the left fielder.

Braves' Matt Adams: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams isn't in the lineup Monday against the Nationals.

Adams was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Monday, but he'll play a bench role for his first game back, even with right-hander Anibal Sanchez starting for Washington. Marcell Ozuna will serve as the designated hitter Monday with Adam Duvall starting in left field.

Braves' Matt Adams: Back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves reinstated Adams (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list Monday.

Reliever Chad Sobotka was optioned to the Braves' alternate training site to clear room on the active roster for Adams, who was sidelined for just over the minimum amount of time with a left hamstring strain. Before going down with the injury, Adams had settled in as the Braves' primary designated hitter against right-handed pitching. Adams should immediately reclaim those duties, while Marcell Ozuna settles back into a regular role in an Atlanta outfield that's missing superstar Ronald Acuna (wrist).

Braves' Matt Adams: Return not imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braves manager Brian Snitker said Wednesday that he doesn't expect Adams (hamstring) to be ready to return from the 10-day injured list next week, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Adams is eligible to come off the IL this weekend, but the 31-year-old hasn't demonstrated enough progress in his recovery from the strained left hamstring at this point to gear up for a return. Until Adams is able to run the bases without any discomfort, the Braves likely won't be able to pinpoint a target date for his return to the active roster.

Braves' Matt Adams: Move to IL official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves placed Adams (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

As expected, Adams will be sidelined for at least the next week and a half while he recovers from the left hamstring he strained in Tuesday's 10-1 win over the Blue Jays. Adams had been serving as the Braves' primary designated hitter this season, but Marcell Ozuna should now assume those duties, leaving Adam Duvall, Nick Markakis and Austin Riley to vie for time in the open corner-outfield spot.

Braves' Matt Adams: Likely heading to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (hamstring) is expected to be placed on the 10-day injured list, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The 31-year-old exited Tuesday's contest after tweaking his left hamstring while running to first base, and it appears he'll require at least a short stay on the shelf. Adam Duvall is a likely candidate to see increased opportunities while Adams is sidelined.

Braves' Matt Adams: Exits Tuesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was removed from Tuesday's game against the Mets with left hamstring tightness.

The veteran slugger hit a solo homer in his first at bat Tuesday, but he appeared to tweak his hamstring running out a grounder during the fourth inning. Adams should be considered day-to-day until the severity of the injury is determined.

Braves' Matt Adams: Sitting versus southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is not in the lineup Sunday against the Mets.

Adams is 3-for-7 with a double and two RBI in the past two games, but he'll head to the bench Sunday with lefty David Peterson taking the mound for New York. Marcell Ozuna will serve as the designated hitter with Austin Riley starting in left field.

Braves' Matt Adams: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rays.

Adams has started five of the Braves' six games to begin the season, going 3-for-20 with one home run and four RBI. However, he'll play a bench role Thursday with Marcell Ozuna serving as the designated hitter.

Braves' Matt Adams: Connects on first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Monday's 14-5 loss to the Rays.

The veteran slugger took Jalen Beeks deep in the sixth inning for his first homer of the season, although Atlanta was already down 10-1 heading into the frame. Adams has gotten a surprising amount of playing time after being picked up by the team just before Opening Day, starting three of the first four games and going 3-for-13.

Braves' Matt Adams: Receives Opening Day nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams will bat fifth as the designated hitter in Friday's season opener against the Mets, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

The veteran slugger opted out of his deal with the Mets less than a week ago, and he'll be starting on Opening Day against his former team. Adams spent 2019 with the Nationals and had a .226/.276/.465 slash line with 20 home runs in 111 games, and he's unlikely to fill an everyday role with the Braves.

Braves' Matt Adams: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams' contract was selected by the Braves on Thursday.

Adams opted out of his contract with the Mets on Saturday, and that decision paid off as he was added to the 30-man roster ahead of Atlanta's season opener Friday. The 31-year-old should play a bench role for the Braves to begin the year.
