LEADING OFF: Adams set to join Braves, Yankees-Rays reset

St. Louis Cardinals' Matt Adams at bat during the ninth inning of a baseball game. The Chicago Cubs defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Friday

In six major-league seasons, he has a.271 career average with 56 home runs and 217 RBIs. I'll be able to go over there and join another great organization and be able to play every day. Adams is already en route to Atlanta and is expected to start Sunday's series finale against the Nationals.

Though Adams clearly fits in as a nice temporary replacement, Freeman is one of the best first basemen in the game and can obviously be expected to reclaim the position upon his return. "We will face all right-handers the rest of the homestand".

Adams is hitting.292 with one homer and seven RBIs in 31 games this season.

According to John Hart speaking from the Fox Sports South booth during the rain delay, the Braves had been in discussions with St Louis before the James Loney came on board.

When the Cardinals decided that Matt Carpenter would be their first baseman this season, Matt Adams, more or less the incumbent, found opportunity lacking unless in a belated spring training move where he could show that he could play in the outfield.

Yepez is a 19-year-old first baseman in Low-A.

"Third base, first base and he'll likely be assigned to Peoria", said Mozeliak. "Clearly moving Carp to first, and with the dynamics of plate appearances this ultimately made sense today".

"We hate to trade prospects but this was something for our players, for our fans", Coppolella said. The Braves also received cash considerations in the deal. "I think our ownership really stepped forward here to take on money and get a really good player. And so, really felt it was sort of a win-win for everybody to try and do this".

St. Louis also activated outfielder Stephen Piscotty from the 10-day disabled list.

Piscotty, who had been out two weeks with a right hamstring strain and most recently was rehabbing at Class AA Springfield, batted second Saturday night.

The Braves optioned infielder Johan Camargo to Triple-A Gwinnett to clear a roster spot for Adams.
