Adams played eight innings in the field in Saturday's Grapefruit League opener and went 2-for-4 with two RBIs. With Adams hurting and Allen Craig limited by shoulder soreness, the Cardinals have limited first-base options for the time being. Ty Wigginton and Matt Carpenter handled the position on Sunday.
Adams is on the outside looking in at a bench spot this spring, though hardly by his own doing. He left little question that he is ready to move past Triple-A competition, but the dynamics of the Cardinals' roster make it difficult to see a way in which Adams could make the Major League club unless there is an injury to someone else.
