Rockies' Matt Adams: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow strain Wednesday.

Adams sustained a right elbow injury in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be forced to miss more than the minimum of 10 days. Connor Joe was recalled by the Rockies in a corresponding move.

Rockies' Matt Adams: Likely moving to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams suffered a right elbow injury Tuesday against the Marlins and is expected to be placed on the injured list, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

The 32-year-old suffered the injury during Tuesday's contest and was removed after going 0-for-2 with a strikeout. It's unclear whether Adams is expected to return after the 10-day minimum or is facing a longer absence.

Rockies' Matt Adams: Reinstated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (shin) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

Adams missed just over two weeks with a shin injury, but he began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday and will now return to the major-league club. The 32-year-old appeared in 12 games with the Rockies prior to his injury and hit .105 with a run, two walks and five strikeouts during that time. He should serve mainly in a depth role going forward. Trevor Story (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Rockies' Matt Adams: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies sent Adams (shin) to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday to begin a rehab assignment.

Adams has been on the shelf since May 12 with a shin injury. The 32-year-old will likely serve as a backup first baseman and left-handed bat off the bench once he's reinstated from the IL.

Rockies' Matt Adams: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (shin) hit the injured list Friday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Adams fouled a ball off his shin Wednesday and apparently picked up an injury serious enough to sideline him for at least 10 days. The Rockies called up reliever Justin Lawrence to take his place on the roster.

Rockies' Matt Adams: May have shin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams may have injured himself after fouling a pitch off his shin Wednesday, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

Adams was out of the lineup Thursday for the fifth time in the last six games, so it's not clear he was sidelined by an injury. However, manager Bud Black said the team would have more details regarding Adams' status before Friday's game against Cincinnati.

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

Adams isn't starting Thursday's game against the Reds, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Adams will be out of the lineup for the fifth time in the last six games. Connor Joe is starting at first base and batting second.

Rockies' Matt Adams: Contract selected by Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams' contract was selected by the Rockies on Thursday.

Adams signed a minor-league deal with the Rockies in late March, and he'll now join the major-league club as part of a shuffle after outfielder Sam Hilliard was sent down. Adams appeared in 16 games for Atlanta last year, hitting .184 with two home runs and nine RBI. He should serve mainly in a depth role for Colorado.

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

Adams is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

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.

August 19, 2020 03:52 PM
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.

August 18, 2020 04:20 PM
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.

August 17, 2020 02:48 PM
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.

August 17, 2020 01:36 PM
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.
