Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is hitting just .125 (6-for-48) over his last 14 games and now Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that he’s dealing with a left oblique strain.

Adams reported feeling some soreness in his oblique after yesterday’s game. He’s considered “day-to-day” for now, but the Cardinals might have to make due without him for a little bit, as these type of injuries can be rather tricky.

On a related note, the Cardinals promoted Xavier Scruggs earlier today and he’s making his major league debut at first base in tonight’s game against the Brewers. The 26-year-old batted .286/.370/.494 with 21 home runs and 87 RBI over 135 games this season with Triple-A Memphis.

    For some reason, Matt Adams reminds me of Lurch. He is a good player and I hope that the injury is not serious.

      I often refer to him as “large Mammal.” But the kid can play. He gloves it really well. And surprisingly, he runs really well too. Not sure how many triples he has had but the number would surprise you.

    If you have never seen this guy field and run a triple it is hard to explain how well he actually plays. Hopefully he replacement can step it up.

      Living in the Toronto area, I have not seen him play often; however, I have been impressed when I have seen him. He is an athlete.

    Rod Beck has finally been proven wrong.
