Matt Adams‘ hot start will have to wait for its next chance to burn as the Cardinals announced today that they have placed him on the 15 day disabled list retroactive to April 22nd. Adams had complained about tightness in his back and visited the club doctor yesterday to review the injury. Apparently it’s bad enough to side line him for a couple weeks.
Adams had been hitting .542 with 3 home runs in the 8 games he’d played in this season. His slugging percentage currently stands at 1.042.
