Matt Adams left Thursday's game against the Nationals with mid-back stiffness.

Advice: He went 1-for-2 with a single before exiting in the fifth inning. Brandon Moss, who began the game in left field, has moved to first base. Randal Grichuk came into play center field with Jeremy Hazelbaker moving from center to left. Adams will be reevaluated on Friday. Consider him day-to-day.

Matt Adams went 2-for-4 with a home run and three runs scored in a win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Advice: Adams drew the start at first base with lefty Robbie Ray on the mound, a sign that he's gained the trust of manager Mike Matheny, and he responded with the three-run effort. The homer came after Ray had exited, Adams' fourth dinger of the season. The big first baseman has used a strong month of May to raise his overall line to .291/.344/.477 with 17 RBI and 11 runs scored.

Sat, May 21 Rotoworld
Matt Adams went 2-for-3 with four RBI in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

Advice: Adams stepped to the plate with runners in scoring position in both the first and fourth innings, and he came through both times, twice knocking two-run singles as part of a 13-run barrage. The big first baseman continues to punish right-handed pitching as he's now got three homers and 13 RBI against righties as opposed to zero homers and three RBI against southpaws. Adams should continue to be deployed against right-handers, and he owns a .275/.333/.425 line overall.
