Player Notes
Matt Adams (illness) remains out of the Cardinals starting lineup for Sunday night's game against the Reds.

Advice: Adams and teammate Matt Carpenter have been battling a stomach bug and didn't report enough improvement after sitting out Saturday's contest to warrant a return to the lineup. He should be fine in a day or two.

Matt Adams, making his return to the Cardinals' lineup, went 2-for-5 with a bases-loaded walk, and scored the game-winning run in Thursday's 13-inning win against the Brewers.

Advice: Adams reached on a fielder's choice and advanced to second base on Jhonny Peralta's single. Tony Cruz then singled, sending Adams motoring around the third base bag to score the winning run. Adams has been bothered lately by an oblique injury. The slugger is slashing .287/.320/.459 with 15 home runs and 66 RBI.

Matt Adams (oblique) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday against the Brewers.

Advice: Adams has been dealing with a left oblique injury for much of this month and his offensive numbers have cratered. The Cardinals -- lacking a serviceable backup option at first base -- need to get him right down the stretch.

Matt Adams is not in Sunday's lineup after aggravating his left oblique issue Saturday.

Advice: We figured something was up when he wasn't in Sunday's lineup against a right-hander. Adams first tweaked the oblique a week and a half ago but returned after missing just two games. It's not clear at this point how long he might be sidelined this time. Daniel Descalso is at first base Sunday, and he could share time there with Xavier Scruggs while Adams is out.

Matt Adams is not in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

Advice: He also sat out Friday's game, but that was against a lefty. With the Cards facing a righty Sunday, you have to wonder if Adams' oblique might be an issue again. Daniel Descalso is getting the nod at first base Sunday.

Matt Adams is not in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

Advice: The Cards are stacking righties versus southpaw Jorge De La Rosa, as Kolten Wong and Oscar Taveras are also sitting out. Xavier Scruggs is at first base, Mark Ellis is at second and Randal Grichuk is in right field.
